Has anyone heard if a feature similar to Quick Expenses in the current UI will be made available in NextGen? The is a feature our travelers use often, especially for mileage.
Thanks for your quick reply. The main reason why our travelers use the Quick Expenses feature is so they can enter multiple company/perosnal car mileage trips quickly at once. For example if a Sales employee does an expense report once every 2 weeks, they may end up needing to enter separate lines for 20 different trips . Entering these one by one in the new UI will be much more cumbersome as opposed to using the Quick Expenses method.
Four things, @alessin11:
I wish I'd taken this question to this community board first. I submitted a case to support with this exact same question ("will quick expenses become available in the new UI?") and it took 2 full weeks to get a response... Lesson learned.
Just went to do my monthly expense, looks like NextUI is now on. My mileage used to take 15 minutes to enter my daily trips, now takes 3-4 times longer without QuickExpense. Any way to revert to the old UI for 1 user, or is this feature coming back?
The ability to add mileage the way you're familiar with currently is not a priority for when the new UI is officially released for general availability (GA). That's not to say it's not important or that we don't understand how important it is to many of our users - just that other features have been prioritized on the Not Yet Available in Next Gen document.
If your company uses the Professional Edition of Concur Expense, your administrator can revert groups of users back to the current UI if they're members of a group. (I'm guessing unless these groups already exist or there is a plan to use groups in the future, this is not a viable option.)
As well, you’re (the administrator) welcome to submit a Solution Suggestion through the Customer Support Portal. In your suggestion, please include the phrase ‘Next Gen UI’.
This is the best way for the Concur Expense team -which includes developers and designers- to hear what matters most to customers and end users.
