Allow Batch Downloads of Receipt Images
Currently there is no way within the UI to batch-download expense images across multiple reports.
In our case, we need a way to download these to attach to client invoices (many of our contracts stipulate that expenses must include original receipts). We really need an easy way to do this.
Previously we were recommended to create a CSV export which contains an individual link to each expense. We were then able to "batch download" all these links using 3rd party software as a workaround to this feature not being present in the UI.
More recently, the image links have been made inaccessible to a user that is not logged in (reasonable). The third party software we were using is no longer able to download the links in bulk.
Rather than waste time trying to find fresh band-aid for this issue, I thought it would be a better idea to seek to have this functionality included in the product.
It seems there is plenty of demand for this feature / no shortage of requests for it, yet there has been no commitment to deliver it or seemingly any understanding of why this feature is important.
