Each expense has the following fields:
This plugin is compatible with the following Kimai releases:
|Bundle version||Kimai 2 version|
Extract the ZIP file and upload the included directory and all files to your Kimai installation to the new directory:
The file structure needs to like like this afterwards:
var/plugins/ ├── ExpensesBundle │ ├── ExpensesBundle.php | └ ... more files and directories follow here ...
After uploading the files, Kimai needs to know about the new plugin. It will be found, once the cache was re-built:
cd kimai2/ bin/console cache:clear --env=prod bin/console cache:warmup --env=prod

If you want your user to be able to edit the cost and amount add the
edit_expense_cost permission to
After changing the permissions in local.yaml, you need to clear the application cache.
Updating the bundle works the same way as the installation does.
