Enhanced Corporate Card Control: Tallie Expense Reports Software 11.3 Release Notes

Here at Tallie, we understand that credit card transaction management is mission-critical for your expense report software. Our goal is to provide the most reliable credit card options among all the expense tracking products on the market, and streamline the processes for significant time savings. In this release, we are introducing our “Bank Data Delivery” credit card import experience for Visa and American Express. Additionally, we added the ability to export corporate card expenses to bank accounts in QuickBooks.

Bank Data Delivery Credit Card Feeds

At Tallie, we take pride on the award-winning integrations we’ve built from the ground up. In order to support an even wider range of financial institutions and provide comprehensive in-house support for credit cards, we implemented our newest credit card integration, Bank Data Delivery. Bank Data Delivery is the fourth credit card transaction import method we provide, which will coexist with credit card aggregator, statement upload, and Direct Connect (OFX). Because it requires an agreement with your bank, to initiate a Bank Data Delivery connection admins must contact a Product Expert, who will enable the feature, walk you through the setup and ensure a successful data delivery from your bank.

Tallie Expense Report Software - Bank Data Delivery Credit Card Feeds

Bank Data Delivery supports corporate card sub-accounts from Visa and American Express. New sub-account shows up automatically when the bank sends transactions attributed to it.

Bank Data Delivery is optimal for businesses with commercial cards that need support for tens to hundreds of corporate card sub-accounts. Once a profile setup has been completed, the credit card feed will appear like a normal feed as our current connection methods. Similar to the functionality when a new account is detected by our aggregator or PEX, when the bank sends transactions attributed to a new sub-account, it will show up on the Credit Cards page automatically.

At this time, Visa and American Express are fully supported. We plan to roll out Bank Data Delivery to MasterCard in early 2017. See our KB article for more details.

Export Corporate Card Transactions to Bank Accounts in QuickBooks

Admins who use Tallie to track debit card and/or bank account transactions (or use our PEX Card integration) can now export to QBD bank accounts! QBO users have had this functionality for a while and now QBD users can do the same.

To use this feature, simply map the corporate card to a bank account on Manage Lists > Company Cards page, and export per usual. Non-reimbursable charge export generates a check, while non-reimbursable credit export generates a deposit. Note that both charge and credit are exported to the specific, individual account mapped to the account on the Company Cards page. This feature also honors export settings including “Send merchant name to accounting” and custom payment memo.

Tallie Expense Report Software - Export Corporate Card Transactions to Bank Accounts in QuickBooks

Non-reimbursable charges are exported to the Bank account mapped to the company card.

 

Tallie Expense Report Software - Export Corporate Card Transactions to Bank Accounts in QuickBooks

Non-reimbursable credits are exported as deposits to the Bank account mapped to the Company Card. The “Received From” field contains the merchant name.

New Version of TallieConnect for QuickBooks Desktop Users

We have updated our QuickBooks Desktop sync tool TallieConnect to version 11.1.30. This version addresses the export duplication issues for customers in hosted environment and has been fully tested for QB 2017 compatibility.

Tallie Expense Report Software - TallieConnect Wrong File Detection

Warning when the selected QuickBooks file is not the same as the previously-synced file for the logged-in enterprise.

For admins who manage multiple Tallie accounts, we also made it harder to sync the wrong QB file by displaying a warning when the selected file to sync is different from the previously-synced one.

Tallie Expense Report Software - New TallieConnect Settings

New Settings menu: Ability to allow background syncing and turn off notifications.

Additionally, we made some changes to improve user experience, including the ability to suppress notifications and sounds in Settings, ability to allow TallieConnect to do background syncing, which will prevent QuickBooks from opening a secondary window when the correct file is already open in the primary window, and display a notification when Tallie is in maintenance mode. Download and install the latest version now to take full advantage of TallieConnect!

Additional Enhancements & Fixes

  • Sync Settings: Ask a Product Expert about configurable sync restrictions and the ability to suppress billable flag on export. (Only available to be configured by a Product Expert)
  • New Currency: Tunisian Dinar (TND)
  • CSV Export Template: We have added two additional Tallie Field options for Custom Export Date.
  • Intacct Multi-Entity: Ability to mass update “Export expenses to” in People list
  • Fixed additional approvers disappearing or not saving issue.
  • Fixed various QB export issues, including erroneous error “Merchant name already exists,” not billable expenses with project info being exported as billable, and various incidents of reports being stuck in Queued.
  • Fixed Analytics page fails to load when sorted by Merchant.

Happy holidays from Tallie!

The Fastest Expense Coding You’ve Ever Seen: Tallie 11.2 Expense Report Software Release Notes Featuring Spreadsheet View

We’ve been working on a new feature on the Purchases page for the past few months and we’re excited to unveil it in this release — the Purchases Page Spreadsheet view! Built with usability and efficiency in mind, the Spreadsheet view is the easiest-to-edit view on the Purchases page thus far. In addition, we implemented notifications to approvers when reports have been unsubmitted, added support for export as draft to Intacct, and addressed a variety of export issues that were raised since the last release. Read on for more details!

Purchases Page Spreadsheet View

The much-anticipated Spreadsheet view is now live! In the upper-right corner of the Purchases page, you can now switch between the Tallie signature tile view, the table view, and the latest Spreadsheet view. The Spreadsheet view is designed to provide power users a way to rapidly code and edit expenses by incorporating tab and return commands to navigate between cells. By displaying all expense details in individual cells, the Spreadsheet view also offers enhanced visibility.

Tallie Expense Report Software - Purchases Page Spreadsheet View

The Purchases Page Spreadsheet View features in-line edit and tab and return commands to navigate between cells.

Similar to Microsoft Excel, hitting the Return/Enter key saves the current cell’s content and navigates to the cell below, and the Tab key moves the cursor to the cell on the right after saving the current cell’s content. The Tab and Return magic doesn’t end here. Holding down the shift key and hitting Return saves the current cell’s content and takes you to the cell above it, while Shift + Tab saves the current cell before moving the cursor to the cell on the left. Just like Tile and Table views, use the category icons to select a few expenses. Once these expenses are selected, you may choose to edit all, delete all or start a report with the selected expenses.

We released Spreadsheet as a beta feature as we continue to fine-tune it, and we’re excited to hear your feedback and suggestions if you have any! Please note at this time Spreadsheet view is not supported in Firefox or IE browsers (including Edge).

Export Expense Reports as Draft to Intacct

The majority of our Intacct customers rely on Tallie to handle their approval process for expenses prior to export to Intacct. However, some of you have requested additional flexibility to allow for later approval processes in Intacct after export from Tallie. In order to serve your needs, we now offer export to both the Accounts Payable module (bills) and Time & Expense module (expense reports) in Draft state, in addition to the already-supported Approved state. Please note that a manual process is required in Intacct to mark these Draft bills and expense reports as Approved prior to payment.

Tallie Expense Report Software - Export to Intacct as Draft

Exporting reimbursable expenses in Draft state provides additional flexibility for exported data in Intacct.

Notifications to Approvers When Reports Have Been Unsubmitted

Tallie now sends a notification to anyone who received an approval email when the report has been unsubmitted, regardless of whether they’ve approved the report or not. (We released this feature early so you might have noticed it already!)

Tallie Expense Report Software - Unsubmit Notifications

Email notifications are sent to approvers when a report has been unsubmitted.

Additional Enhancements & Fixes

    • Analytics Page: New data added to Analytics CSV download, including credit card column, submit date, approved date, and export date.
    • Custom Payment Memo: We have added additional fields for customizing your payment memo on export. Please refer to our Customizing Payment Memo support article for more info.
    • Intacct Users: Stalled sync issue observed in Tallie accounts connected via Console credentials is fixed.
    • New Currency: GTQ Guatemalan Quetzal
    • Fixed various export issues, including page refresh being needed to see export error details, exported reports not being marked as Exported, incorrect expense item status messages when export destinations are split, hidden export errors causing reports to be stuck in Queued, reports being stuck in Queued when QBO token is bad, and various incidents of reports being stuck in export states that were unrelated to TallieConnect or QBO statuses.

Corporate Credit Card Changes Coming Soon

With each Tallie release, we try to improve and enhance our customers’ experience, particularly in areas of critical importance. Soon, we will be releasing some changes to our corporate credit card transaction importing functionality, which may require some planning and adjustment for our customers. We know it’s important for our customers to plan ahead for change, which is why we’re sharing this information now. The end result will be a much improved experience, and our Product Experts will be available to help you if a change is required. Read on for our planned changes:

Introduction of New Bank-Direct Data Transfer Connections

Beginning in early December, we will begin offering a brand new service for corporate credit card management. Tallie will give you the tools to establish an agreement with the issuing bank for each of your credit cards which, once signed, will grant the authority to the bank to provide regular transfer of credit card transaction details for all cardholders directly to Tallie, without any intermediary.

Cards Supported
Upon release, we will be able to support standard data feed formats from American Express, Visa and MasterCard. If you hold a different brand of card, please reach out to our Product Experts to review the potential data formats available.

Early Action Steps
Tallie will not be offering beta access, however you may work with the Product Expert team to get the agreement in place with your bank and begin the data transfer process early. This will allow the Product Expert team to confirm data is being received properly and ensure that you will be able to take advantage of the feature when it is released.

Guaranteed Multi-Card Support
As long as the bank provides identifying details in the transfer file to distinguish between cards, such as last four digits or cardholder name, Tallie will automatically recognize each card’s transactions and route those to the appropriate card.

Planned Sunset of Third Party Aggregation Feeds for Card Accounts with Multiple Cardholders

At the end of the year, we will terminate support for our multi-cardholder credit card feeds from third party card aggregators in favor of our new bank-direct feature. Single card feeds will not be affected by this change.

Troubleshooting Tips
If a multi-cardholder feed experiences an issue between now and our termination date, our Product Experts will offer you one of four interim solutions:

  1. If the card is issued by Chase, American Express, Citi or Silicon Valley Bank, a Product Expert can work with you to establish a “direct connect” OFX connection between Tallie and the bank
  2. You may request individual login credentials from the bank for each card, then connect directly to each of these cards via an aggregated feed
  3. You can create a profile for statement upload for each card, then perform a statement upload procedure on each profile
  4. Begin the process to establish a bank-direct data transfer connection early by reaching out to your Account Manager

For complete documentation, please visit our How to Transition off of Multiple Card Accounts help document.

Connection Transfer for Some Single-Card Accounts

In early November we will be shifting providers for some of our single-cardholder credit card feeds. If your credit card is affected, a Product Expert will be reaching out directly to the administrator of your account to reconnect via a new provider.

Feel free to contact support for any questions related to these alternative card connection options. We can be reached by email at support@usetallie.com, over the phone at +1-888-874-1118 x2 or via live chat in product. Please excuse any prolonged wait times for responses as we are assisting each respective client and thoroughly addressing all concerns.

Critical Information at Your Fingertips: Tallie Expense Report Software 11.1 Release Notes

There’s been a mantra around the Tallie offices in the last few months — we’re on a mission to ensure a seamless expense report software management process for our client administrators. It’s a complex process to keep all your systems in sync, so we strive to keep it simple and functioning smoothly.

With that in mind, Tallie engineers have created a more robust export experience for our software release version 11.1 that provides you with more comprehensive status and historical information than ever before. Additionally, we’ve added a few enhancements to our integrations (particularly Intacct) and will begin sending out invoice and payment confirmation via email with the next billing cycle.

Export Status Tracking

Prior to exporting to any integrated system, Tallie has always run each expense report through a comprehensive validation process, where Tallie validates that all mapped entities on the report are active and properly linked to entities in the accounting system. If errors are found, the report will be placed in error state with specific steps towards remediation indicated. Once validation is complete, Tallie processes the expense data into a format appropriate for transmission to the target system and finally delivers the data. In version 11.1, we are now displaying to our users exactly which expenses and reports are validating or processing at any given time, before being transmitted. We hope this further transparency will help with troubleshooting and understanding of our process.

Tallie Expense Report Softaware - Status Tracking on Report Line Items

The status and destination of each expense is communicated in real time while the expense report is being exported.

What does Queued Status Mean?

If a report remains in queued state for a duration of time, Tallie is waiting to connect to the integrated system. QuickBooks Desktop customers can clear reports from queued state by signing in and connecting TallieConnect.

Expense Export History

Tallie’s powerful multi-destination export logic is capable of breaking apart a report and exporting it to a wide variety of destinations, including payroll files, practice management files, accounting systems and bill pay systems, all with the click of the Export button. With this power comes great responsibility, so we’re now appending an export history record to each individual expense on the export page. This history area will communicate to you where each expense has been exported and the most recent date/time of that export action.

Tallie Expense Report Software - Export History on Report Line Items

Once an expense has been exported, Tallie provides you with the destination and date/time of the export event.

Email Notifications for Subscription Billing

Tallie regularly bills our clients at the close of the month. We’ve made our invoices available in the Billing area of Settings for quite some time, but now we’re also going to send each system administrator an email with the full invoice prior to charging the credit card, and a follow-up receipt once the payment has gone through. We hope this helps you better track your Tallie costs. Please note that if you are on the Enterprise Plan, you may not receive these emails as regularly. Please refer to your signed agreement for your billing cadence.

Tallie Expense Report Software - Payment Receipt Confirmation

Invoice and payment receipt emails containing line item detail will be sent to company administrators.

Additional Feature Enhancements

  • Intacct Users: You can now mass update selection of export enterprise (Export Expenses To) on People page.
  • Intacct Users: We now provide Vendor on the line item when exporting to Accounts Payable.
  • Intacct Users: Your account can now be configured so that managers from Intacct are no longer assigned as approvers during sync. Please contact Support for system configuration.
  • New Currencies Added: MYR Malaysian Ringgit, EGP Egyptian Pound
  • Fixed: Archived expense categories are no longer being auto-mapped on iOS and Android apps.
  • Fixed Some customers had difficulty deleting credit card profiles.

Do these updates improve your process? Send us your thoughts on the latest version of Tallie expense report software – we love your feedback. You can reach out to our Product Expert team by email at support@usetallie.com or by calling 888-874-1118 Ext 2.

Executive Assistant & Better-Than-Ever Integrations: Tallie Expense Report Software 11.0 Release Notes

Tallie is consistently recognized for building the most robust accounting integrations in the industry. In order to maintain this standard, we focused the majority of our efforts on fixing as many imperfections as we could find in our integrations, as well as adding new functionality such as exporting merchant names to Bill.com and fine-tuning our CSV template generator to make them more powerful than ever.

In addition to the enhancements made to integrations and export, the highly anticipated Executive Assistant feature is now live in beta format for select customers! A user can be given the Executive Assistant permission and assigned to manage tasks for one or more executives.

Export corporate credit card merchants to your Vendor list via Bill.com

Knowing where you’ve spent your money is critical to running a business. However, it is often difficult to track expenses by vendor when exporting expense reports in bill format because the vendor is the payee on the bill (the employee or credit card), not the merchant from whom each item was purchased.

In this release, we introduced a new option to include merchant/vendor data in non-reimbursable exports to Bill.com. When exporting corporate card transactions as individual paid bills, admins now have the option to export merchant names to Bill.com Vendors list in addition to the default Credit Card Vendor option. This enables admins and accountants to export both reimbursable and non-reimbursable expenses to Bill.com for approval and attachment purposes without sacrificing the ability to run a report on corporate credit card spend by merchant.

Tallie Expense Report Software Corporate Card Export Settings for Bill.com

Select “Individual Transaction Merchant” on the Export Settings page to use this feature.

 

Tallie Expense Report Software Export Merchants to Bill.com

When configured, each bill will be exported from Tallie to Bill.com payable to the credit card transaction merchant.

[Beta] New Executive Assistant feature gives the ability to manage tasks for one or more executives

A select number of our customers and partners have been asked to beta-test our new Executive Assistant feature. When this feature is activated, users can be granted the executive assistant permission to access and manage other users’ accounts. This access can be configurable to date ranges and a specific subset of permissions.

When acting as an executive assistant, he/she will be able to create expenses, approve reports, export, and manage Tallie settings on behalf of the executive without receiving full access to the executive’s account. Additionally, they will be able to perform these executive assistant functions without needing to sign out of their personal Tallie account.

When a report is submitted to the executive for approval, both executive and delegate will receive a notification and can approve directly from it. The use of the Executive Assistant feature does not affect billing as active user is calculated based on expense owner, rather than the people creating expenses.

Tallie Expense Report Software Executive Assistant Beta Feature

When acting as an executive assistant for another user, you can access both your individual account and the executive’s account using your email and password.

This feature is currently in beta mode and will be released to our general user base after we receive feedback from our early evaluators and make further improvements. If you’re interested in being a part of the beta team, please contact our Product Experts and we will provide you with a beta program overview and help you configure the functionality for the needs of your company.

Product Enhancements & Fixes

  • For our customers with access to multiple Tallie accounts, the styling of the Identity Details page has been updated for more clarity.
  • We have placed more restrictions on syncing a single Tallie account with potentially conflicting accounting and/or bill pay systems.
  • The engine for creating .CSV export files has been updated significantly, with a great deal more options, additional export formats and the ability to search for the data fields.
  • We have added optional enhanced restrictions on Intacct sync, configurable by each dimension.
  • Added multiple foreign currencies: Bangladeshi Taka (BDT), Moldovan Leu (MDL), Botswana Pula (BWP), Namibian Dollar (NAD), Pakistani Rupee (PKR)
  • We’ve addressed the issue where expense mappings appeared to be erased when approvers edit expense reports, but reappeared upon page refresh.
