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.

Time to upgrade! Tallie Expense Report App v3.3 Released for Android & iOS

Celebrate the season with updated Tallie apps just in time for the holidays! Our new expense report app for Android and iOS features enhanced stability in low connectivity environments, manual select-to-merge features and the option to share to Tallie from your camera library. Go ahead and upgrade your app*, you deserve it.

*Depending on your operating system there may be a delay in availability, so please be on the look out over the next week or so.

Select-to-Merge Expenses in the App

Let’s say you’ve got a receipt and a matching credit card charge that you would like to merge into one expense? Simply select both expenses by tapping on the circular icon on the left side of the screen, then tap to merge. In the iOS app, this option will appear on the bottom of your screen. In the Android app, it will either appear in the header or the overflow menu, depending on your screen width.

Select to merge functionality in the Tallie expense report app for iOS

Selecting more than one expense in the iOS app causes the expense functions to appear on the bottom of the screen. These include, select all, merge, move to report, and delete.

 

Select to merge in the Tallie expense report app for Android

In narrower Android screens, the merge function appears in the overflow menu.

 

Share Images to the Tallie Expense Report App

We’ve configured Tallie to work with the share functions of both iOS and Android camera libraries. On both iOS and Android it’s quick and easy to access the camera from the lock screen. Now, you can take receipt photos with your basic phone or tablet camera as you incur them, then batch import them into Tallie using the share functionality.

Share to Tallie from your iPhone or iPad…

Share receipts from the iOS camera to the Tallie Expense Report App

From your camera roll, select multiple images, tap the Tallie icon, then select the destination expense report.

Share to Tallie from your Android phone or tablet…

Share receipts from your Android camera to the Tallie Expense Report App

From your camera library, select your images, then tap the share icon. Select Tallie from the app list, then select the destination expense report.

Bug fixes!

Each time you update your apps you might notice notes from developers that tell you about bug fixes. What do we mean by that? Well, a bug is an issue with a piece of software that prevents the software from completing an intended function. We conduct extensive testing here at Tallie before we release updates to our expense report software and expense report apps, but thanks to some wonderful feedback from our customers, we’ve found a few ways that we can improve. Here’s a high level list of the bugs we fixed with this update:

  • Reliability and stability of the apps has been greatly improved when connectivity is low
  • Some customers experienced long delay in loading the app
  • Some customers experienced long delays in searching for results in project lists
  • Some customers who used long names for their project, department, location, class or customer lists were not able to see the full name

Happy holidays from Tallie!

We love your feedback, because it helps us improve the experience for everyone. Let us know how these updates to our expense report app experience help your workflow. Reach out to our Product Expert team at support@usetallie.com or by calling 888-874-1118 Ext 2.

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.

Expense Report Software User Rejected Duplicates

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.

Expense Report Software Duplicate Decision Override

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.

Learn more about how Tallie develops expense report software integrations.

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.

Expense Report Software Credit Card Statement

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.

Expense Report Software Custom Memo for Items
