Things we can’t keep to ourselves because IT’S JUST THAT EXCITING!

Expensify partners with Automatic App for one-click mileage expensing

What if there was a way to automatically import your commutes and business trips instead of inputting your drive data manually every month?

Expensify is partnering with Automatic, an award-winning wireless car adapter that is bringing the power of the internet into every car on the road, to help make your expense reports suck less! As one of the first companies on the Automatic Developer Platform, Expensify is dedicated to helping business travelers make mileage reporting easier in real-time.

To set up the integration, plug your Automatic car adaptor into the diagnostics port (found on every car made after 1996) and connect your Automatic and Expensify accounts online. Once connected, the mileage data will be automatically import into Expensify for you so you don’t have to manually enter the data in.

We’d love to hear from you! Let us know what you think of the Expensify—Automatic mileage reporting system, or try it out today and get 20% off using the code Expensify20. Comments or questions? We’d love to hear from you! Reach out to and we’ll be in touch soon. 

Expensify covers a variety of reimbursable and non-reimbursable expense types. With mileage being such a common form of reimbursable expense, we’ve worked to improve the functionality in order to make it not only easier for the user, but for the admin and for accounting purposes as well.

Whenever your employees created mileage expenses in the past, they needed to remember to select the correct mileage category, but no more! You can now set a default category for all mileage expenses per policy.


As a Policy Admin, you can select Admin > Expenses, and then scroll down to Distance as shown above. Then, you can select the category you want automatically applied for any mileage expenses created under that policy. It’s as simple as that.

Howdy from Al and the Success Coaches! I want to take this time to share our newest feature, Automatic (yes, AUTOMATIC) Statement Reporting.

Automatic statement reporting

Automatic Statement Reporting is a domain control feature that auto-creates and auto-populates a report with expenses for an assigned credit card in a given statement period. In other words, Expensify automatically places posted credit card transactions in an expense report for your employees who use corporate cards!

Some highlights of this feature include:

  • Admins can create statement period expense reports for employees with assigned company credit cards
  • Employees can continuously populate the expense report with posted credit card expenses
  • A reminder email is sent to employees at the end of the statement period with the expense report, ready to be looked over by the employee before submitting to the administrator

If you’re as excited about this feature as we are, hop on over to our help page to get set up. As always, we love to get your feedback! If you have any questions just post a comment below or email

Hello! Conor here from the Success Coach team in Expensify. We’re pretty keen on shaking things up when they need a shake, and we’ve recently updated the look of our expense reports and the mobile app SmartScan flow for the better. We’ve also been working hard to prepare for the Real-Time Expense Report revolution, with the eventual goal that an employee won’t need to do an expense report at all, it’ll all just happen. All of this required that we re-think how we organize the policy editor and tidy things up.  Continue Reading…
