Expense Management Feature Highlight: Manual Credit Card Upload

To automatically import your transactions, Tallie is built to directly connect with 500+ credit card brands – and that number continues to grow. We constantly strive to keep pace with the rapidly expanding credit card industry, though acknowledge that our customers may have credit cards that we don’t yet directly connect with. Because of this, we’ve recently launched a new Manually Add Account feature to enable credit card transaction file uploading. It’s a feature so highly requested, we felt compelled to create an intuitive user experience that streamlines the upload process, even if our direct connection is currently unavailable.

You may wonder how a transaction file upload feature could be an intuitive feature. It’s a simple upload function, right? Wrong! Tallie is the only expense management software product to offer this type of upload. We listened to our users’ requests and challenged our engineering and design teams to understand the “why” behind it all. The result was powerful.

Tallie chose to create a new way of connecting, storing, and remembering your credit card preferences. We know that most businesses are not expensing random charges from a variety of cards; most companies routinely use a calculated, purposeful process for handling credit card expenses. We believe that whether a company imports credit cards via direct integration or a manual file import, the opportunity to always reference charges to cards should always be available.

Now, in Tallie, you can create and store a credit card profile for both your directly integrated credit cards and those credit cards that require manual file transaction upload.

Manually Upload Your Credit Card Statement Data in 5 Easy Steps

Step 1: Log into your Tallie Account and click “Credit Cards”

Step 2: Select “Manually Add Account”

Step 3: A box will pop up, asking you to enter your bank. If your bank account isn’t listed, select “Other Issuing Bank”tallie-credit-card-upload-expense-management-software

Step 4: Now, you’ll be prompted to enter a name for the account. Select whether the charges from the account are reimbursable or non-reimbursable, and which in currency the transactions exist.

Step 5: After entering your information, Tallie will ask if everything looks alright to you, and whether or not the transactions are purchases. Next, a success window will appear. Simply drag and drop your charges into the window. After it processes, select the transactions you’d like to appear as Purchases and click “Import.” That’s it – you’re done!

Tips & Tricks for the ‘Manually Add Account’ Feature

1. Easily drag and drop transactions from your desktop into your Tallie account.
2. You can now import older charges or mass upload reimbursable transactions.
3. As a quick fix for special cases, use this feature to quickly import credit card charges and then delete the credit card immediately afterwards.

As one of our highly requested updates, Tallie’s new credit card upload feature is proving to be quite a hit. If you have any additional questions regarding this tool or expense management you can visit the Tallie Support site.

Tallie’s 9.14 Expense Management Release News!

Tallie’s 9.14 release features exciting updates that will make the expense management process that much easier. Read up on the greatest highlights in this round of Tallie’s business software updates.

1. A Redesigned Lightbox 

Our Development Team built a flurry of new features to enhance the Purchases page in Tallie. One of the most notable updates includes a redesigned lightbox (see below) for added context and control when navigating the Purchases page.

Tallie-purchases-business-software

In this redesigned lightbox, Tallie users can perform the following functions at the click of an icon:

  • Detach receipts into separate expenses (existing feature)

  • Add receipts onto an expense by clicking the paperclip icon (existing feature)

  • Add multiple receipts by dragging the additions onto an existing receipt image. (new 9.14 feature)

These three updates provide increased ease of control over expense reimbursement, resulting in maximized flexibility for your company’s accounting workflow.

2. Tack on Multiple Receipts

Tallie users can now add multiple receipts – such as those mile long hotel receipts – to the same expense, including the lengthy ones. Simply add additional pictures to the same expense and you’re done.

Developer note: Merging two duplicate purchases with different receipt images will result in both being kept. This ensures that all data is kept and Tallie is not deleting or hiding any receipts that the user may want to keep. Users can manually remove or delete extra receipts if desired.

3. View Multiple Pages of PDFs

Great news – prior to the 9.14 release, users could only view the first page of a PDF receipt. Now, Tallie shows all pages of an uploaded multi-page PDF, adding further control and visibility to your accounting workflow.

4. Added Bill.com Support for Corporate Credit Card Charges

One of the most requested enhancements in Tallie’s 9.14 release is the new settings and functionality for Tallie’s Bill.com integration. Users will now be able to import Non-Reimbursable Credit Card charges into Bill.com. A number of new features were introduced to accomplish this task:

  • “Combine Multiple Charges into one Bill.” If selected, Credit Card charges will export into Bill.com as one bill. When you export an expense report with ten Credit Card charges, you’ll get one bill with each charge as a line item.

  • “Export Each Charge as a Separate Bill”  With this set, each Credit Card charge will appear as a separate bill. In other words, if you export an expense report with ten Credit Card charges, you’ll see ten new bills in Bill.com.

  • “Mark Bills as Paid” Unless otherwise preferred, each bill that’s imported into Bill.com will be imported as “Paid” via the credit card account you assign in Tallie. This will save clients tremendous amounts of time prepping the imported charges for export out to the accounting system.

These exciting new features uphold Tallie’s commitment to carving the path of what defines a premier expense management product. Pair this commitment with deep integration with QuickBooks, Bill.com, and SmartVault, and the solution is clear. Along with our other industry partners, — RootWorks, Right Networks, and BMRG — Tallie’s business software completes a powerful paperless and highly efficient client accounting ecosystem. We hope you find these updates to be helpful. Enjoy!
