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.

For the love of accountants: Tallie Expense Report Software 10.10.3 Mini Release Notes

Here at Tallie we consider ourselves the expense report software solution of choice for the accounting profession. This means we’re committed to offering a beautiful user experience that provides a high quality of expense data processing at a fraction of the time. We don’t cut corners on finance teams’ needs. Instead, we go meet with our accountants in their offices, to watch and learn how they use Tallie and how Tallie can be improved to meet their needs. We are indebted to our accounting partners for their brilliant feedback and insight.

The last few releases have featured improvements based on these important relationships, and this mini release is no different. We made some small changes that we believe will help save time in the accounting cycle — we hope these tweaks will save you some time too.

Forward a Receipt from Your Email…and Pick Your Destination!

Let’s say you’re the business owner of three different restaurants and making regular purchases for each or perhaps you’re a staff accountant processing expenses on a regular basis for 10 different outsourced accounting clients. In both cases, because sign in privileges are based on email address, you have the ability to sign in to Tallie on the web or mobile app and switch between a variety of company accounts. However, if you’re forwarding email-based receipts we haven’t had a method to designate a destination company account, so Tallie has sent those email-based receipts to all connected company accounts.

Tallie Expense Report Software Enterprise Selector

When connected to multiple Tallie company accounts you will see each listed on the main selection screen

With this mini release, we’re introducing a new feature that lets you designate a company account destination for each emailed-in receipt. Simply edit the subject line of the email to include the name of the company account and that emailed-in receipt will be sent to that company account only.

Tallie Expense Report Software Enterprise Name in Email

Enter the name of your company in the subject line of your email

If you ever have any questions about which company account you’re currently using, just check the top right corner of your screen while signed in to the Tallie web app, or access the company-switching menu in the mobile apps.

Tallie Expense Report Software Enterprise Name

From within a Tallie company account you can find the exact name in the upper right of your screen

Tallie Expense Report Software Mobile Enterprise Selector

Account-switching functionality is accessed within the mobile apps by tapping the 3-line menu in the upper left of the main screen, then tapping on your name.

Improved Searching by Accounting Codes

In our 10.10.2 Mini Release we allowed for searching in all lists by accounting codes, giving power users more tools for coding their expenses. In this release, we’ve updated the appearance of those drop-down menus so that codes stand out as visual tags, enabling users to choose to focus more on codes or names, depending on their preference.

Tallie Expense Report Software Codes Styled as Tags

Accounting codes are now displayed as tags in Tallie drop-down menus

Are you interested in becoming a Tallie accountant partner? Tallie offers affiliate and reseller programs for accounting firms, plus a wide variety of features to help you manage expense reports in an outsourced accounting practice. For more information, please reach out to our sales team at 800.592.5144. We look forward to hearing from you!

We love our admins! Tallie Expense Report Software 10.10.2 Mini Release Notes

You know that moment when you’ve built something and you can’t wait to show it off? We know the feeling. Sometimes we just can’t wait for a release to deliver you some great new features. Announcing Tallie’s mini-release 10.10.2 featuring admin expense management goodness!

Quick Code Search

Tallie Expense Report Software Search by Code

When coding expenses to list data in Tallie, you can now search by code as well as name.

Was this expense for the Lead Generation sub-department of Marketing or was it for the Direct sub-department of Marketing? In many accounting systems, these departments are represented using codes as well as names, like 410 and 412, for instance. To some of you expense coding goes super quick if you can just type in code 410 and rest assured that the expense is getting coded to Marketing:Lead Generation. Well, now you can! Tallie supports this feature for all lists that feature accounting codes: customers, projects, departments, classes and locations.

Quick Masquerade Access & Switch

Tallie Expense Report Software Masquerade from Menu

Admins can quickly enter masquerade mode by selecting “Begin Masquerade” from their user menu.

Tallie’s masquerade mode is a feature that saves admins a ton of time, by enabling them to act as the user in their account and move expenses through the system. We’ve updated this feature in the mini release to save even more time. Now, you can access masquerade mode from any screen and easily switch between users just by selecting a new person from the header.

Tallie Expense Report Software Enter Masquerade

Once in masquerade mode, an admin may select a user to perform actions on that user’s behalf.

Finally, entering and exiting the mode is as simple as making a selection from the user menu in the upper right of your screen.

Tallie Expense Report Software Switch User

While masquerading as a user, you may switch users or exit masquerade mode.

More Options & Better Performance: Tallie Expense Report Software 10.10 Release Notes

Fresh on the heels of our updated expense report app for iOS and Android, we’re happy to announce the release of Tallie expense report software v10.10. We focused on giving our account administrators a greater range of options for managing Tallie accounts and spent quite a bit of time improving overall Tallie performance. Additionally, we’ve released a brand new status page at status.tallie.com, which you can use to track Tallie uptime. If you’d like to be the first to know about our scheduled maintenance or performance issues, subscribe to updates on that page. Here are some more details on the release:

Drop-Down Menu Performance

When it’s time to code your expenses to classes, projects and other accounting list data, you want the process to be quick and painless. We’ve introduced a few solutions to help you along.

Tallie Expense Report Software Improved Drop Down Menu Performance

Visual Display of Relationships
Let’s say you have multiple layers of projects, departments or locations. We now help you sort through this data by displaying parent-child relationships with visual indentation in the lists.

Search by Parent Project
For our customers who use the Tallie projects list to manage multiple jobs for each of their clients, we’ve built the ability to search for sub-projects by the parent name.

Accounting Code Display
If your company uses codes to reference classes, locations, customers and any other list data, we’ll show those codes to you in the drop down menu as well.

Billable Feature Controller

We originally built Tallie with professional service providers in mind, giving them powerful tools to track expenses against customers and jobs, as well as the flexibility to bill expenses directly back to clients. As it turns out, many of our customers who love Tallie actually don’t have any need for these project billing features. With this release, we’re offering the ability to hide this functionality for all your users, right from the Features page in the Company Preferences area of Tallie Settings.

Tallie Expense Report Software Billable Feature Controller

Integrations Performance

Tallie’s best in class direct integrations with QuickBooks, QuickBooks Online, Bill.com, Intacct and Xero are constantly being tuned and improved. Plus, our recently released scheduled file data transfer integrations for other accounting and practice management systems are getting regular improvements as well. Here are a few of the enhancements we offer with this release:

Tallie Expense Report Software Syncs with Bill.com and QuickBooks Online

Certified Support for Bill.com’s Sync 2.0 for QuickBooks Online
Tallie is the only expense report software offering simultaneous integration with both Bill.com and an accounting system. Bill.com recently upgraded their support for QuickBooks Online, and this release guarantees simultaneous support for customers using the Sync 2.0 between Bill.com and QuickBooks Online. Plus, we’re now ensuring that Tallie always syncs with both QuickBooks Online and Bill.com, even if your Tallie environment is configured to export only to Bill.com.

Fewer Sync Errors
Tallie uses sync errors to communicate when issues need to be addressed in communicating with other systems, but sometimes the sync errors can be extra unnecessary information. We’ve suppressed some of these basic errors so you can enjoy Tallie without the extra chatter.

Improved Processing of Massive Files
We have a few customers who use our file data transfer integration to send tens of thousands of projects to Tallie from their practice management systems. We’ve updated how we work through those files to get better performance than before.

Feature Improvements

In addition, we made a couple of additional functional improvements to Tallie. They include:

  • More improvements were made to the duplicate detection algorithm to make it more accurate
  • We added two new currencies: Vietnamese Dong and Mozambican Meticals
  • We’ve begun a process to help resolve issues with duplicated transactions delivered to Tallie from credit card bank transaction feeds. This release should provide some improvement, with more to come.

Bug Fixes

There were also quite a few small issues resolved in this release. They include:

  • Custom payment memo is applied to item-mapped credit card transactions in Xero, QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop
  • When exporting paid bills to BIll.com, the invoice date now always matches the process date
  • Some customers reported issues in viewing HTML receipts after export to Bill.com. We’ve resolved that issue.
  • Our usage graph that we provide in the Billing area to track your usage to date showed a false spike half way through last month. We’ve resolved that issue as well.

We love to hear from you — even if it’s just to say hi. Let us know how these updates to our expense report software help your team. Reach out to our Product Expert team at support@usetallie.com or by calling 888-874-1118 Ext 2.

Tallie Expense Report Software 10.8 Release Notes

With September just around the corner, kids are heading back to school and accounting busy season is upon us. While you were (hopefully) enjoying the summer sunshine, our team worked diligently to deliver Tallie’s latest and greatest in our 10.8 release. This release includes tremendous new user interface improvements such as viewing all expenses in a new Table View, Select All/Deselect All, maximized expense controls, and more. With this update, we are proud to share with you the newest version of Tallie’s expense report software. Take a look:

Toggle between signature Tile View and new Table View

Our much-anticipated “table view” of expenses is live on the Purchases page! Users can now switch between tile view and table view using the toggles in the upper-right corner of the Purchases page. Compared to our signature tile view, the new table view is designed to offer enhanced visibility by displaying all expense details in a spreadsheet-like table. Users may click on the column headers to sort expenses based on the specific item.

Tallie’s new Table View

tallie-expense-report-software-1

Tallie’s signature Tile View

tallie-expense-report-software-2

Ability to select all/deselect all items on the Purchases page

We replaced “# selected items” with a clickable selection indicator that can be used to select all or deselect all items on the Purchases page.

https://blog.usetallie.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/tallie-expense-report-software-3.png

Drag & drop area is now full page

To make receipts drag and drop easier, we removed the placeholder tile and expanded the drag & drop area to the whole Purchases page. This applies both when the Purchases page is empty and when expenses are present.

https://blog.usetallie.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/tallie-expense-report-software-10.png

All expense controls are now available on each expense report

Previously, to create a mileage expense or import credit card transactions and add to an expense report, users must do so on the Purchases page first. In this release, we made all expense controls available on each expense report, including importing credit card transactions, manual entry, and merge. The controls, joined by those that were already available on the Expense Reports page, such as attach receipts, mass edit and delete expense(s), allow users to more efficiently edit and submit their expenses without the need to navigate between different pages.

How do I do this?
To add a new expense or credit card transaction(s) to a report, simply click on an expense control button in the report header to get started. When more than one expense is highlighted, the Add buttons are replaced by the Mass Edit and Delete buttons. Selecting two mergeable expenses will trigger the Merge button to show. To submit the report, deselect all expense items and the report header will revert back to normal.

https://blog.usetallie.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/tallie-expense-report-software-4.png

https://blog.usetallie.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/tallie-expense-report-software-5.png

Select all/deselect all expenses in an expense report using the Selection Indicator

Similar to what we did on the Purchases page, we replaced the “# Expenses Selected” that used to appear in the report header with a green selection indicator that can be used to select all or deselect all expenses in the expense report.

https://blog.usetallie.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/tallie-expense-report-software-6.png

Receipt drag and drop area enlarged to the entire report

The receipt drag and drop area is now the whole report instead of just the report header. Users may also drop receipts on the expense report list on the left-hand side. To attach receipt to a specific line item, click the “+” button to the right and the file browser will pop up.

https://blog.usetallie.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/tallie-expense-report-software-7.png

Additional tabs for the People and Projects lists so all settings can be seen at a glance

In our previous release, we updated the Projects list to include more information, such as expense privileges and start/end dates for projects, as a step to enhance visibility of project settings overall. We’re taking this further by introducing additional tabs on the People and Project list pages, which are “Mappings” and “Permissions and Approvers” (People list only for now). An admin can click on any one of these preferences and be taken to the edit view for that preference directly. Furthermore, clicking on the column header will sort the list based on that specific preference.

https://blog.usetallie.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/tallie-expense-report-software-8.png

https://blog.usetallie.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/tallie-expense-report-software-9.png

Default items per page increased to 200

We increased the default items per page from 25 to 200 and admins have the options to show 25 or 100 per page if they prefer.

Sort lists based on ID by default

When managing their books, accounting professionals rely heavily on code numbers. All Manage Lists pages aside from Expense Categories are now sorted based on ID/codes/numbers by default. If no code is present, the list will be sorted based on names.

People & Project Overview tabs removed

With the implementation of a more data-rich list view, the Overview tab becomes redundant and serves no additional purpose, so we went ahead and removed them.

We look forward to hearing how these upgrades have made your expense report software experience even easier! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to reach out to our Product Expert team at support@usetallie.com or by calling 888-874-1118 Ext 2.

Tallie Expense Report Software – 10.7 Release Notes

Our focus at Tallie during the summer of 2015 is enhancing our customer’s’ experience. We’re expanding export options, offering enhanced support for credit card account management, and presenting a newly revised duplicate-detection algorithm! Let’s get into the details:

INTACCT
New export option for Intacct – Expense Reports in Time & Expense module

Users whose Intacct subscription includes the Time & Expense Module can now choose to export reimbursables as Expense Reports to Intacct! To configure this, go to Tallie’s Settings area, click on Integration & Sync > Export Settings > Payment export type is: Expense Reports. An additional drop-down will appear for the admin to select a numbering method for expense reports in Intacct. If Intacct already has auto-numbering setup for the enterprise, it will be inherited here. Otherwise, this will default to Tallie numbering.tallie-expense-report-software-release-1

Similar to other export types, Tallie will also export attachments to Intacct Expense Reports, which can be viewed by clicking the paperclip icon highlighted with an orange box in the screenshot below.

tallie-expense-report-software-release-2

 

Now syncing Expense Categories with Intacct Expense Types

Expense Categories list is the newest dimension that can be synced with Intacct. Most Intacct organizations that have the Time & Expense module enabled also have Expense Types enabled in their accounts. Intacct Time & Expense uses Expense Types just as Tallie uses Expense Categories – as a way to provide users with a user-friendly manner of mapping expenses to General Ledger Accounts and Items – though some Intacct organizations choose not to use Expense Types. By syncing Tallie Expense Categories to Intacct Expense Types, we ensure seamless transition of expense report data using the same dimensions in Tallie as you use in Intacct. With our activity-based sync, any new Expense Type created here will be synced to Tallie with its expense account readily-mapped. Likewise, an Expense Category created in Tallie will also be reflected as a new Expense Type in Intacct.

Not only does Tallie sync Expense Categories with Expense Types, but Tallie now also supports specification of offset accounts on a per-category basis. With all other integrations, Tallie exports bills, credit card transactions and/or checks to accounting using one standard liability account per export type. However, individual expense types in Intacct can be assigned unique offset accounts that will override that default setting when expense reports are created in Intacct. To honor this setting, Tallie now has the flexibility of assigning custom offset account as well. This setting can be found in the Expense Category edit area. Please note that this is an Intacct Time & Expense-exclusive setting and all expenses exported to Accounts Payable and Cash Management will continue to be offset by your default payable account(s) as configured in Intacct.

tallie-expense-report-software-release-3

Billable expenses can now be exported to Intacct

If you are billing your customers for time & materials, you will want to be marking expenses in Tallie as billable. As with our other integrations, Tallie is now configured for tracking of billable expenses when integrated with Intacct, and is configured to verify that you have met all the requirements for Intacct billable expenses prior to exporting. Intacct’s requirements are as follows:

  • The Expense Category chosen must be mapped to an Item that is of “Non-Inventory” type. Items of Non-Inventory (Sales Only) or Non-Inventory (Purchases Only) types are not valid for billable expenses.
  • The Item used for the Expense Category must be mapped to an Expense Account in Tallie
  • The expense must be mapped to a Customer, either on the expense item itself or by mapping the expense to a Project that is mapped to a Customer in the Project Details tab.

Please note that, due to limitations on the Intacct side, Tallie cannot indicate billable status on transactions exported to the Cash Management module.

CREDIT CARD IMPROVEMENTS

Credit card subaccount addition/subtraction functionality

As before, once a credit card connection has been made to a bank, the user will be presented with a list of cards accessible by the account. Now, the user can select which of these cards they would like to bring into Tallie. After the initial connection, the user can click the “Add more cards from this account” icon in the credit card profile to connect more cards from the account. Any individual card can be removed from Tallie by clicking the new trash can icon on that card’s line.

tallie-expense-report-software-release-4

tallie-expense-report-software-release-5

Let the Add Card flow run in the background

While in the process of connecting to their bank, users now have the ability to close out the lightbox and return to the Add a Credit Card flow at a later time without losing their spot. Simply click the X in the upper-right corner of the lightbox and the flow will be continue in the background, allowing you to use other features in Tallie while you’re waiting. When you are ready to select the cards to bring into Tallie, click “Finish Setup” to pick up where you left off.

tallie-expense-report-software-release-6

Users can specify Statement Start Date for manually created credit card profiles

With this feature, Tallie can auto-bundle expense reports for manually uploaded transactions based on the statement start date on the card profile. Note that this behaves the same as direct-feed banks – auto-bundling is for non-reimbursable transactions and does not apply retroactively to existing reports.

Tallie will import credits & refunds by default, but omit payments from auto-import

Previously, Tallie excluded all negative transactions from auto-import and users chose to manually import the ones they need. In this release, our auto-import feature is enhanced with the ability to differentiate between vendor credits/refunds and credit card payments/interests, allowing the latter transactions to be accurately identified and omitted from auto-import.

Users can map any manually created expense or receipt photo expense to a corporate credit card, for later credit card transaction reconciliation

In this release, we implemented the ability to associate an expense with a corporate credit card without the expense being sourced from a direct credit card feed or manual upload. Not only will this feature help improve auto-matching between receipts/manual expenses with credit card transactions, but it will allow users to track and submit non-reimbursable expense items even if they are having problems with the bank feed.

To manually map an expense to a corporate credit card, simply select a the card in the expense create/edit lightbox. This feature is also available through Mass Edit, when you select more than one expense and use the pencil icon to edit more than one expense at a time.

tallie-expense-report-software-release-7

Any transactions that are manually mapped to a corporate card will show an orange credit card icon, which is clickable and will display a message to inform the user that this is a mapped expense that can be merged with a true credit card transaction from either direct feed or manual upload. If the admin prefers, he/she may export mapped NR transactions to accounting without reconciliation.

tallie-expense-report-software-release-8

Show original transaction description in manual import and expense edit lightboxes

Occasionally, our credit card data feed cleanup oversimplifies the merchant for a credit card line item. Prior to this release, the full merchant record was only available after importing a transaction. Now, this functionality has been made available to each row of the CC import lightbox, which shows the merchant line data on hover over the credit card icon, and the expense edit window, which displays the full original transaction description on hover over the snippet.

tallie-expense-report-software-release-9

tallie-expense-report-software-release-10

PRODUCT ENHANCEMENTS

Duplicate Detection now learns exclusions from exported data

In addition to identifying expenses as potential duplicates based on their merchants, dates, and amounts, our duplicate detection algorithm is now enhanced with the ability to learn from exported data. This should reduce the rate of false positives and continue to enhance the accuracy of the duplicate detection algorithm.

Ability to hide top-level projects from users

Some accounting systems, like QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop, use one list for Customers and the Jobs associated with those customers which we support in our Projects list, while other accounting systems, like Intacct, use separate lists which we support with our Customers and Projects lists. With our last major release, we allowed the configuration of expense items on a list basis, enabling admins to turn on expense tracking by projects, customers and other lists. In order to better support QuickBooks and other accounting systems, we now offer a configuration for the Projects list which will disable the top-level of projects on a projects lists, effectively turning off Customers tracking.

When Project tracking is enabled in Company Preferences > Features area, admins can choose to hide all parent-level projects for users. This will override Project People settings, meaning, with this box checked, users won’t be able to select the top-level project they’re assigned to.

tallie-expense-report-software-release-11

EXPORT IMPROVEMENTS

Ability to export to “Other Asset” accounts in QuickBooks

For each accounting system, certain restrictions are in place for export on the basis of the GL account associated with the expense category. For QuickBooks Desktop, the QuickBooks product does not allow customer/job or billable mapping on expenses mapped to GL accounts of “Other Asset” type. Because of this limitation, Tallie previously prevented mapping & export to “Other Asset” types.

We now support exporting checks, bills, and corporate card charges to type “Other Asset” accounts in QuickBooks Desktop. We have also introduced validation on export to ensure conformity with QuickBooks Desktop limitations and, if a project is mapped to a line item or the line item is flagged as billable, and appropriate error will be displayed to the user.

tallie-expense-report-software-release-12

Export high quality receipt images to Bill.com

In this release, we upgraded the receipt image quality in the PDF reports attached to Bill.com exports from viewable quality to high quality. In extreme cases where there are hundreds of receipts in one report, the image quality will switch to viewable to comply with Bill.com’s file size limitation.

UI UPDATES

More data-rich Projects list view offers shortcuts to editing a Project

The Projects list view now contains Project number, expense privileges and start/stop dates for projects, enhancing visibility of project settings overall. Additionally, an admin may click on any one of these preferences and be taken to the edit view for that preference directly.

tallie-expense-report-software-release-13

More visibility for accounting codes across Tallie

When “Display System Code” from the connected accounting system is configured on Settings Home page, the system codes for Vendors, Class, Departments, and Locations, etc. will also appear in mapping drop-downs in the Settings area. This will help admins make selections by typing in just a code number in order to select an option from a full list.

tallie-expense-report-software-release-14

We look forward to hearing how these upgrades have made your expense report software experience even easier! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to reach out to our Product Expert team at support@usetallie.com or by calling 888-874-1118 Ext 2.

Tallie Expense Reports – 10.6.9 Release Notes

We’re quickly approaching the second half of 2015, but the Tallie Team hasn’t slowed down one bit. We’re excited to announce some exciting product updates for our customers including enhanced Groups features, updated concatenation functionality for custom CSV exports, and improved “Print to PDF” functionality. Take a peek:

Using Groups to Control Extensive List Data

In addition to expense categories, Tallie administrators can now use Groups to limit which employees can select which Customers, Projects, Classes, Departments and Locations. This update provides further control with ease for our clients with more extensive and complex back-end setups.

How It Works: To add a Project, Class, Location, etc. to a Group, tracking for that list item must first be enabled in Tallie’s Features tab.

If a user is in more than one Group, the access restrictions are accumulative.

Example: If Group A is restricted to Class 1 & Class 2 and Group B is restricted to Class 1 & Class 3, then a person who is in Groups A & B will have access to Classes 1-3.

If a Group does not include the selection of any option for a given list item, then this is considered a non-restriction.

Example: If Group C has no listed classes, then a person who is in Group C will have access to all classes. This non-restriction does not override any restrictions in place for the other groups, so a person who is in Groups A, B & C will still only have access to Classes 1-3.

Projects Resources and Groups for Projects behave together in a subtractive way.

Example: If you’re listed in the Project People tab for Project A and B, and your group grants you access to Project B & C, you effectively only have access to Project B.

tallie-10.6-release-notes-expense-reports1

Groups: Active List Data & Restrictions Viewing Options

From the list view, Tallie administrators can now choose to activate or deactivate the Groups they’ve created (see image). Additionally, the list view now displays all active list data restrictions (i.e. Projects, Departments, Classes, Customers, and Locations).

NOTE: If restriction for a list item is not turned on, the item label will be hidden.

tallie-release-notes-expense-report2

Concatenation for Custom CSV Export

We’ve expanded Tallie’s existing concatenation functionality to now work for both Custom Export and CSV templates.

How it Works: To concatenate values into a single row, simply assign the same column header to more than one row. If you need spaces between the values, insert a row with -None- for the Tallie field and a space as the fixed value, or you may also use symbols as needed.

Example: In the image below, we’re exporting a concatenated field for “Project | Class.” We can do this by applying the same column header to a row for Project Name, a row with “ | “ for the fixed value, and a row for Class. The concatenated field will populate in the first column that uses the column header.

tallie-expense-report-release-notes3

Print to PDF Improvements

Signature Lines are back! Based on customer feedback, we’ve brought back Signature Lines to “Print to PDF” expense reports.

FORBES: Tallie’s Expense Report Software Selected by H&R Block Small Business

As you may have heard, H&R Block recently selected Tallie as the exclusive expense reports solution for its Small Business Services. Tallie’s automated features are set to save H&R Block’s small business clients money, as well as countless hours of time spent on expense management.

On Friday, Ben Kepes wrote an article for Forbes.com explaining why this partnership is so important for small businesses:

“The reality [used to be] that integrating discrete solutions [was] time and resource-heavy and hence impractical for SMBs. If you’re an enterprise you have an IT shop with time to create custom integrations between the different solutions you use – not so for a SMB. The result, therefore, was that SMBs generally chose a monolithic solution that had as much of their functional needs as possible. Anything else was generally resolved with paper-based processes.

The rise of the cloud has changed all that. Enabled by application programming interfaces (APIs), the building blocks that let applications be readily integrated with each other, we now have a paradigm where SMBs can chose a range of different solutions and (theoretically at least) plug them in together as they see fit – so SMBs will take a core cloud accounting product, bolt on POS, HR and expense functionality and create for themselves a highly specific solution.

. . .  H&R Block is now able to offer an automated expense management solution to their customers, and thus end the annual ritual of taking ones filing agent a shoebox full of receipts. Not only will Tallie help the “shoebox syndrome” it also offers quality-assurance functionality – duplicate and error prevention and auto-categorization of expenses for example.”

We’re thrilled to be helping so many small businesses streamline their workflow, prevent expense fraud, and integrate their entire accounting system. To learn more about what makes Tallie and H&R Block Small Business Services so special, read the full article over at Forbes.com
