Expensify gives you the option to create and track custom units for any value of your choosing.
Creating a New Custom Unit
To create or change a custom unit, click the settings icon in the upper left corner of the screen > Account settings > Preferences and scroll down to "Custom Unit Tracking."
Using a Custom Unit
You can use your custom units by manually creating a new expense from the web or mobile app.
- Select "New Expense"
- Enter the name of the custom unit in the "Merchant" field
- Enter the amount of units that you want to track in the "Total" field
- Click "Save" to create the expense
For example: if you want to track 8 hours using your "Hour" unit, enter "Hour" as the Merchant name and "8" as the total.
The value that you've set up for this unit will automatically be applied to the number that you enter in the "Total" field for the expense. We'll also create a comment noting the custom unit rate:
