Announcing new and improved Per Diem tracking
Per Diem tracking in Expensify has just gotten an amazing facelift! 📆
You can now track and submit Per Diem claims by departure, return date, and time, and view only the subset of rates you need depending on where your trip takes you and Expensify will then calculate your trip’s Per Diem total for you - no extra work required!
Your new Per Diem expenses will be easily digestible for approvers, with a quick receipt breakdown showing the rates you've claimed that make up the total.
All new policies will now have the updated version of Per Diem enabled by default (when you toggle it ON from the policy settings). Anybody currently using Per Diem has been contacted and instructions have been added here to help with the migration (which needs to be completed by the end of April 2020).
Check out the How-To's below for more on creating new Per Diem expenses, setting it up as an admin and migrating over.
Got an idea of what could still be improved?
Fantastic, we've got a few ideas, and it'd be great to get your feedback too. We’re particularly interested in ideas explored in our Deep Dive around balancing the global requirements for Per Diem with any individual country’s specific needs.
In the short term, we're looking to improve things like the export of your Per Diem data for your jurisdiction’s tax authorities and maybe even improve the export of new Per Diem dates/times to accounting integrations to help with that too.
If you're keen for these or any others, discuss them below and maybe even kick it off as an idea yourself! Thanks for reading, and enjoy our shiny new Per Diem feature!
