Hi everyone. My name is Rita and I have a lot of NEW in my life this year. New to Oregon.... moved from NJ. New to opening an LLC... Kartal Homes. New to a CRM... Realoffice 360 and that is where I learned about Expensify....so New to this as well. I used to be a bookkeeper so i have no problem keeping track of my expenses however with the new company and the new CRM and this forum, I figured I start the new year a bit differently. I will not put 2018 on here since I have everything in excel in detail but have been playing around with it to start 2019 fresh. I do have a ton of questions. I was originally thinking of getting quickbooks since I have used that in the past before finding expensify so hopefully all my needs could be met here and I will not need to spend any more than I have to. thank you all
Hi @ritak689, welcome to the Community! It's so exciting to move to a new place and you weren't lying when you said you had A LOT of new this year, congratulations to you! I am newer to Oregon myself, having moved here last year from northern Wisconsin. I'm loving the fact that I don't have snow three quarters of the year, that's for sure.
I think Expensify is going to be a great fit for you and since you've already found the Community you're on a wonderful path forward. I really hope that I see you around the Community more as you learn the ins and outs of Expensify.
If you're interested in a little more training, we do offer some free live webinars that you can sign up for here. Cheers @ritak689, have a great week!
Hi, we have just started with expensify (well a few months!) and would love to hear your experiences working with Great Plains (finance system) and integrating with Barclaycard!
Looking forward to engaging with the community!
Hi @hbarve - Welcome to the Community! The best way to get a discussion going around Great Plains is to create a new post specifically asking to hear from other customers; the Introduce Yourself thread may make it hard for others to find your question.
I did find this thread about Great Plains that you might find useful!
[Expensify integration into Microsoft Dynamics/Great Plains](Expensify integration into Microspft Dynamics/Great Plains "Expensify integration into Microsoft Dynamics/Great Plains")
Regarding Barclays, just a heads up that while we can discuss connections in general in the Community we do not troubleshoot any connection issues here. Connection issues often require account details and we'd never ask you to share those publicly in the Community.
Sadly, Barclays requires two-factor authentication to connect third-party software and we cannot support 2FA logins for banks at this time. My team is very hard at work creating connections that can though, and any updates to the Barclays connection will be announced in the Community!
Welcome again, I can't wait to see you around here more!
Hi everyone! My name is Trudie KrieI from South Africa (SA) and working for an agricultural industry who is an animal feed manufacturing company. I am a newbie, and still have loads to learn here. I do all the travel for flights and accommodation for the group in SA for domestic and international as well as for our colleagues from abroad when in SA. And I pay for all bookings with my company credit card and my days are hectic in general and believe that this platform will make my life much easier.
Hi @Trudie, welcome to the Community and to Expensify. I love seeing new faces and getting a chance to read these introductions. It sounds like you have a lot to manage and I'm glad that Expensify gets to be a part of carrying that workload for you. If you have any questions, feel free to search the Community for answers or create a new post.
As you learn more about Expensify and discover ways to make your expense reporting less of a chore, I hope you share that knowledge with the rest of the Community.
I'm not sure if you're using anything specific to book travel, but we do offer a few fantastic integrations you might want to take a look at. Additionally, if you haven't already seen it, we offer a few live training webinars that you can sign up for here.
Hello everyone. I'm Tom from NJ. Our firm is looking closely at Expensify and I will likely have some questions about integrating it into our current suite of core products. So far I like what I see and am looking forward to successful test.

Hello. My name is Scott Springer, and I have my own CPA firm in Round Rock, TX. I recently became an "ExpensifyApproved!" partner, and have been happy with the value and time savings it's bringing to clients.
The information available on the community has been so helpful when I set up my first client, and it has been helpful as I have been taking advantage of more and more features. Looking forward to being part of this community.
We look forward to having you here @ScottSpringer! It's very exciting to hear you're finding benefit in the Community and we have a lot of great plans for making the Community an even more helpful place to be and contribute to.
Have a great weekend 👋
Hi, I'm a self-employed small business bookkeeper/automation specialist. I'm hoping to get the information needed to fast-track my QUickBooks clients on to Expensify. Seems like a lot of information for them to read when they already are spread thin.
Hi @DebS Welcome to the Expensify Community!
I definitely recommend you come along to our webinars to help get you up to speed asap.
Greetings Everyone, I'm Trisha
I joined Expensifly in 2017- before these success coaches were available to assist with properly using the service. Consequently having backed into the process, I'm now trying to use the webinars to become an effective sole proprietor who is prepared at tax time with organized records.
The webinar for sole business owners is elusive! Please someone help me find it and know how to return, as needed, to re-view the training.
Hi I’m Lucy,
I work for a government agency and am interested in the electronic expense process. Just downloaded that app and have a trip in October that I will be using to see the functionality of this app. I may have some questions as I work through this.
