Set up periods and reminders for your mileage reports

Do you forget to submit your mileage report and would like to be reminded?

You can set a custom reporting period, which makes it easier to create mileage reports with the correct time frame for your deductions and reimbursement. You can set a yearly, quarterly, monthly, biweekly/fortnightly, weekly or daily reporting period. You can also choose to be notified via email when you need to create a report.

 If you are part of a Team, the Team admin can set a reporting period and a reminder for the workplace and all members will be notified via email when they need to create a report. 

Once you’ve set a reporting period, you’ll be able to select and use it from the date selector drop-down menu when creating a report.

You can see the set reporting period from the settings menu.

Common Questions

Q: How can I change my reporting period?

You can change your reporting period by going to Settings -> Reporting Periods, and clicking on the workplace with a set reporting period. You can edit the time period, as well as your preference for email reminders. You can also change them from within the report.

Q: In what format can I get my mileage report?

You can download your mileage report as a PDF or Excel file.

Q: It's the 1st of the month and I haven't received my email reminder! What's wrong?

For all reports, we send out the notification on the first work day after the new period begins. For example, if the 1st of the month is on a Sunday and you get monthly reminders, you will receive your email report reminder the next day, on the Monday.
