Hints and Tips

  • BI Managers are assigned to claimants in departments and can view data on those claimants (not on transactions charged to the department)
  • Only one BI Manager can be set up per department and are assigned at department level (there is no hierarchy in eExpenses to link departments to divisions or subdivisions)
  • The report will show claims that have been sent for payment and the date of each approval step along with the name of the approver at each step
  • All approvals made by an approver will show on this report however the auto-approved steps and dates will not appear in this report as this is out of scope
  • Column C (Claim Key) is the cross reference for Financials
