Below are a few examples of how Card Expense Export workflows can be used:
The following set-up will send an approval request to Mark Brown to check once all fields have been completed on the transaction. Mark Brown will need to approve the transaction before the transaction will be exported to the accounting software.
In the following example, once all fields have been completed for a transaction that is from the Office Equipment budget, is made by the employee James McDaniel and the transaction amount is over $100; this will need to go through a two-step approval process before it is exported to the accounting software. First, the approval will go to Mark Brown; if Mark Brown approves the budget, it will then go to Joseph Ramos for the final approval before the transaction will be exported.
