      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 have just set up this app initially thought it was perfect. But because items have different due dates and types, (outside of a month) as well as level of importance, we would prefer to note what specifically has been paid by each person . ie. the water bill is more important than the payment for the movie tickets.
      It should not be difficult to separate the items for the person and then they can select it as "settled" rather than the amount. The total owed would then go down by that much...
