We’d love to integrate with Mint, but the decision is mostly on Mint’s side. If you’d like Mint to add Splitwise, you can let them know in the comments here:Nora commented
I love this idea, but I can't imagine what it would end up looking like in practice. What I really need is a way for Mint to naturally exclude portions of bills that are paid back by my roommates, because Mint's budget system is *extremely* awkward for shared expenses.
Rather than having to pad my budgeted income with what I expect my roommates to pay back & pad my budgeted expenses to cover the entire bill, I just want my budgeted income to be my paychecks & my expenses to be only my share of the bill. (I actually do this manually, by splitting each shared transaction in Mint and categorizing my roommates' share as "Exclude from Mint". It's a giant pain.)
We agree that managing recurring bills could be better. Currently, the way to edit recurring bills is to change the most recent copy and that will change ones that follow. It will not affect the past expenses.
We’re considering how to improve this, and will leave this under review for now.Nora commented
Agreed that the recurring expense process could use an update. I'd love to be able to assign an end date to recurring expenses.
Example - if you have a one-year lease, you could set a monthly recurring rent expense for 12 months.
When the lease is up, if you renew for another year/the rent stays the same, you can just move the end date forward another 12 months. If the rent increases (or you move somewhere else), you can set up a new recurring expense with the new amount.
I think this idea is awesome, and would be totally useful for people. I’m not sure where it would sit on our schedule, but it’s something I’ll bring up with my coworkers!
This does seem like a good change. I suspect we’ll wind up leaving the amounts out of the subject line all togetherNora shared this idea ·
