How to delete unused expense receipts

I have a lot of old expense receipts in the allocation list which I don’t need. It doesn’t seem to give a delete option? Is there a way these can be removed please? Thanks

How to delete unused expense receipts

Hi Learning294,


Are you referring to bank transactions? Would you mind sharing a screenshot of the allocation list page and an attempt to delete a receipt? Thank you in advance.

  2. Select Transactions, then choose Receipts.
  3. Select those unallocated receipts you'll want to delete.
  4. Then, click the Batch actions dropdown.

If that's not the case, would you mind attaching a screenshot to this post once you already have it? This way, I can provide you with the best resolution to how to delete unallocated receipts from the expense listing page.
