Pro tips, best practices, and feature updates that you don’t want to miss.

This is a huge announcement.  After more than *a year* in active development, we’re finally turning on RTER (Realtime Expense Reports) as the default for all new policies.  This is a big, big feature, touching every single aspect of the product.  Most of the changes are too subtle for you to even notice, but the sum of it all is that now Expensify works like this:

  1. Just take a picture of your receipt
  2. It’ll be put into your accounting package of choice
  3. And you’ll be paid the very next day

When properly configured (which starting today is the new default configuration), you literally just take a picture of the receipt and we take care of *everything else*.  Click below to start your free trial, or upgrade your existing account (at no additional cost): Continue Reading…

Hey there, it’s Matt from the Success Coach team in Expensify. Straight off the success from our Real Time Expense Report feature launch, you can now import Items from QuickBooks Online and use these Items in place of categories for expenses on your policies. Items are an excellent way to allow for greater reporting in QBO.

To quote Deborah Defer, Senior Director of Accounting Services at BDO:

“Small businesses may have the need for additional reporting.  Utilizing multiple feature sets of QuickBooks Online with invoicing customers, classing, items, locations, and items on vendor bills provides the ability to create customized  reports.  This is huge!”
