Main screen.

Please find below the description of the main elements the main screen consists of.

Section "New Payment".

# One-to-one.
Here you create simple payments from one person to another. Just pick a lender and borrower from the list, enter the amount of money and the payment will be created. You can optionally add a comment to this action. 

# Group.
This one is used for calculating amounts of money for everybody in a group of people who are about to split something equally. Just fill in the list of participants and input the total price and MoneyCalc will calculate how much money everybody has to pay.
You have the option of choosing the person who will pay the whole sum and the programme will create single payments between the payer and the rest of the people in the group. That person will be represented in the list differently from the others.
You can opt to indicate the amount of money which everybody is able to give to the payer without deferring it to later.
If needed, you can indicate the amount of people you might want to pay for (such as a partner) and it will be taken into account when calculating.
You also have the opportunity to create 'One-to-one payments' as a part of a 'Group payment'.

# Money back.
When a borrower is returning money back to a lender you can actually create a one-to-one payments and switch these two people but it would be easier to do it with a 'Money Back' payment. When you pick a person from the list of borrowers you will then have a list of creditors who are connected only to a selected borrower. When both lender and borrower are selected, the amount of outstanding money will be set automatically but you can, of course, change it.
Section "Information".

# Summary.
Here you can see who owes what to who. There are two tabs called 'Lenders' and 'Borrowers' which contain lists of those people accordingly. By picking a person from the list you will see detailed information about their borrowing or lending status. From this place you also can quickly arrange a 'Money back' payment and pay off an outstanding amount.
# History.
History is a section listing the date of all payments. It contains both direct and return payments. The presence of particular payments can be set in the filter via the options menu. From this place you also can quickly arrange a 'Money back' payment.

The options menu.

# Settings.
These are things you can customize. It currently only consists of an email address field which you can edit. This email will be included in the crash report in case an error occurs and you might be contacted by the developer regarding the error.

# Messages.
The "Messages" window is used for reviewing and sending crash reports (in case of any) to the application developer.

# Help.
Every screen of the application has the "Help" menu item in the options menu. By selecting it you will read a short and helpful description of the part you are currently in.
