Expense summary and other updates.

So much can happen in a month!

Among other things, we have made it easier to add expenses related to the same trip and sped up the process of claiming mileage reimbursements by suggesting previously used addresses on the form. 🚗

We have also made improvements to our emissions calculation functionality and now display an estimate of emissions based on the vehicle's fuel type.🌱

To learn more about our latest updates, join us for the 'Getting the Most out of Bezala' webinar, which will be held Friday 15th of March at 9 am (in Finnish 🇫🇮) and by following us in Linkedin.

We're pleased to announce that Taru Rouvinen has returned to Bezala as a Product Manager. Taru was a valued member of our team from 2016 to 2022 and will now serve as a vital link between our customers and internal functions, helping to shape the future of Bezala. We're thrilled to have her expertise and experience back on board!

3. Require the names of participants

You can require participants to be marked for certain expenses (i.e. meetings with clients or internal parties).

When this purchase type is selected, a Participants field will appear on the receipt form, which cannot be left empty
