Question on reimbursement

Once expenses have been approved and notifications received by email, how can we track the next steps ie the payment? Rather than being in the dark and waiting, is there a system we can connect to check if the status is OK, if it has been transferred for payment and when payment should occur?

With the previous system, I learned it's better to monitor, rather than learning few weeks later that's the reimbursement is stuck somewhere for some erasons, but nobody was contacting you to fix it as anyway it's our own money which is outside, so it's our problem.

Thanks for the answer, I think it's a very standard request and I've seen nothing in the training and the Q&A materials/ ERIC

    Hi Eric,

    the CfTE system can be configured in a way that an e-mail is sent to the traveler if the status of an expense report is set to "Reimbursed".

    When the status "Reimbursed" is set, depends on the integration scenario used.

    Example: If the scenario "FI Vendor Payment" is chosen and also a confirmation is expected, the status change would be executed after the payment has been triggered.

    That's all the information available for a traveler.

    Best Regards,

    The expense report displays a status. For example, pending approval, released for reimbursement, etc. The Claiming Expenses help document in your Cloud for T&E system explains the various statuses that will display.
