Along with the direct integrations Expensify supports, there's also an option to integrate with other accounting solutions via a flat-file import.
When you select one of these accounting packages on the Accounting Inbox task, Expensify will automatically create and add a relevant Export Template for you. The template will allow you to quickly and easily transfer report data to your accounting package.
