How come there are no report controls to prevent employees from submitting negative expense reports?

If employees were reimbursed for something and subsequently received a refund/credit, they need to apply that refund/credit against future reimbursements. However, Expensify still allows people to submit negative reports. Why is there no control that prevents people from submitting negative reports? It is very inconvenient to keep reminding people that they can't submit negative expense reports and that they must wait until their total report is a positive amount.

    @kziaei -

    Hm, submitting a negative expense is a fairly manual process, so it's not something that users run into very often. It sounds like there might be something within your policy settings that could be updated so you're not running into this.

    Can you reach out to Concierge so that we can take a closer look at your account? Thanks!
