Submitting receipts just got simpler
Published on October 19, 2023 by Benjamin Piouffle

While hosts need certain details to process your expenses quickly and correctly, we know that filling in details can be time-consuming - particularly if you’re submitting a lot of expenses at once. That’s why we’ve rolled out a new feature which will hopefully save you some precious time.

When you submit an expense to the platform, you will often add a receipt as proof that the transaction occurred. Now, when you add this receipt, the platform will read it and automatically fill in your expense form with the amount, currency, and a suggested description of the expense. This feature is currently being rolled out for expenses submitted to the OSC, OCE and OCF fiscal hosts.

While we’ve been really impressed by how it’s worked so far, we still recommend that you double check any details and figures before submitting to avoid any potential delays in getting paid.

This feature isn’t yet available to other hosts as yet, but it’s something we’re keen to roll out soon.

We’re using an automated document processing solution called Klippa to make this possible. Our policy of sharing information with service providers is outlined in our privacy policy.

I noticed this the other day when I was uploading a receipt! Very nice!

Can it be tweaked to where it doesn’t write over what someone writes in if they are faster than the software? It has tended to overwrite my input with incorrect data.

Hi Chris, it's not supposed to overwrite fields if you have something typed in there. We'll investigate to see what's going on
