    Thanks for the suggestion! We’d love to include better details when simplifying debts, but it’s actually surprisingly hard to show those details in an intelligent way :) The math is very simple, but we’ve found that showing the complete data often confuses people – especially in very old groups, where the “unsimplified” totals might include thousands of dollars of payments to each other (which all cancel each other out).

    Still, we definitely want to show more information! Hopefully we’ll be able to try a few new designs this year and find something that works. Until then, apologies for the inconvenience!

    Would be helpful if there were descriptive tags that went along with simplified debts - just to show where the number is coming from.

    I.e., if A owes B $12 for utilities, and B owes A $14 for drinks, splitwise will just say that B owes A $2. However, with many bills operating among half a dozen house mates, it can become difficult to trace back where the $2 is coming from. So if, when you rolled over the debt, it included some kind of information about the initial bills, it would make things a lot easier to decipher.
