Split a transaction with friends
I would like to split an existing transaction, and request someone to pay me back. If for example I paid for drinks in the bar, I would use this feature to request my friends to pay me back.

To make it work with non cake users... maybe something like (?) :
- add split transactions feature (suggested elsewhere): allows you to split and register (inheriting the other payments' data) how much is your personal expense and how much it is (and for whom) for each of your friends
(+ allow to indicate these parts not to be included in your expense statistics?
See also https://feedback.cake.app/forums/924664-open-roadmap-cake/suggestions/40844866-exclude-a-transaction-from-spending-income-and-sa#comments)
- allow registration of incoming cash payments
- allow to link transactions with one another
E.g. link payment where friend XX pays me back 2 cinema tickets with payment where I payed all tickets together (or specific split transaction part)
(+ automatically or allow to indicate payment not to be included in statistics)
- build 'bank address book' of your friends (starting from your transactions + ability to add new) : so you can optionally immediately link your split transactions to your known friends... and automatically suggest linking or notifying matching incoming transactions.
ps For situation where friend pays immediately back in cash: option for split transaction to 'auto'create linked incoming cash payment with automatically prefilled details (?)
I would like to see how much money I owe or am owed according to Splitwise in Cake. That way I know what extra income or spending I can anticipate in the near future.

This is something we’d definitely want to offer within the Cake app as core peer-to-peer money transfers functionality

Agree, although it might be more useful to do this (the splitting) directly in Cake?
To me, it seems a bit restrictive to limit Cake to Splitwise,
there are dozens of apps like that (Tricount is my favourite).

When you are the one who pays for the hotel for your group of friends, any other spending app will show you that you've spent a lot on hotels. Splitwise helps to split costs but connecting it to Cake would allow to show an accurate spending pattern instead of over or under indexing on certain categories.
