      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.

      With multiple expenses being listed and settled on Splitwise and paid through PayPal (or Venmo), it would be extremely helpful to have a detail of the transaction included about the expenses that were settled. Being able to see that a person paid their portion of bill A, bill B, and bill C would seem helpful for those of us who need to keep closer track of their spending and reimbursement. If I see that I owe money but I'm not told what it is for, I do not trust the app. Perhaps the calculation that goes into "settling up" can just be translated into a receipt to be included as a note with the payment in the outside vendor!
