allow formatting of numbers
may be useful to have a setting whereby you can change the format of the numbers, e.g. decimals, show "1000" as "1,000" etc. thanks
Great idea, leaving it under review since we tend to be pretty conservative about adding new settings. Thanks for submitting!

Hi, this feature would be great in my country the numbers tend to go to thousands and even millions, and splitwise add COP$ word for each value, would be great to only have the $ symbol and also it's neccesary to have digit grouping, the workaround I am applying is using USD as currency but with the values of my own currency.
Any chance to add in settings section ability to choose between preffered decimal mark? There are many countries using a comma instead point, as decimal mark. Concerning both - web and mobile apps.
You should by default add commas to figures since we're talking about money which I think should be standard across all countries. It just makes it easier to read the numbers :) Thanks!
Although in Poland we don't use such large numbers for costs (1 zł is around USD3.80 now), we use yet another formatting for numbers, which may be confusing for Polish Splitwise users.
1. For digit grouping, we use spaces, so one million zł is 1 000 000 zł.
2. As a decimal separator we use a comma, not a period. So, 2 zł and 69 gr (1 gr equals 1/100 zł) is 2,69 zł.
The current format in Splitwise is PLN2.69. We don't really mind having "PLN" instead of "zł", or having the currency code before the numbers instead of it following them. What actually confuses us (Polish users) is the digit grouping and decimal separators, which may lead us to expensive mistakes :) I think that having it as e.g. PLN 1 234 567,89 instead of PLN 1,234,567.89 would help Polish guys a lot. I don't know how much effort it takes, and I think there are other countries out there with the same issue, so maybe just adding an option to choose the format helps. Automatic setting may come later time.
P.S. Thank you Support for a quick reply on the Polish translation topic. I'd love to participate, so I await for your colleague to get in touch with me, as you've said in the e-mail.
Hey team! In Chile we tipically use thousands of CLP in our everyday life, rent can easily go over a million.
Would it be possible to include a character to use as a thousands separator? We traditionally use a period, but anything will help!
Also, we don't really use cents.
It is boring to work with numbers without digit grouping like 2,245,241.23
Please let users set a digit group manner.

it's useful when we use money like in Vietnam where it's common to spend 500,000 or even 1,000,000 vdn!!!

it's been 5 years since the topic started, I wonder if there are any review at all for this feature to be implemented. Dealing with 7 to 10 zeroes are confusing and I can't help but wonder why is this not a feature yet.

I'm using the Indonesian currency (IDR) which means we have quite a lot of digits to work with! For us Indonesians, it's much easier to read 1 million as 1.000.000 instead of 1000000. My suggestion is to have an option to enable this kind of digits delimiter.

some currencies has a lot of zeroes. An automatic thousand separator would be extremely useful - even 1000 USD looks better as 1,000 USD right? well for IDR 10000000.00 vs 10,000,000.00 really makes a difference.
The separator and decimal symbol should be interchangeable in user settings (for those who likes to write 1.000,00 instead) but that is another issue.

It doesn't need to be a setting. Just format all numbers with commas. (My group spent 10000000 on my last trip.)

The price field is not thousand separated, and it's hard to work with that! It could be easier if we thousand separate it!

example - the Indian currency has the format of Rs.1,00,000 as opposed to Rs.100,000.
On the overall when we use this app for small figures, number format may not make sense as we can easily read the numbers. But at times I use this app for bug transaction amount for which we will need the number format.
These small features will add more ease to the users.
Requesting for this feature if this feasible from the development team.
