The Expenses section of the policy editor is where you will create the settings that users reporting on the policy will use when creating expenses. This includes time-based expenses, mileage/GPS expenses, as well as the applicable output currency for any reports.


Setting and Creating Time-Based Expenses 

Time expenses can be created from both the web and the mobile app. For companies, the default hourly rate can be set in the policy settings. For individuals, the default hourly rate can be set in the personal settings.

Setting the Default Hourly Rate

Companies can set the default hourly rate in the “Mileage and Time” section of the policy settings. To get there, go to Admin > Policies > [Policy Name] > Expenses and scroll down to Time. Note: This rate can be overridden by the user.

Individuals can set their default hourly rate in their personal settings. To get there, go to the blue settings icon in the upper right hand corner of the screen > Personal Settings > Preferences then scroll to Time.
