  2. Provide a notification if the reports tied to a trip exceed the trip budget

    It would be very helpful to flag a report and/or a trip if all the reports tied to a trip exceed the trip budget.

  3. Per diem rates valid for a certain time

    Per diem rates (at least in Europe) change year to year. The tax authorities provide a list of per diem rates for each year. It should be possible to set validity period for a given per diem rate.

    Not sure if I got the functionality right, but it seems that I can set the rate for a certain country (and city) but what happens when the rate changes? Is the new rate valid for the new per diem entries only, or does the rate on existing reports change?

  5. display odometer reading in pdf copy.

    displaying ODO meter readings in PDF is a valid one because it is a requirement for filing mileage with company given cars in US

  6. Group and search by paid through

    Besides the actual expense amount, one of the most important values of an expense is the method of payment, or "paid through" in Zoho. However, we cannot currently search expenses by this, and MOST problematically, we can't group and subtotal by Paid Through. This causes a HUGE problem for the accountant when a report may contain multiple payment methods (corporate cards, personal cards, cash, etc) some of which they MUST reconcile with a CC statement. Currently they would have to get out a calculator and manually figure out which non-reimbursable expenses totaled up to match the check they have to…

  7. Have option to make a category able to EITHER accept a mileage / Km claim or NOT

    We would like to be able to have functionality that switched on or off for a category to allow a mileage (Kms) transport claim - this would mean mileage claims could NOT be made in incorrect categories

  8. shared trips

    Why the trip is not shared between employees who are on the "other travellers" list? Currently they are not able select that given trip for their expenses, they have to open a trip approval separately.

  9. Enable Search after Edit

    After creating a search criteria if one of the search entries is edited, on click of save the search criteria is no longer present. As a result if there are multiple entries in the search criteria, the user is forever recreating a search criteria to modify each item returned in the search list.

  11. add mileage by location option.

    In Canada different provinces have different mileage rates. Right now we can't use the mileage option at all. It would be great to be able to do mileage by location as we can with per diems.

  12. How to make expense on behalf of other employees? Including Reimbursement

    Please provide a provision to make expense enter on behalf of another employee. When we check reimbursement, it should provide a provision to enter the name of the person or the employee id of the person who should get the reimbursed amount.

  16. Improve navigation after Assign Expense to Report

    I am in the list of all expenses in Zoho Expense.
    I am selecting one or multiple expenses, and assign them to an expense report.
    Now, the app navigates automatically to the expense report view.
    This is highly disruptive of the workflow. I need to finish assigning all expenses to reports first, then navigate to a report to check the report. If I need to navigate to a report any time sooner, i can do so.
    The fact that the app also looses the filter criteria when navigating back to the expense page, makes this really cumbersome.
    Please, stop navigating…

  17. Reporting Changes

    For Zoho Expense app on iOS, currently I've to manually add expenses to a new report. This is kind of laborious process.

    While creating a new report, add an option to include expense categories (where the user will select zero or more categories for which the report is applicable)

    Use the categories and start & end dates of the report itself (expenses incurred during the period) and only expenses for the categories selected to include in the report.

    Currently the Shortcut returns everything, the above changes will limit the expenses by date duration & by categories.
