Expensifiers at Pecana cafe in Montevideo, one of our favorite 10 AM spots

If you’re unfamiliar with our annual Expensify Offshore expeditions, we have a dedicated webpage here to help spark the flame! Otherwise, some tl;dr background:

  1. A complete Expensify Offshore spans four weeks, and occurs once per year. It is always opt-in, meaning any employee can elect not to attend, partially attend, or fully attend.
  2. The employees vote democratically on the destination, which at bare minimum must be internet-friendly and relatively easy on the wallet.
  3. The company coordinates and communicates the essentials, including general itineraries, to-and-from travel, basic lodging, and special events.
  4. Employees self-select to lead or support priority projects dictated by a mix of customer needs and personal interest. The projects are optional, supplementary to daily responsibilities, and ideally completed during the time abroad.

The Arrival

I was a couple days early to Expensify Offshore 2017 in Uruguay.

After six feature films in the nosebleeds of Copa Airlines and a taxi ride at the mercy of Google Translate, I stumbled out onto Montevideo’s Calle Blandengues around 2 AM local time. Historically, this was a Jewish neighborhood and absolutely worth a morning wander, so I left my curiosities for the moment in favor of meeting my Airbnb host, Ramiro.

You may have noticed that we’re not the biggest fans of expense reports. Our deep-seated hatred for them is what drove the creation of Expensify. After several years of battling the forces of terrible expense reports, we’re now 1.6M users strong with almost a quarter million companies under our belt. As a thank you to our community we wanted to offer a new contest.

Here at Expensify, we understand that simplicity is imperative to a smooth workflow. To that extent, we’ve received requests over the years to simplify, or at least add some simple options, to our approval workflow. Today we’ve made good on those requests. We’re proud to introduce two new Approval Modes: Submit Only and Submit & Approve. Continue Reading…

Bulk Report Actions Are Alive!

Jason Mills —  November 12, 2012 — 1 Comment

Good news for Expensify administrators: You’re now one, (err…two), clicks away from approving and reimbursing submitted expense reports in bulk. Yes, that’s right! It’s now possible to approve and “mark as reimbursed” all submitted expense reports with our new “bulk actions…” button, a time-saving feature available to companies on the Corporate Plan.

We’ve added bulk report actions for those companies that see hundreds, even thousands, of expense report submissions every month. It’s also designed for companies that use a multi-level batch approval process, typically ending with final approval in bulk by the CFO. Whatever the case for your company, here’s how bulk report actions work:

Corporate plan subscribers will now see a “bulk actions…” button at the top of the Reports page.

Then, by using filters, it’s possible to select only the batch of reports that require your attention. Bulk actions allow you to either “approve and forward,” “final approve,” or “mark as reimbursed.”

And you’re done! One word of caution: Any policy violations will be ignored with bulk actions, so please make sure that someone at your company has thoroughly audited each expense report for correctness and compliance beforehand.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! If you have any questions, or if we can help with anything at all, please write us at help@expensify.com.
