We’ve been dying to improve our “Divide A Bill” dialog box for months, and a preliminary version is finally ready! Take a look below, and please give us feedback or suggestions in the comments. We’ve been rolling it out slowly over the past few days, and all users will have it by early next week.
The form has been completely redesigned from scratch, with two killer new features.
- You can add people into the “With’ field just like an email – without tons of clicking. SO much easier, and much more like the iPhone and Android apps.
- Adding new people will automatically add them into the expense without clearing your existing data (a big complaint in the old version).
If for some reason you hate this new form, a) please tell us why! and b) there will still be a link to the old “Divide A Bill” form for little while, as you can see in the screenshot.
We have also merged the “Simple IOU” and “Divide A Bill” buttons for simplicity. You can expect the same on the mobile apps in our next big update. If you happen to add exactly one other person to the bill, and you want to create an IOU for the whole amount by changing the hyper-linked sentence:
Unfortunately, itemized bills still link to the old form (and clears your data – sorry!), which we will definitely be updating as soon as we can. Itemized expenses are surprisingly complicated to support with all of the snappy AJAX and auto-complete goodness. All in a days work!
