Creating an Expense Report as an Employee

1. To create an expense report, employees must log in to their Docyt account and go to the 'Expense Management' menu. They can select 'Expense Reports' from the drop-down list from there.

2. Click the blue plus icon at the top right corner on the' My Expense' page. Alternatively, employees can choose the blue button 'Add Employee Expense' to include expenses requiring employer reimbursement.

3. In the new window that opens up, employees can either upload their expense receipts or manually enter the details if the receipt is not available for submission to employers. Once the employee has entered and confirmed all the required details, they must click the blue 'Save & Close' button to generate their expense report.

Docyt offers the following methods for adding expense details:

  • Drag and Drop Receipt: With this feature, employees can effortlessly drag and drop their receipt into the designated window. Docyt will automatically extract all the necessary data from the receipt and populate the expense report with the relevant information. Employees can fill in the details manually if the data extraction is unsuccessful.

  • Manual Entry: If employees do not have a receipt or it is not available yet, they can manually input the following information:

    • Category: Select the appropriate category for the expense from the list of available options.
    • Amount: Enter the total amount of money spent on the expense.
    • Payment Date: Specify the date on which the payment was made.
    • Note: Employees can include any additional notes or comments about the expense in this field. Feel free to provide any relevant information or explanations here.
  • Emailing Expense Receipt: Employees can email their expense details to the designated email address on the top left side of the expense page. To do this, click on the icon next to the email address to copy it, as shown in the figure below. Once the employee has composed and sent the email to this address, the content of the email will appear under the 'Uploaded' tab within a few seconds. If necessary, employees can make any corrections to the data fields.

4. Employees can find their newly created report in the 'Uploaded' tab after creating their expense report. It is important to note that, at this point, the expense report has not yet been submitted for reimbursement to employers.

4. As an employee, you can sit back and relax because the next steps are in the hands of your employer. They will verify your expense report and then pay the amount mentioned in the report.


Customizing Personal Settings as an Employee

Employees can customize their settings, including their name, phone number, bank account, and address. By adjusting these settings, employees can ensure that their expense reports are personalized and accurate.

  1. To access the 'Settings' menu, locate the green gear icon on the left panel of the Expense Report page and click on it. This icon represents 'Settings' and will open a page where employees can customize their personal preferences.
  2. To update personal information, employees must navigate to the 'Personal Info' menu in the left-hand navigation of the Settings page. From there, click on the blue 'Edit' link. Employees can easily update their name, email address, phone number, and address.

  3. Employees can also access the 'Bank Account' menu to view their bank account information for receiving employer reimbursements through the ACH system. If an employee needs to change their bank account, they can click on the 'Disconnect Bank Account' option and proceed to add a new bank account.
  4. Click the 'Connect Bank Account' button to add a new bank account.
  5. To connect a bank account, Docyt utilizes Plaid service. Click the 'Continue' button, choose your bank from the list, and follow the instructions. This secure process ensures a seamless connection and allows easy reimbursement through the ACH system.

Mobile App Usage: We highly recommend downloading and utilizing the Docyt mobile app for convenient expense receipt scanning and submission.
