What are the methods for adding receipts to your wallet?

[back to top]

Do receipts disappear from your wallet listing once the reimbursement is submitted for approval?

Once the receipts are added to an expense report, they will no longer show in your wallet.

Does the system alert you if you forget to attach something?

The exclamation icon in the receipt column will advise you if there is a receipt missing from an expense.

Does the system stop you from inputting a reimbursement if it is outside of the CSUCI travel policy?

The system will not stop you from inputting reimbursement but it will flag it.  If the reimbursement is outside the CSUCI travel policy, it cannot be reimbursed unless the traveler uploads/attaches a justification for the exception.  In addition, this needs to be approved by the proper supervisor/manager with signature delegation of authority.

Does the system have notification and reminder features when progress is made?

There are expense approval reminder emails.

[back to top]

Can the approver delegate approval if we have created signature authority for others to sign?

An approver can delegate to someone else who has signature delegated authority. 

[back to top]

Does the system allow for more than one approver on a reimbursement or would the second or third have to happen offline?

Only one approver will be necessary to process reimbursements.  If multiple approvers are necessary due to operational business needs, an upload/attachment will be required.
