Does Expensify provide API about notification (like datafeed about reports that need my attention)?

  1. Is Expensify providing any APIs that list all pending reports that need my attention?
  2. Imagine I'm the admin my company: Am I able to view all pending reports that need attention of all users on Expensify? (I can see status of all reports of my company and know who is responsible for next action). If yes, can APIs provide this kind of data?

I have a look at and I can see nowhere about notification/datafeed.

    Hi @binhnguyendn1606! This accidentally posted twice, so I delete the duplicate.

    Inbox tasks (such as reports needing attention) are not included in the API calls.

    As far as statuses go, anything 'Processing' is awaiting Approval and anything 'Open' is awaiting submission. So those two would be fairly simple to look up via API i.e. filter by creation date and Open status, or submission date and Processing status.

    However, only a user can tell what reports are awaiting their "attention", from the Inbox. This is not info that is pulled via API. This uses a number of different lookups to formulate, such as violations, missing receipts, awaiting submission and awaiting approval.

    With the partnerUserID and partnerUserSecret of your own account, you'll be able to export any report you can already view in Expensify. If you're a policy admin, this means any report that's been submitted on the policy!

    If you wanted access to more aspects of the API for your employees, you'll want to follow the steps outlined in this Community post.
