Hey everyone, just popping in, as it's now a year on from our last update here (now in Feb 2019). The main focus for the team who also look after billable expenses has been the development and roll-out of new invoicing (available to those in AU, NZ, US and Singapore right now). Files themselves haven't been worked into the first iteration.

With the way files currently work, a file is attached to a transaction and assigning a billable expense is a separate action within the transaction. As there's no direct association between the file and billable expense, allowing pass through of files would require work between the original transaction and subsequent invoice - Not something we have in the pipeline just for now, however as we continue to develop iteratively on new invoicing it's certainly something the team will revisit and reconsider. If there's any word of work for this I'll let you all know here.
