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.
Ik doe boodschappen voor mijn bejaarde vader, hij betaalt dit per maand terug.

When receiving a refund or e.g. when splitting a restaurant bill with friends, subtract that amound from your expenses instead of adding it to your income.
Sometimes you pay up front for other people or you split the bill and afterwards you can receive the payback. Currently it's not easy to see how much I actually spent on some categories (but for the total income and spending it is clear to see) after paybacks.
I'm paying rent to the landlord for me and my roommates. They pay rent to me separately. Cake counts both the income and spending as rent, so my total 'rent balance' should be my own part of the rent. However when I check the spending statistics, it's as if my rent is the total sum of all my roommates' rent. Can you solve this? Thanks!
I have this situation where I paid something for a friend (he forgot his wallet), after which he reimbursed me (PayConiq; luckily he is glued to his smartphone).
So I have two transactions: an outgoing payment at a shop, and some incoming cash.
I want to ignore the shopping bill, because it's not part of my normal spending, and I feel 'income > reimbursement' doesn't quite cover the incoming cash either.
* Either be able to mark transactions as "to be ignored"
* Or add a "Friends" category, with subcategories "Paid something for a friend" and "Reimbursement from a friend" or something like that. These transactions would basically also be ignored.
The "Friends" option would provide a nice side-effect, like being able to check if you still need to ask for some money 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 link a transaction to another transaction. For example if you go to a restaurant and pay the whole check while your friends still need to pay you back. In this scenario you need to be able to link a transaction to another so that the reporting is in order.
Note: In this scenario the feature is related to bill splitting, but there might be other scenario's that would benefit from this feature.
To me it would be interesting if we could link apps like 'splitwise' or 'wie betaalt wat' to the cake app.
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.
