    Sorry for the trouble! The best way to do this right now is to set up the bill so that everyone pays for their own share. Just tap on the button that says who paid, change the payer to “Multiple payers”, and then enter each person’s share, and the resulting bill should have no effect on your overall balances.

    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…

    It would be nice if you could just click on a member's name in a given expense breakdown and have the option to have them settle up for that expense and just that expense right in that tab, without having to go to the main settle up tab and input the dollar amount manually.

    Updating this because it’s been a while! We still haven’t added this to our roadmap.
    As we mentioned we’ve found in testing that this behavior ends up confusing people, which is why we’ve chosen not to add it so far.

    We’ll continue to leave this under review for further voting and comments.

    I.e. In a month we will have to pay X. As is, if you set the date for an expense in the future it reflects on the groups balance right now. So if in a month we have to pay a $200 service charge for whatever, it looks like everyone owes that money right now. Add the ability to set future payments, as well as reoccurring payments starting on a date other than the present day. The reminder time period could be the time period that the balance would become active. (So if you set it to remind you 3 days before the expense, at that time the expense would reflect in the groups' balances.)

    We don’t have any plans to add the ability to add bills that have not yet been paid for, because we think it could cause confusion. I’m going to leave this under review for further voting and comments.
