So sorry for the trouble! This is on our list of possible improvements for the future – I can’t say exactly when it’ll be added, but we know it’d be a useful improvement. In the meantime, our apologies for the inconvenience!
In addition to that, I would also add the possibility to set a fixed person who pays the bills for a group. On the credit card group, for example, the person who pays the bill will always be me so I should be able to set it as default and no need to be asked "who paid the bill" each time.
It would be great to have some entry to be able to set 3/4 preset when you try to add a bill, like `paid by you and you owe the full amount` so people can quickly choose the most used ones. Every time I add a note for something I paid for myself I’m first asked “How was this bill split?” but I have to click “more option”, then I tap on my name to say that I paid for it, then I click on the top and select “split unequally” and finally (and this is the most annoying one) I have to type again the full amount of the bill after my name. You can definitely make this smarter/quick.
I’ll pass on this suggestion at our next team meeting. I’m sorry the payment didn’t automatically get marked as complete – we should have received a notification from PayPal when the payment went through. If you send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, I’d be happy to go in and manually mark the payment as complete for you.
It would be nice to have the possibility to flag new bills as “pending”: when I pay something with my credit card I add a new bill to splitwise straight away, but that transaction is still pending on my credit card account and might change when it is processed. If I’d be able to flag a bill as pending I could check the list of pending bills on splitwise one or twice a week and see if they have been processed in the meantime. If the charged total has been updated I will update the bill with the correct amount in splitwise. Without this is really hard to take track of amounts changed after a credit card transaction is processed.
