Expense Types and Categories

Spoiler
We are trying to re-sort or re-order the Categories and Expense Type view that the employee sees when creating an expense report.  We have a lot of expense types, and many are assigned to Categories that don't make sense.   I don't even know where the Category names came from because they do not align to the Category options under the Expense Adminstration.  The view is confusing to employees and doesn't flow well.   Any advice??

Re: Expense Types and Categories

@barbarab you are able to reassign the expense categories of Expense Types. Under Expense  Admin>Expense Types, go to the Expense Categories tab. Here you can assign expense types to other categories. I've provided a screenshot as well. Let me know if this is what you are looking for.

Re: Expense Types and Categories

Hi there

 

We resorted and reassigned the expense categories a few years ago.  We removed some, retained some and made the expense type user friendly like

Accomodation overseas.

I would suggest that you proceed with caution: 

Concur did the change for us - but wanted to lock out everyone whilst they updated - this was not possible for us.

Things to consider - Expense claims in flight - how will you  handle them.  Once you remove / change an expense type those wating approval are also
                                       effected

                                         Audit rules that reference an old expense type - they do not get updated automatically  eg changing an expense type called

                                       "taxi'    to   taxi/uber did not update the audit rule - causing further confusion

                                       Future  reporting requirements - how will the old changes fit in?  eg if you have an expense type taxi - how will you add that to the new
                                        expense type taxi/uber.  What sort of records does your company require you to retain and for how long?

                                      If you pay Concur to Audit for you -  make sure you have updated any relevant Audit rules

                                     Policies - policies are linked to expense types - you will need to make sure that you have added any new expense to the correct form and

                                     any unwanted expense - removed from the policy and  marked inactive

                                   

 

It is so much more than changing an expense type list.    Overall - the users are happy with the change
