Where to find expense report in MLS?

Postby OS1802 » Sun Jan 20, 2013 10:36 am

I cut a check and failed to print the Expense Report associated with that check. I have looked all over MLS and am unable to locate where I might be able to find and print that expense report. (The report I'm looking for is the one filed with all the check stubs and receipts)

I know where to locate the individual check expenses, but not the actual expense report.

Is it possible to print this report after the fact?

Thanks!

No. You get one chance to print that report; if you decline that offer, you can never print it again. But the good news is that this particular report is not essential. The bishop can put his signature on the individual expense authorization forms.

What is the rationale of not being able to print the report again? I had a report not print any details so I had the Bishop sign that with a notation, but I don't think that's a proper method of recording expenses.

I'm sure it's just a matter of the product managers deciding that the benefits would not be worth the cost. Allowing the report to be printed again would require that a permanent data organization be added for a batch of expenses; now that grouping of expenses only exists temporarily while you are working on the batch, and so it doesn't have to be stored.

As I mentioned earlier, this report is not essential; it's merely a convenience if you'd like to use it. No audit step asks for this particular form; the only requirement is that the bishop authorizes each expense with his signature.

Actually, any form attached to the expense documentation that is then signed by the bishop to show his authorization is just fine.
