What would happen if two (or more) employees' vendor profiles in QBO had the same email?
This is somewhat of a theoretical question, but since Expensify sync's bills to QBO using the employee/vendor email, what would happen if more than one vendor profile in QBO had the same email? Does Expensify have a process for distinguishing the correct vendor to assign the bill, or would this cause an error?
We use Expensify to send reimbursable expense reports over to QBO as a bill to an employee "vendor", and while each employee has one distinct email address, I am curious about what would happen if that email ended up on multiple QBO vendor profiles. I'm sure the circumstances for this are few, but this could occur, most obviously, by simple human error. More broadly, there may be specific use cases for creating two vendor profiles for a single employee (e.g., for 1099 purposes if someone both works directly for a company but is also separately compensated as an independent party for work out of scope from their normal duties). Admittedly, the cases where this might occur are fringe scenarios, but they are possible nonetheless.
I've seen others asking for the ability to map users/employees within Expensify to specific vendors in QBO, and I'm curious why this is not available instead of the email based sync'ing.
