Hi! We would like to hire someone to train our staff and help our accountants get set up. Can you give me a contact for someone that could help me with that?
@christyrally Hey! I'm not aware of who would provide this sort of training for-hire, so we'll see if our Community members know of someone.
In general, we have found that employees can get started with Expensify without formal training, and using the Day 1 for Submitters guide. For accountants (admins) in Expensify, things can be more complicated, so they can use the Call button on any Inbox task to get a call back from our Guides team, to help with setup! Plus, they can always ask our Concierge team, who are available 24/7 to answer questions!
Hope that helps with getting started here
Christy, I am another new user and this is a great question. I have searched through the webinars available and don't see a tutorial for onboarding new users either. Did you ever find anything?
