make it easier to add a person to a group
It took me a couple of minutes to find how to add someone to a group which I felt was pretty hidden. I would've imagined that "add a person to group" would be in the right hand panel, or in the view full details overlay.
or ... if i clicked on a user, that I could have a dropdown to add a user to a group.
I can see how that might be a bit tricky to find – very sorry for the trouble! I’ll add this to our list of possible improvements for future updates.

I want to host a party on Facebook. I want to give folks the option of sharing the cost of our dinner or the festivities. This would be a game changer if done well and used effectively.
I like how you can see which friends are already in a group, but i havent found an equally easy way to add a friend to a group after group set up or after other people have been invited.
I always find it impossible to 'create group' on the app - I end up googling it ('how to create new group on splitwise'), and even then I haven't had any success (are the instructions on here for an older version?) and have been trying for 5 minutes. I know it's probably easy when you know, but please could you make it a lot more straightforward and obvious in the app? It's really frustrating. Thanks!

I wanted to add another person to group and it was really hard for me to find it. I went to add people first and then got confused and frustrated. It's much easier with the mobile app.
Make it easier to add friends to a group. The current method is very counterintuitive and involves too many clicks. Each time I have to add a friend, I forget how and have to search again for the method. You should be able to do it from a friend profile or group profile with one or two clicks maximum.
(desktop web) to add person to group, I shouldnt go to the group settings. It not intuitive. A btn should be displayed right in the group.
Currently the option to add an existing friend to a group is buried deep inside two layers of menus, first of all you have to find the gear icon on top right for group setting then you have to edit it.
It's very hard to discover and considering how common the use case is, it should be made easier.
I just created an account and my co-workers and I cannot figure out how to add me to an existing group of people at work who share lunch expenses. This seems like it should be a basic feature.
