How to request an external expense?
Click on 'Resource not on Learnerbly?' in the navigation bar (or follow this link 🔗 ) and then select 'Request an External Expense'
2. Enter the details of your external spend
Enter information about your expense in the form so that your manager or admin understands what the expense referred to.
3. Share a note with your Manager
Your manager will confirm the value of the expense on your learning budget to ensure that it has been seen by them.
4. Submit your request
When you're ready, submit your external expense. Once your manager has confirmed the expense, it cannot be edited or canceled, the process works very similarly to the existing request flow!
5. Manager confirmation
Your manager will receive a notification to confirm the external spending. If it's approved, you'll receive an email letting you know that the expense has been permanently applied to your learning budget.
6. Purchasing the resource yourself
If your external request has been approved, you will need to make the purchase yourself outside of Learnerbly.
7. Marking the request as purchased
After purchasing a request, you can verify the expense on your Learnerbly account by accessing the "Your Requests" section of the app. There, you can view the complete list of your requests and their current status. To mark the requested expense as complete, simply click the green "Mark as expensed" button.
