    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…

    Please allow payment of specific charges!! It makes it so much easier to keep track of what you’ve already taken care of and what you still need to especially when the group is large and complicated like when five people go on a trip abroad. Your workaround of adding comments or making separate groups adds way too much clutter and confusion with larger groups and the point of this app is to be able to clearly and easily pay what you owe to ppl. I understand for some people it might be simpler to keep the total balance but for others it really isn’t and it seems like a waste and a shame to not add the option for those who really want it in favor of those who might not need it because those ppl can happily ignore that feature. I think this app is great but not having the ability to pay for specific charges is a real deal breaker to me and almost makes this app not worth using. I strongly hope you consider changing that, please!!!
