Prerequisites

  • You must be an admin.

  • You must be part of the Expense Approver group.

  • Your team member submits the expense on Oyster (not the third party expense tool, Rydoo).

Steps

  1. Log into the Oyster Platform.

  2. Click on People and then select Expenses.

  3. You will see a tabular view of all the submitted expenses. You can search or filter by team members or expense name, and sort by the status as well.

  4. Click on the particular expense to review details including the receipts and amounts.

  5. Once you are satisfied, click Approve to approve the expense.
    Note: expenses must be approved by your company before Oyster can process the reimbursement.

    TIP: You can save time by bulk approving multiple expenses. Simply select all the expenses you want to approve by clicking on the check boxes next to each line item, and an option to approve them in one go will appear at the bottom.

You have two options:
