Bring back Automated Statement Reporting
Automated Statement Reporting was lost a while back, and I cannot possible express what a huge loss it really was. I don't want to get into full detail, but you can see much of the discussion here: https://community.expensify.com/discussion/2086/goodbye-statement-reporting-hello-realtime-reconciliation/p1
I'm now at a different company with a new situation - one credit card statement to reconcile, with cards assigned across multiple domains in Expensify. This relatively simple scenario potentially faced by any company operating multiple brands completely breaks the Reconciliation Dashboard that was Expensify's subpar replacement to Automated Statement Reporting.
Previously, ASR was the absolute best way to reconcile. You filter on reports for that statement, and you can see all unsubmitted reports and it was easy to get those submitted. With expenses separated by statement, you could export the reports once approved, verify your total, and import into your ERP system.
Now, with reconciliation dashboard, you see expenses, not reports. You then have to explain to users to put the expenses onto reports and submit the reports. And then you have reports that cross statement periods - making credit card sweep GL accounts much more of a pain to reconcile. And since reconciliation dashboard is restricted by domain, you potentially can't even reconcile your entire statement in one place. It's an unacceptable replacement for ASR, and honestly, I can't believe Expensify made such a poor decision to use this to replace ASR instead of just having both. Let the users decide which they like.
