Expensify.org/hunger SNAP campaign status
The number of families signing up for reimbursement has vastly outnumbered the limited funds available. Though we’re unable to provide a specific timeline on when your report will be reimbursed, we’re doing our best to drive donations and keep our fund moving forward. Rest assured, we’ll review every report that’s submitted per our instructions.
Thanks for your patience!
Override FX rate on the individual expense level
This idea is to the ability to manually change the FX rate for individual expense line. I envision this being an option that the Admin would enable on the policy level. This would of course warrant a flag in the Report Notes so that approvers can see that the FX rate was changed (Maybe even showing what the old rate vs new rate is).
Use case example:
- Lets say I am traveling to Europe and I exchange $100 to €75 in the airport (FX rate is 0.75). That exchange rate the airport vendors gives is usually a few points worse than the actual rate that Expensify uses (FX rate of 0.833). So when I report that I spent €75 EUR, Expensify will use the Expensify rate and the report will show $90 to be reimbursed. In this case, I lost $10 on the conversion.
In this scenario, I would like to override the FX rate in Expensify to specify that it should be 0.75 and that way I would get reimbursed the full $100 and be made whole.
