    We don’t have any plans to add the ability to add bills that have not yet been paid for, because we think it could cause confusion. I’m going to leave this under review for further voting and comments.

    I forgot that I contacted you about this before :) I just sent another email expanding on the issue a little more.

    If you just removed the limitation of making the split bill sum to the same total, then I could enter ZERO paid and split evenly. This would take care of inputting newly received bills and past due balances all in one shot.

    An update: we’re still not planning to add the concept of a payment for a specific bill or a specific expense. We’ve left this idea under review for many years, but we’re not convinced it’s the right idea for Splitwise. We think focusing on a total balance makes things simpler in most cases. This is also how a bank balance works.

    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…

    We’re not currently planning to build this, but as some users have mentioned in the comments, one workaround is to create a dummy member of your group using an @example email address to represent your ‘kitty’ or shared fund.

    Why don't you just have the house function like a bank in general. I can add a house, but something has to be selected for who paid a bill! The bank can't just have an empty bill that needs to be paid residing in it. Problems like this make me just want to return to billmonk :(
