New Feature: Import from Dropbox

garrettmknight —  November 20, 2012 — 5 Comments

Expensify and Dropbox are giving you something to be thankful for, just in time for the holiday splurging spending season. Yes, with the new Dropbox Chooser, upload any (jpg, jpeg, png, gif, pdf, html, txt, rtf, doc, htm, or tiff) file directly from Dropbox into Expensify! What’s even better? Setup is simpler than making a store-bought pumpkin pie.

1. Sign in your Expensify and Dropbox accounts.
2. From your Receipts page, click ‘Import from…’ and select ‘Dropbox’.

3. Choose the file you’d like to import.

4. Click ‘Select’ and watch the holiday magic happen!

    Nice feature, but it’s almost useless unless you allow multiple file selection. The workflow I had in mind for this is to have a Dropbox folder (shoebox?) full of receipts and to bring them into Expensify in a single click. Looks like I need several hundred clicks to do this. An even more creative approach would be to allow the nomination of a Dropbox folder whose contents are automatically pulled into Expensify and the originals deleted, moved or renamed. Looks like I’ll stick to dragging/dropping for now.
