For audit purposes, we really need a way to select a certain category (or job, or vendor, or date etc) and then be able to export all of the receipt images for the selected items. Only providing a link as it is currently structured is very tedious.
I can't believe this software doesn't have the capabilities of exporting MY images that I have uploaded. I thought for this would be a no brainer.....is this ever going to be an option?
@MattH While the only way to export receipt images is by downloading a PDF of your report, we don't have this feature on the road map at this time. If we are able to get enough demand for it here it will have a real chance of being added to the roadmap in the future.
Want to add our use case in here.
When we invoice our clients for reimbursement most require original images of the receipts for anything over a certain threshold.
While all of these expenses are marked Billable in Expensify and exported to Quickbooks with attachments of the receipt images, the issue is how Quickbooks handles those attachments.
Adding those billable expenses to a QBO invoice attaches them to the email individually. So an invoice with 30 line items for reimbursement will include 30 individual images. Many of our clients require a single PDF of these receipt images for processing purposes and sending a large number of attachments can cause their email systems to bounce the email.
Alternatively, we could send along the downloaded CSV with links to all of the receipt images, but that is a bad experience for our clients to have to manually download many receipt images.
So we have to resort to opening all of the reports that include relevant receipts (which may be 5+), downloading the PDF, exporting the relevant pages, and then combining into a single document.
The ideal situation would be, using the "Expenses" view to filter to the relevant expenses - the project tag and billable expenses - and then selecting all and having an option to download receipt images as a PDF or even a zip file of all the individual attachments for those expenses.
An intermediary step that would be use would be the same filtering and selecting all relevant expenses, but then an option to export the PDFs of the reports those expenses are on. At least that way we don't have to filter to the relevant expenses and then manually click into each relevant report to download the PDF.
Amen, and there are multiple requests on here that are really all the same thing but worded differently, dispersing the upvoting progress of the most obvious updates we need for this tool to be useful.
I've done this as well with reports with 70+ receipts, downloading the images and saving them on a document, numbering each photo, and attaching the CVS version of the list. Please make it easier to convert "billed" lists to invoices. This is crazy making, when it feels soooo close. Everything is there, on the page, but you can't export it or turn it into a report.
