@D365BC can you reach out directly via chat so we can get screenshots? Perhaps the inputs are incorrect.
I managed to download attachment and stored into blob/database using API
dont read the result into Text, it must be read directly into Instream object.
@D365BC Thanks for reaching out! Can you please reach out to [email protected] for our team to review?
Another challenge for me, cannot understand this logic
if I have multiple transactions, transaction IDs are different why report id is same, I should be able to download pdf based on Transaction ID
I need to attach pdf with every transaction, it will not create multiple pdfs output file. It will create only 1 pdf include all 3 expenses, so same pdf I will attach 3 times.
Think, If I download weekly expenses which are more than 200, how will I run the api to download pdfs and store in blob/database for every single transaction and it will not give me 200 pdfs
Hi @D365BC! It appears you may have missed my last message, but no worries! I encourage you to reach out to [email protected] or to Concierge within the in-app message service in your Expensify account, as they will be able to provide you specific guidance for API setup.
I am using Expensify on a Windows PC. By hit and trial, I figured out following method to get a pdf file with a list of expenses and images of all the associated receipts. Hope someone will find it useful. I am not too tech-savvy and therefore was trying to figure out a simple way to get the pdf without having to use some formulae in Excel reports.
1. Log into your Expensify account.
2. Click on <Reports> tab on the left side.
3. Under <New Report> on the top right of the screen select <Expense Report>. Note: A new expense report will be created without any expense in it.
4. In the new expense report pop-up, click on <Add Expenses> Note: Another new pop-up will open where you can filter and select expenses to add to this report.
5. Select date range in the new pop-up
6. Click on each expense to add the receipts to the report. Note: This will be a bit time consuming if you have too many receipts. I usually have only 15-20 receipts each month and so it took only about 10 seconds for me.
7. Finally, screen will say ‘The current filters show 0 expenses’
8. Close the pop-up
9. Go back to the <Reports> tab
10. Click on the newly generated report under reports tab. Note: This should be the top report in the list.
11. Once the new report opens in a new pop-up, click on <Details> on the right top corner of the screen.
12. Choose the option to either download the pdf or print as pdf.
13. Now you will have a pdf file with list of all expenses for the period selected along with the images of receipts. You can save it on your PC.
Just following up on this Topic. i'm not IT guy and all solutions related to bulk download of receipt stored on expensify seems a bit complex to me.. would there be someone able to assist on how to run this script allowing to download all receipt at once in a readable format (JPEG or PDF for instance?).
thanks a lot
