In previous Expensify blog posts you may have heard us refer to WOW Fridays. Every Friday at Expensify, we allow our engineers the freedom to work on projects of their choosing, that aren’t necessarily part of our immediate product roadmap. We do this in order to allow them to exercise their creative freedom with the benefit that we end up with some really cool additions to the product. Well, the latest product of WOW Fridays is here: Report Comments! Major props to our engineer Florent for whipping this up.
Comment directly on expense reports
When you scroll to the bottom of an expense report in Expensify, you will now notice that the “Report History” section has been re-branded as “Report History & Comments”. In this section, anyone that can view the expense report can comment on it, without having to leave Expensify.
Whenever someone comments on a report, the people that are shared on the report will get an email notification along with the comment. This makes it easy and efficient for employees, approvers, and admins to communicate about expenses.
Hopefully, this helps make your expense reporting process suck even less. As always, let us know what you think!
We love this feature. Could you add (maybe in the same place) the possibility add an attachment. We would like to be able to add an attachment here in the back office when the report is going through the back office approval process.
Could you email ryan at expensify dot com with some more details on exactly what you would like to do?
We would love some more clarity around your use case and why this is important to you. Thanks!
