Supercharged Duplicate Detection & Automated Data Transfer: Tallie Expense Report Software 10.9 Release Notes

It’s getting well into fall and we’re dreaming of changing leaves, hot chocolate by fireplaces and the upcoming holidays. In the spirit of sharing the warm fuzzies, we’ve just released some major new developments that will make accountants’ hearts sing. Take a look at some of the highlights from the newest version of Tallie’s expense report software and let us know what you think!

Expanded & Enhanced Duplicate Management Tools

After speaking with many of our clients, we discovered that there were a few key areas where we could provide meaningful enhancements to your experience with managing duplicate expenses.

Review All Duplicates at Once
Gone are the days where you must search the page for any orange Possible Duplicates flag. Clicking on one duplicate pair will bring up a lightbox that will allow you to review all duplicate pairs on the page sequentially, without having to leave that view.

Expense report software duplicate detection

Differentiate Between User-Rejected Pairs and User-Ignored Pairs
Approvers and finance teams have historically been notified of possible duplicate pairs, no matter whether the original submitter ignored the flag or dismissed the flag. In order to cut down on noise and provide an additional layer of meaningful visibility, approvers and admins will now see a gray “Not Duplicates” flag which indicates when the submitter rejected a possible duplicate pair. The traditional orange “Possible Duplicates” flag will remain in place whenever a submitter has chosen to ignore the flag and submit anyway.

Duplicate Resolution Rights Granted to Approvers and Administrators
In the past, approvers and finance teams could only review expenses flagged as duplicates, but could not resolve them. This created a process requiring an expense report rejection, a delay for the submitter to resolve the issue, then a restart of the approval process. In order to cut out unnecessary delays, approvers can now merge expenses they believe to be duplicates and administrators can merge or delete duplicates. Furthermore, if the duplicate flag was rejected by the original submitter (see section above), approvers and administrators can override that decision.

Now Offering Automated Data Transfer for ANY System

We’ve often gotten requests during implementation for custom integrations with on-premise solutions like Microsoft Dynamics GP, Oracle or practice management systems. We’re thrilled to announce that this release includes the capability to establish an automated data transfer process between Tallie and any non-integrated system via sFTP scripted file transfer.

Expense Report Software File Upload Templates

On the Tallie side, the setup couldn’t be easier. Any account can be configured to receive data via sFTP simply by flipping a switch. Once sFTP is activated, Tallie provides you with standardized data template files as well as a custom username/password combination for Tallie’s sFTP server. You can then implement a scripting process in your system to pull data out in a format compatible with the template files and deliver updates to Tallie on a regular basis.

If you are interested in configuring your system to for automated data transfer with Tallie, please reach out to our Product Experts at support@usetallie.com who can guide you through the process or connect you with a VAR who is experienced with scripting data retrieval from your system.

Additional Product Updates

Streamlined Expense Report Header
Many of you take advantage of our corporate credit card auto-bundling feature, which offers automated expense report creation per credit card per statement. We’ve updated the naming convention for those reports so they’re easier to organize and compare. Plus, we’ve added a “sticky” header for all expense reports, so the title and control functions are visible as you scroll.

Brand New TallieConnect for QuickBooks for Windows Customers
TallieConnect is our proprietary syncing engine that allows for instant data transfer between Tallie and QuickBooks for Windows. The newest version brings a lot of great features including: Hosted Environment mode, instant activity-based sync back to Tallie when a change is made in QuickBooks (provided TallieConnect is running), ability to auto-upgrade TallieConnect versions in the future, and much more. Please download and install the most recent version from your Settings home page as soon as possible.

Expense Report Software Updated QuickBooks Sync Engine

Custom Memo Support for Items
Typically, payment memos on bills, checks and credit card charges are populated with Item Description, a field that is synced between Tallie and your accounting or bill pay system. However, we’ve received many requests to be able to customize the memo based on the specific transaction. We now offer customization on both the individual Item and the Export Settings pages. This feature is compatible with every Tallie integration, which includes QuickBooks for Windows, QuickBooks Online, Xero, Bill.com and Intacct.
