    @MaryBBT Thanks for creating this idea post. Can you tell me a bit more about your use case for this? Are you looking to have expenses approved based on their department/class?

  • MaryBBTMaryBBT Posts: 13Expensify Customer Expensify Newcomer

    Yes :) this is a work around request. Right now all my expenses including items that belong to a different department are approved by the person I report to. Unless I manually cc the budget owner that is the only way they can be notified in addition to the person I report to (right now). So either a notification that includes all department heads whose departments are impacted by a report gets notified or it gets routed to multiple approvers.

    Hi @MaryBBT  - we've just released our new category and tag approver feature! With this feature, you can configure your Expensify policy to route reports based on the department or class tagged on expenses. Accordingly, I've updated the Idea Status on your idea to "Live feature released!" 🙌

    To learn more about how the feature works, take a look here.
