Have list-sorting options for the "Groups" list in the lefthand sidebar
My housemates and I create a new group each month to split expenses. It would be easier to locate the right group in the list if we could choose to sort by "recently created". Or, if we could reverse the alphabetical order, then we could start the group name with the number of the month, and the current month would rise to the top :)
Sorry for the trouble! We don’t plan to add support for custom sorting, but groups that have been settled for more than 30 days should automatically be hidden from your list of groups. Hopefully that helps cut down the length of your list a bit!
Also, can I ask why you create a new group every month for expenses? Most Splitwise users just use one group on an ongoing basis, since it lets them keep a history of all their spending in one place. (It also lets them use features like recurring bills, as well as debt simplification w/ many expenses.) I’d love to better understand how you’re using Splitwise, so I can pass on that feedback :)

if you modify the app in a way showing groups in a sorted order bases on our hierarchy of recent activity, it will be easy to use the group which need to be regularly updated. this may not force me often to scroll down to find my group to update, which I always use to update any expense.

When you click on "groups", the groups that you see are which have refunds pending or activity in last 30 days.
My proposal is to decide as a pin the ones I want to see, although there are not activity or counts pending.
They are sorted correct on ios.
User should have the preference to sort the groups according to their choice.

the group list should be sorted based on recently used groups in decreasing order of time. Last Used group should be on top and least used group/s at bottom of the list.
