Make a button for moving settle-balance from one group to another (i.e. from trip group to some general group)
Usually you have a group of closer friends with whom you often use splitwise and for them you want to have general, never closing, splitwise group. Now for some trips you will very often have some of those friends going with you, as well as some other people. So once the trip is over, it would be highly useful if for those closer friends you can transfer remaining settle balance to the general group. Right now that has to be done manually, meaning virtually settling in a trip group and creating same amount expense in general group. What we need is: One button to rule them all
Thanks for the suggestion! We have a very basic version of this on our website – the “Simplify debts with this person” button, buried under friend settings – but it’s very hard to find, and it’s not very powerful (you can’t specify which group you want to move balances into). I’ll pass on a note about this and see if we can clean up that feature at some point soon :)
6 years later and not update on a useful feature.
Instead you overhaul the entire UI and make it super complicated to use now. Haha
This would be useful for closing groups that were created for a one time event and you want to get rid of. I've missed a feature like this quite a few times.

Yes this would seem to be an obvious feature and can't be difficult to implement.... Come on Splitwise, you can do it...

I'm a member of a small group of friends that meets regularly for new outings and activities. We've started using Splitwise to manage the sharing of costs of these outings, but are disappointed that we can't transfer the outstanding balance of one outing to the next (e.g. we name a group related to the outing or activity we are on). We don't want the hassle of settling up small outstanding balances which are likely to even out over the year. We appreciate this will only be relevant to groups that always have the same people in them, but you'd probably be surprised how many similar friendship groups that would welcome this additional functionality being added to Splitwise.

io e la mia ragazza, utilizziamo questa ottima app per le spese di casa ed i viaggi. Per la casa, abbiamo un gruppo condiviso mentre per ogni vacanza, creiamo un gruppo a parte.
Quando la vacanza termina, creo un pareggio nel gruppo per chiuderlo e credo una nuova spesa nel gruppo di casa chiamato "Saldo vacanza XYZ 2019"
Avere una funzione automatica, mi aiuterebbe a velocizzare queste operazioni, che sono molto soggette ad errori.
My girlfriend and I use this awesome app to handle home and vacation expenses. For home, use have a "main" group while for each vacation we create a dedicated group.
When the vacation ends, I used to close it with a fake payment, then I make the same payment to the main group and I call it "Balance Vacation XYZ 2019".
All of this is manual and error-prone, having an automatic function will speed up everything and will make me feel safe
As a User, I want to move the balances of X person from one group to another.
I settle amount of X person in one group and add the balance amount in another group

suppose there are 2 people name a and b
they are having 5 group in common and in 3 group a is owing b and other 2 vice versa.
so you can create a option in the person menu where we see only one amount which you convert all from 5 group. like settle in 4 and remain in only 1.

This will be useful when people are common in multiple groups with you. Let's say X and Y are in groups A(say daily expenses i.e. long-term group) and B(say some trip related expense i.e short-term). Transferring of balance from B to A will enable to settle the group rather quickly.
Wow, unbelievable how badly this is hidden in friends settings. It's exactly what i needed and should be way more prominent.

It would be great to have the ability to transfer debt for one group to another if I have multiple groups with a person. Something like a consolidation. Some groups are more in use than others so transferring the balance is easier than making a payment to settle up.

i have many groups with some people who are in different groups. I would like to transfert debts from one goupe to another
when people plan trips they create new groups. two friends will be in different groups with different amounts to give or receive. it would be good if one was settled with the outstanding balance transfer to another group
Let say I need to pay some amt to person X in group A. And we both in group B. Now I need to move the payment in group A to group B as an expanse.
