Split transactions have been introduced in Financisto 1.5.0. In a split transaction you can divide up the transaction amount into multiple categories or transfer a part of it into a separate account.
To start splitting a transaction you can either tap on the blue icon or select [Split…] category manually:
In the Amount field specify the total amount of the transaction:
New Unsplit amount field shows the amount yet to be splitted. You have to allocate the full amount to be able to save the transaction. Allocate specific amount to a category by adding a new split to the transaction. You can add a split by tapping on the unsplit amount field itself and then tapping on either Transaction or Transfer in the quick action menu or by tapping on the icons on the right side of the field:
Additional items in the quick action menu allow to automatically allocate the unsplit amount by the following rules:
- Amount – subtracts the unsplit amount from the total amount. Useful when you edit a split and then want to correct the total amount to be sum of all splits
- Evenly – distributes the unsplit amount among splits evenly
- Last – adds the unsplit amount to the last split. The last two are useful when you change the transaction total amount and want to reflect it on the existing splits
In the new split screen you can select a category for the split, change the amount and add a note. When you change the amount for the split, the unsplit amount will be updated to show the remaining amount.
Keep adding splits until you’ve got the full amount allocated, then tap on Save. A split transaction is marked by special icon in the Blotter. You can see the individual splits in the Transaction Info dialog.
