Hi there everyone - fairly new to the Concur Invoice world here, but we're looking for a way to find the link, or URL, or other string that we can send to another Concur user so that they can just click on that link/URL and be taken right to that invoice image. Is this possible?
If so, it'd be a great tool for CFO's/Managers reviewing a list of invoices for payment approval, or for auditors. Also, if this link/URL is a field available in Concur Invoice somewhere, can we add it to our Payment Extract download, so that maybe it would be able to get imported into our accounting system (Dynamics GP)? We'd love to be able to build this without going with a full integration / full service connector like the Connects tools from Wipfli/Brittenford. Anyone know if this possible or have tried it?
Great question! Thanks for posting.
I am interested to hear what your fellow community members suggest. I am sure others have had a similar question.
It is not possible to send a static link to a CFO or Manager for security reasons. Anyone that could obtain that URL would be able to view the Invoice image. Instead, what we can do is leverage web services to create a dynamic link back to the image stored in Concur. This link is valid for maximum 30 minutes and is only accessible through a web service request.
