Step 1: Create a new contra-account in Navision
Make sure to create a new balance contra account and call it Pleo
We recommend you choose an available number close to your regular bank-account number.
Step 2: Create a new Pleo-journal in Navision
Go to the search function in the top right corner and click "General Journals".
Click on the arrow point down next to batch name after which all your journals should open up.
Click "new" and call your new journal "Pleo". Under description you can write "Pleo expenses".
Lastly, underneath Bal. Account. No add your Pleo contra-account.
Step 3: Edit your Pleo Navision Journal
All columns with data from Pleo should be to the left of the freeze pane while the columns to the right side of the freeze pane should be the ones automatically populated by Navision. Next step is to make sure the journal fits with the export file from Pleo.
Click on your Pleo journal in Navision.
Right click on one of the column names at the top and select "choose columns".
Use the buttons "Move Up/Move Down" to make the following order up until the freeze pane.
Other dimensions e.g. employee code, department code, project code
Remarks (only some Navision versions have this)
Step 4: Setting up in Pleo
Next step in this process is to create the export-file in Pleo, so that it fits with your Navision Journal.
Go to Accounting in Pleo
Click "Create your own format" to the right
Enter your contra-account in the top field
Scroll to the bottom of the page until you see "File format"
Underneath column A click "new" and create the following order
Authorized date (click on the 3 small dots inside the green box to change the date format)
Static value "Finance"
Note + Employee name
Tag or department code
Receipt URL (only if you have the Remarks column in Navision)
6. Final step is to click the button "Format settings: One line & XLSX"
7. Click "List expense as positive" and make sure file type is "Excel".
Step 5: Exporting from Pleo to Navision
Open this guide to understand how export works
After this, jump to Export in order to export your first expense from Pleo
Open your Excel-file with the expense and copy the data
Jump into your Pleo-journal in Navision.
Right click and select "paste rows".
The expense data should hopefully now fit into your Pleo-journal.
Good to know - Getting the receipt into Navision
Navision comes in many different versions. Some can import receipt url's while others can't.
If you can add the column "Remarks" in your Nav-journal, you are able to get the receipt url. If you don't have this column, we can guarantee you can have the receipt url transferred.
If you have any issues setting this up, kindly reach out to your dedicated CSM or Support who can help you.
