I can definitely see how this would be useful! Hopefully we can consider adding support for a “kitty fund” or the like sometime in the future.
For now, I’ve seen a few people simulate this by adding an additional member to their group called “Kitty fund”, and using that extra member to keep track of shared funds. For example, if everyone pays $100 to the kitty fund at the beginning of the month, then you can choose the kitty fund as the payer for new expenses like groceries or rent. Splitwise should accurately update to show how much money the kitty fund has left (e.g. “The kitty fund owes $50” = the kitty fund has $50 left). It’s definitely a bit of a hack, but it might be worth trying if you and your friends always split bills this way.ravinder dasila commented
Sometimes, we only know the contribution of individuals (which then has to be distributed) rather than whole expense. So, there should be provision to first add contribution amounts, which automatically add up to become total amountravinder dasila supported this idea ·
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!ravinder dasila commented
Isnt there a ‘split by share’ option?
