Using the Admin Overview Page

If you've been given the Admin Overview permission, this page will be defaulted as the page you land on upon signing in.

The content on the Admin Overview page is organized by expense report state: UnsubmittedSubmitted, and Approved. Each report state can be accessed via the blue links in the top-right corner.

Unsubmitted Page

All unsubmitted expense reports with at least one expense are displayed on this page. Click the expense report title to be taken to the report owner's Expense Reports page while masquerading as them.

From there, you'll be able to view and edit expense line item details.

Back on the Unsubmitted page, click at least one report to activate the Remind Users and Submit for Approval buttons.

The Remind Users button sends reminders to report owners asking to submit their expenses. The Submit for Approval button submits certain expenses for approval. 

The corporate cardreimbursable, and total amounts, all update in real-time. This means new reports could show up or move along and the totals will update without refreshing the page.

Another helpful label is the Missing Info label. This is applied to reports blocked from submission on the Admin Overview page due to missing information such as expense date, expense amount, or expense category. 

Submitted Page

Each report on this page shows the current approver. If there are multiple approvers, hover over Multiple Approvers to see their names.

Click at least one report to activate the Remind Approvers and Approve for Export buttons. The reminders sent from this page are the same as usual approval reminders, with the ability to approve and reject from email.

The Approve for Export marks approval as complete and sends the report directly to the Export page. 

Approved Page

On this page, you'll find all reports ready for export, along with a button to take you to the Export page where you can export the reports. 

Using the Admin Overview page with a subset of Admin rights

Users can use Admin Overview without having all of the administrator rights, such as full admin and export. 

Without being a full admin, users lose the ability to click on individual expense reports and masquerading as the report owner. They will will be able to select expense reports and submit or approve on the report owners or approvers' behalf.

The export permission controls the availability of the "View Reports on Export Page" button and whether or not at Admin Overview user can click on an approved report to view its details.
