How does Abacus check for duplicates?
Abacus has logic in place that helps prevent duplicate expense submission. In cases where employees go on to accidentally submit duplicates, we flag those expenses for managers and admins so that they can catch mistakes before expenses are approved.
Dupe warnings for employees
1. If the last expense you created has the same amount, date, note, category, vendor, you are prevented from submitting the expense:
2. If expense is within +/- 1 day, same amount, employee, and vendor, you are warned that it may be a dupe, but you may proceed with submitting the expense:
3. If the amount you’re submitting is the same as a corporate card expense that is in the account, we’ll warn you. (corporate cards only)
Dupe warnings for admins/managers
- If expense is within +/- 1 day, same amount, employee, vendor, we show a warning on the expense for the admin
