        Here’s two potential work-arounds if you’re not satisfied:

        1. Let’s say you want to set things up so you can see if people have specifically paid for a certain bill, or for a certain month of expenses. You can create a group just for that bill or month – then, when viewing that group, you will only see balances owed from that specific bill or set of bills.

        2. Once you pay an amount and want to keep track of it being for a certain bill, you could use…
