    Updating this because it’s been a while! We still haven’t added this to our roadmap.
    As we mentioned we’ve found in testing that this behavior ends up confusing people, which is why we’ve chosen not to add it so far.

    We’ll continue to leave this under review for further voting and comments.

    I agree that this would be a really useful feature. I do the bills for our household and it can be a big chore. I will never wait until the bill is actually paid to add it to splitwise, that would take too much monitoring when everything is on autopay. It would be really great if there was a 'Due Today/Now' amount, and a 'Total due' amount.

    I do see how this could lead to user confusion, but that's where the UX experts come to play! Here's a few quick ideas...

    1. Similar to how a credit card or bank account shows 'pending' transactions at the transaction list, you could show a 'future' expenses section at the top of the splitwise transaction list. It could even be collapsed by default so it doesn't take too high of a visual priority.
    2. When a user is viewing a balance, you could continue showing the absolute total owed, but allow the user to select the total which could open a dialog with more detailed information about what is due right now. It could just separate between due now and due later or it could show it by range.
    3. There's already an 'upcoming expenses' section specifically for recurring bills. Could you utilize this for expenses that haven't posted yet? Then it would just be a matter of giving the user a way to see what's due today vs later.

    I'd be happy to participate in a discussion if you're ever doing user research

    Thanks for the detailed feedback – it’s always useful to hear, and I’ll pass it on :)

    One small feature you may not be aware of: on our website, Splitwise does allow you to add group members without email addresses, which hopefully helps for the “large party” scenario. My apologies that the same feature isn’t available on our mobile apps!

    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…

    Thanks for the suggestion! I don’t think we’re likely to add SMS notifications in the near future, but I can see how they’d be useful for certain groups of people. I’ll mention this at our next planning meeting.

    This is confusing to see, because my friends keep telling me that they ARE getting SMS text notifications and it drives them nuts! I'm trying to figure out how to turn it off, but I only see notification settings for email and the app. But the app most certainly sends text message notifications somehow.
