Submitting an Expense Report in AutoEntry - Employee Actions (Submitter)

March 11, 2022

Employee Actions (Submitter) 

As an employee of our Spondoo client looking to be reimbursed for your business expenses, your AutoEntry account will be set up as a Submitter. Your role allows you to upload expenses at any time throughout the month. Your employer should let you know the deadlines for you to submit these receipts for approval – this is typically done monthly. 

Your required actions to be reimbursed 

To start, you should ensure that you have accepted your activation email to AutoEntry and created your login details. You can then access AutoEntry via your web browser or by downloading the app to your phone. 

Once you are set up, follow the steps below to be reimbursed for your out-of-pocket expenses. 

Using a web browser to submit a report 

Follow the following steps when using a web browser: 

  • Upload the receipt or invoice to AutoEntry. To upload a document, click the + Upload button in the expense folder.
