Domain Control

This powerful feature allows companies to take greater control over user accounts with email addresses on a particular “domain” (eg, everything after the “@” in an email address). Domain Control feature is most often used by companies looking to centrally manage employees, or to centrally import company cards. Domain control is only available on the Corporate plan.

With domain control, you can:

    • Prevent users from switching their account email address away from their company email address and avoiding these restrictions.
    • Prevent users from being able to create any expense policies. This is useful for preventing people from using Expensify to submit reports for use outside your domain when combined with strict policy enforcement.
    • Prevent users from switching their primary policy by setting in stone which policy must be used by each account in a permission group.


    Setting Up Domain Control

    Before starting, make sure that you have upgraded to the Corporate Plan.

    Step 1: Go to Admin > Domain Control and click “Get in control”.

    Step 2: You will then need to verify ownership of this domain before continuing. You may need to consult your organization’s IT department to complete the verification process.

    You have two very simple methods to verify your domain: Host a File or Add a DNS Record.
