When posting an Expense Report into ByDesign from Concur, the ByDesign Expense Category is only determined correctly for Concur Hotel Expenses type. All other Expense Types are mapping to the category "Other Expenses".
SAP Business ByDesign
Reproducing the Issue
Go to the Work Center Project Management.
- Select the Not Invoiced Time and Expenses view.
- Select the Project ABC.
- Click Edit Time and Expenses.
- Click Quantity and Expense Detail" in the bottom of the screen.
- Check the row for the Project Task ABC-D. You will see that mostly of the Expenses Category are "Other Expenses", and the ones which are not "Other Expenses" are appearing as "Lodging".
Currently for Concur Integration scenario with ByD we have mapping the description of the External Expense Types only, and not the Expense Category Code.
This functionality is currently not available and the Expense Category will be either 1-Lodging or 4-Other Expenses. In case you would like to change the same, you can post a requirement in our Ideas Forum. Based on priority of release, it will be decided whether it can be picked and when it can be developed and deployed.
