7
Navigating to the Travel and Expenses Portal
The Travel and Expenses portal can be accessed from the About Me section of the
Navigator, or from the About Me icon on the Home Page.
8
Using the Travel and Expenses Portal
The Travel and Expenses portal is your starting point for all activities related to expense
reports and cash advances.
• The portal displays expense activities in three tiles: Expense Items, Expense Reports,
and Cash Advances.
• Click on a link in a tile to view corresponding information in the lower region of the
form. For example, quickly access in progress expense reports to pick up where you
left off.
9
Bank Account Setup
Note: You must enter your bank account information in the
Financial Management before entering your first expense report.
This is a one-time setup required for reimbursement.
Bank information is completely secure and not visible to other
users of the system.
10
Bank Account Setup (continued)
To enter bank account information:
• Navigate to the Travel and Expenses portal
• Click the “Manage Bank Accounts” link from the Task menu
• Click the + button to enter a new bank account
• Enter the required fields and click the Save and Close button
11
Delegates
If there are individuals who routinely enter expense reports on your behalf, you must
setup these individuals as Delegates within the system. To add a delegate:
•
•
Navigate to the Travel and Expenses portal
Click the “Manage Delegates” link from the Task menu
•
Click the + button to enter a new delegate
•
Enter the name of the Delegate and then click the Save and Close button
13
Enter Expense Reports
After entering your bank information, you are ready to begin entering expense reports.
15
Enter Expenses via Spreadsheet
You can also enter expense items in an Excel spreadsheet template and then import
expense items into the system. The copy/paste feature in Excel may save you time when
entering expense reports with many items. However, keep in mind that you cannot add
attachments to expense items in the spreadsheet, and will need to attach receipts to
expenses after they have been imported.
Once complete, click the Upload Expense
Items button on the Create Expense Items tab to
import the expense items into the system.
17
Enter Expenses from the Mobile App
You can also enter expense reports from your mobile device. This provides you additional
flexibility to enter expense reports whenever it is convenient for you. However, there are a
few things to keep in mind when entering mobile expenses.
•
The mobile app does not have required fields. Therefore,
fields that may be required in the system can be left blank in
the app. You will not be able to submit expense reports where
these fields have been left blank.
•
The mobile app does not display all of the fields that are
available in the system. In some cases these fields may be
required, which will prevent you from submitting the expense
report.
•
The best use of the mobile app is to capture the basic details
of expenses as they are incurred, then upload them into the
system where you can complete and submit the report.
