How do I attach receipts to Expenses on the mobile app?

Attaching receipt images to your Expenses using the mobile App is a great way to keep your paperwork organized. You can finally wave goodbye to the overflowing shoebox of receipts under your bed! If you’re out in the field and quickly need to log an Expense, you’re able to snap an image of the receipt using the mobile App and attach that to the relevant Expense. You can also use a photo already stored on your phone.
