Can you add the ability to split expenses when using the Expensify Card?

We just recently switched to the Expensify card and so far it is working great!  The only problem I have is that I cannot split the expenses when using it.  I purchase things for our church and they have specific categories that they need to go in when being submitted and I haven't been able to do that since getting the card.  Now I am going to have to do multiple transactions when I use the card at Costco and Sam's and that is not always convenient.  Please enable that feature!!!

    Hey @Jennifer_J0hnson!

    Great suggestion and definitely something that we are looking into!
    In the meantime, I've turned your post into an "Idea" so we can gather votes and use cases. Workcases and suggestions from customers help us develop new features and it would be great to hear from everyone! Make sure to upvote your post here! :)

    The vote on this is not working. But add mine. This is a MUST if we are to use the Expensify Card.

    @Jardover, @Miami, @Jennifer_J0hnson -- I have moved this post to the appropriate category so you can now vote for it, please do!

    Jardover and Miami, is your use case similar to Jennifer's? Or, do you have another use case for why you need to split the Expensify Card expense? I would like to make sure that we have all the context we need to support the change. 

    Thanks all!

    Our reason for wanting this is similar to Jennifer Johnson's. E.g. we often do orders from Staples or Amazon that involve purchasing items in different categories (e.g. we might distinguish between office supplies, office equipment, computer software on the same order). Another example would be a restaurant with multiple staff members present, we might split the bill between different staff members professional expense allowances. each staff member has his own budget.  Another example would be paying a conference center for a retreat that is shared by Junior high and Senior High youth groups. They have separate budgets/accounting categories, so it needs to be split.

    We need this too! (Ps, most businesses need this!)

    Thank you for the example! Having a use case is super helpful in helping the product team design a feature that fits user needs.

    @slewalt is your use case similar to the two that have been mentioned above?

    Yes, we need to be able to split expenses into different accounting categories as well. I just asked a co-worker about it & she has a "split" button on her app under "more options" at the bottom of the expense, but I don't have the button on my app. Is this something that needs to be turned on in the admin?
