Does the API support creating expenses on a user's behalf?

ngscheurichngscheurich Posts: 2 Expensify Newcomer


I would like to integrate Expensify with my app such that the app is able to create expenses on a user's behalf. A quick example:

  1. [email protected] logs into My App.
  2. [email protected] performs some action in My App.
  3. My App creates some expenses in [email protected]'s Expensify account based on that action.

Typically this would require the user to authorize My App to access their account. However, after reading over the API documents, I don't see mention of such a mechanism. Am I missing something? Is there another way you'd recommend going about this?

Thanks for your help!
