Enhanced Receipt Images
For the most part, reports and receipts online are great. But when a PDF is generated, the images are severely lowered in quality and full page receipts become virtually unreadable - even when zoomed in 200%.
Ideally, there would be an option to share a PDF with the low-resolution images, but as an administrator, be able to print off / generate a PDF with higher resolution images so that any internal or external audit can be done from within the report.
As it sits now, I have a report with 60+ items reported and I am forced to request individual receipts from the employee so I can verify the information in the PDF.
Here's an example of a receipt captured directly from a mobile device (common method) - this is zoomed in 200% in the PDF version.
When reviewing the images online and directly in the report, the zoom feature shows a much clearer version, if even it's just a small portion shown at any given time as shown below:
Saving the PDF could come with options like:
- Copy sent to Employee = Low Res (they have the originals)
- Copy Sent to Finance = Med/High Res (for internal/external audits
If downloading a local copy, the user could be offered the option:
What resolution would you like for your receipt images?
