Groups with hidden expenses
Have an option in groups whereby all expenses in the group are only visible to those involved in an expense. I'm specifically thinking of making a group where I can note down presents, and I'd like to call this group "Presents".
In it, I'd keep track of all previous presents - but as the people I share with begin to use Splitwise, they'd also be able to view the expenses for others in the group - which isn't always so good as they may know each other.
One of the most important features we intend to keep in Splitwise is to allow users to always be able to check the math on any amount that they owe. Hiding expenses in groups would either interfere with this or with some of our other features.
You can create an expense with multiple people outside of a group (just add all the participants in the With: field of the expense). These expenses are only visible to the participants, so will not be seen by the recipient of the gift.

When people collectively buy a gift for someone, they don't want the person to know about the gift and want to split the bills among the rest without letting him/her know about it. In such cases we use other means to split the bills even when there is already a group on Splitwise. It would be handy if we could add an expense in a group and it can be hidden from one/multiple people of a group.
Thank you for the great work you guys are doing.
At times I really wanted to hide some expense details from few people in the group if they are not involved. This can be applicable when we buy gifts for someone within the group and doesn’t want him/her to know what’s the gift and the cost involved.
It would be awesome if there is an option to hide the expense details to people who are not involved whenever we enter an expense.
