Travel and Expense Guide Notes


Entering a Speedtype 

Using the "accounting defaults" button will pre-populate all new lines with the speedtype entered. Once a default speedtype is entered, then a user may go into any expense line to change an account code or manipulate the speedtype. Click the editing icon [ General Information ] from the Expense Summary Page to access the "accounting defaults."

Changing a Payee

Report Description: Keeping it Real

Use a first initial| last name | brief description sequence in your "Report Description" line.  This generates critical information on your monthly statement and saves a reviewer the effort of looking up the EMPLID and business purpose of the traveler. Avoid creating vague entries like "expense report."
