Expensify.org/hunger SNAP campaign status (updated April 3, 2020)
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!
Bank feed frequency and admin controls
I have noticed some potential areas of improvement for Expensify.
- Bank Feed frequency - If possible, please update the frequency in which bank feeds update. Currently, there is nearly a week long delay for transaction imports. This prevents our accounting team from managing these expenses in a timely manner.
- Copilot access - Please give admins copilot access by default for accounts that are assigned company cards. I have spoken with technical support many times regarding this matter, and the reasoning has never quite made sense. Expensify should distinguish between a personal and business account from the start to eliminate concerns of admin overreach into one's personal data.
- User-specific Controls - Please allow admins to set controls on a user-by-user basis. I have users that work in separate departments, and thus, need access to different expense categories and classes. I have worked around this issue by creating a new policy for different user types, however, it would be nice if I could do this all within one policy. Another user-specific control that would be useful would be the ability to change approval settings, especially for admins. If self-approval is turned off in a policy, admins aren't able to approve their own expense reports. Again, the work around would be to create a new policy, however, this solution is not ideal.
