I have a fast desktop scanner (CZUR Aura) with a foot pedal and would like to scan and send receipts to Expensify in batches. Can I? How? Should they be JPG or PDF? If I scan them as searchable PDF with OCR, can Expensify read the metadata?

    Hi @noelegance

    These are the specific types of files you can send:

    • Picture attachments - Send in pictures of receipts as a GIF, JPG, PNG, or PDF and we’ll add them to your list of unattached receipts
    • Text/HTML email - Send in text email, TXT or HTML receipts (such as airline e-ticket itineraries or rental car contracts) and we’ll convert them into images that work just like all other receipts.
    • Documents - Send in Microsoft Word or PDF documents to convert them to receipt images.

    When scanning receipts to upload, Expensify is able to read one receipt per file. You won't be able to create one document with multiple receipts, but rather create one folder with multiple files and you will be good to go.
