When a company is set up on AutoEntry, only the billing account holder has immediate access to the Expense Reports folder by default. If you want others to be able to access this folder to be able to process expenses, this must be set in their permissions.

Expenses permission types


A submitter can:

  • Upload expenses

  • Add expenses to Expense Reports

  • Submit an expense for approval to an approver

Submitters can't see any expenses uploaded by other users. A Submitter's expenses aren't visible by an Approver or Admin user until added to an Expense Report and submitted for approval.


Becomes available to select as an Expenses Approver in the user settings who then approve or reject Expense Reports submitted to them by submitters.

Edit Before Approval

This is an added level to the Approver where submitted reports can be edited by the approver before they approve it.


An admin can:
