Requiring Pre-Approval for personal mileage


We just activated the request module to require all travel related expenses to be pre-approved. I'm having difficulty finding where I can require personal mileage to require a request in advance. Can someone point me in the right location? 


In general, every expensed item, booked via travel or otherwise, is needing a request and approval in advance.

Re: Requiring Pre-Approval for personal mileage

I believe the issue is that Personal Mileage is not considered a travel related expense. Personal Mileage cannot be "booked" like Airfare, Car Rental or Hotel. Plus, it is not technically an expense. What I mean by that is the user doesn't spend any money or puchase anything. It is a reimburseable expense, but because it isn't actual spend, it wouldn't require pre-approval. Request is a pre-approval to spend money, not to be reimbursed. 


Does this make sense?
