Hey Sameer – are you talking about the “Simplify debts” feature for groups? In general, we’ve assumed that everyone in a group knows each other, as groups are usually used for apartments and group trips and things like that. Could you give me more details on the specific case where this problem is happening for you? It’d be good to have more background and make sure we understand where you’re coming from.
On the other hand, if you’re talking about the “Simplify debts” feature that works outside of groups, then our algorithm should take this into account already, as it only moves around debt between people who already have outstanding balances with each other.

Maybe the title is a little confusing but this is something just happened and we didn’t know how to solve it.
At the end of a trip we had to settle up, simplifying debt was on and this was the situation:
A gets back 600€
B gets back 200€
C owes 500€
D owes 300€
Splitwise said (two settle up for C, one for D)
D owes A 300€
C owes A 300€
C owes B 200€
Actually because the settle up was hard to do between C and B, we wish to have a situation where D has to make two settle up, and c just one:
D owes B 200€
D owes A 100€
C owes A 500€
This is to avoid more complicated ‘settle up’ and to choose a bit more, even intended the total is the same
