Now when I view IOUs/bill listings b/w any friend and me, I am only able to view the value of that particular bill, but not the cumulative cost (till that point). The only cumulative number I find is at the top of the page, but that is not helpful in case I want to find out how that number came about over different months. Plus, of course, the graph view only works for the current month! It'd be great if you could address these issues ASAP.1 vote
We’ve gotten some recent requests for the cumulative amount of peoples tabs lately. I think this is a great idea, and one that we’ll be discussing on how to implement in the near future.
We do also plan on letting our users see the history of our graphs in the future also.
Thanks for the suggestion. I clarified it so other users could find and support it and we’ll pass it on in our next planning meeting.
An option to treat the group as an entity such that instead of being told I owe person x report back that I owe the group (or the group owes me)
I don't need to see suggestions of who I pay back, because I will be paying to the group next time I pay for something.1 vote
I’ll pass on the suggestion! For now, you should be able to do this by just ignoring the suggested repayments, and only paying attention to your total group balance. Apologies for the trouble!
Thanks for the suggestion. Currently printable monthly summaries and statistics are only available on our website. I’m leaving this under review to see how many other users would appreciate this feature.
Would love the ability to “like” a transaction1 vote
Thanks for the suggestion! I’m not sure that this is something we’re likely to add in the near future but I will leave it open for now for further voting.
Adding colours to names would make it easier/quicker to identify who paid what1 vote
Thanks for the suggestion! I’m not sure that this is something we will add, but I’ll leave it under review for now.
Add a section where I can add the login info for all out utility provider websites and landlord contact data.
The whiteboard is much too small1 vote
Great idea! We’d love to help facilitate logins to Utility providers, but for security reasons, we plan to add some additional layers of security (optional PIN login, stronger password controls, and external auditing) before we provide anything that should be good enough for storing login data securely. For now, I would not recommend storing login data or account details in any of the data entry fields on Splitwise.
When I settle up with my roommates, we usually settle up at the same time. When we do, I often get a barrage of notifications and email, one or more of each from all my roommates.
It would be great to get a single email with all of the transactions from the last 24 hours (or 12 hours, or 1 hour...) instead of a barrage of emails, or at least be able to snooze or modify my email notification settings.
Thanks for the suggestion, and sorry for the trouble! We’d like to do better digest emails at some point (like our monthly summary, but for weekly or daily updates), but we just haven’t gotten around to it yet :) For now, if you’d like to turn off some of the emails you’re getting, you can change your notification preferences from your account settings page. Hope that helps!
In Android app there is a 'Group spending summary' screen where I can select 'All time' mode and see how much did the trip cost to me.
In the WEB app this screen shows data only for one month at a time that is inconvenient if trip didn't fit in a single month. Please, add 'All time' mode to WEB app.1 vote
Thanks for the feedback! I don’t expect we’ll be revisiting the trends view on the web app soon, but this does seem like a useful improvement.
Eg. If A and B paid 2500 and 1500 for Deposit (of anything) and B takes back the entire 4000, Then B owes A - 2500.1 vote
Thanks for the suggestion! I definitely see how this would be useful for apartments and rentals, where deposits can be a pain to figure out.
it allows me to delete one by one that too it take me to individual sheet eveyrtime. Kindly suggest if there is any easy wayaround1 vote
We’re planning to revisit that UI soon and this problem should go away in one of our upcoming versions. Unfortunately, until then, there’s no good workaround. You could submit a support ticket with details of which expenses you want undeleted and we may be able to do them all at once.
I share this app for the flat with my boyfriend and it would be useful to have a simpel list with all the expanses that we have, to know at the end of the month how much we spent.
Within this list it would be great to be abel to put the expanses into different categories and give them different colours therefor.1 vote
I’m curious, what kind of categorization are you looking at? We already support categorizing expenses by type – entertainment, food & drink, home, life, transportation etc with lots of subcategories.
If you have a request for specific category to be added, you can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for the suggestion! I’m not sure this is something we’ll add in the near future but I’ll leave it open for further voting.
I un-deleted an expense yesterday but was a bit confused when I saw the button still appearing in the activity page. Maybe removing the button (I totally understand the logic for keeping the deletion activity in tact) would be great and not so confusing :)1 vote
Hey Estelito – that definitely makes sense! I’ll add this to our list of to-dos for the web app. (I believe our iPhone and Android apps already work this way, so hopefully we can catch up the web app soon.)
When purchasing online or through apps, for Food, Groceries or any other ecommerce or shopping apps, directly provide a sdk for the apps to split the amount and easy access for the people splitting. Many a times people forget that they had paid for a group treat and then when re adding they have to check through bank statements or orders to know the exact amount. Splitting then and there would make it easier.1 vote
Thanks for the suggestion! We’ve considered doing something like this, I’ll leave this open for further voting for now. Thanks again!
Hire servers in or near Asia so that it is easier for the app to push/pull transactions. In China we had lots of trouble syncing bills.
The internet that we had was 'ok'. It could play youtube videos at 144p, so transaction syncing should not be a problem then right?
Anyway maybe increase the time-out for http requests.
All the best!1 vote
Thanks for letting us know. Unfortunately, neither of these are simple things due to how our infrastructure currently works. China is also a challenging environment because of how it connects to the internet for the rest of the world. Hopefully we’ll be able to improve this in the future.
It would be cool if I could create a custom filter for totaling expenses in a group. Use case: My housemate never names his grocery runs anything sane (i.e. something with 'groceries' in it so that your metadata tracker picks up on the category). I would like to create a glob/regex filter to add in all expenses with "woodman" in the title to grocery category.
Unless your auto-categorization is perfect or this filter feature is added, the usefulness of pro-charts is limited.
Pro looks promising so far, thought. Thanks!1 vote
Thanks for the suggestion Julian, and for upgrading to Pro.
I can definitely see how this would be useful for some folks. Not sure if/when it’ll make it onto the road map (we’re 4 engineers), so for now let me suggest that your roommate manually categorize all the groceries expenses they don’t name something ‘common’.
This is a personal finance tool. Would be great to synch to this application and pull in custom categories1 vote
Thanks for the suggestion!
I’ll leave this under review to see if others are interested in this as well.
This may sound a bit odd, but it's trivial to enable in xcode, I think.
I often use Splitwise on my ipad. Since you only have an iphone app, that's what I use.
I often prop up my ipad with the charging port facing up in portrait mode so I can charge it without the cable interfering. This doesn't work right with Splitwise, which will not run upside down like other ipad apps will.
I believe this is just a check box in xCode.1 vote
Hmm…our iOS guy thinks this might be a bit complicated because of some of the custom drawing we do, but we’ll add it to the list of possible future improvements :)
Thanks for the clear suggestion. Makes sense to me, but also probably slow for large accounts.
Leaving open / under review to see how many other folks want to vote for it.
- Don't see your idea?
