SpendControl release notes

Release July 2nd '24 (v3.12.0)


Smart description filled by OCR

We can automatically fill the description field with OCR data:

Invoice number
Purchase date
Due date

So we can configure the description as "merchant - invoice number", resulting in "Ziggo Netherlands B.V. - 517291428-00" as description. You can always manually edit the automatically created description yourself. Contact us via the chat if you want this feature so we can configure this for you.

Automatic booking for invoices

We now support automatically booking invoices. Invoices can automatically be booked if all mandatory fields are filled in and the "to split" amount is zero. This feature is especially useful if you save your booking lines before approval. This feature then automatically books it once fully approved. Contact us via the chat if you want to use automatic booking.

Datev Unternehmen Online Integration

We now integrate with Datev Unternehmen Online. This article explains how you can connect. Contact us via the chat if you are interested in this integration.

In-app updates

We have added a new icon on the top right (megaphone), where we will communicate new new product improvements. For major updates that have significant impact on your way of working, we will show a banner on the top of your screen so you will never miss important updates from now on.

Full list of product improvements

For all users
