Release Notes: December 9, 2022

Mandatory MFA for Accountants

For security reasons, Certify will now mandate multi-factor authentication (MFA) for Accountants attempting to approve Spend Requests tied to Emburse Cards. 

If an Accountant - that is not multi-factor authenticated - navigates to an individual spend request that matches this criteria and clicks ‘Approve Request’, they will see a screen asking them to take one of two options:

1. Enable MFA for Account and Authenticate

Clicking will enforce the user level ‘Enable Multi-Factor Authentication’ setting and prompt the Accountant to authenticate.  Accountants will receive an MFA code via email or phone. Upon successful authentication, they will be redirected to the below page to complete their Spend Request approval: 

2. Go back

Clicking takes the accountant back to the spend request review page.

This also applies to any user delegating or extended-delegating into an Accountant account and attempting to approve a Spend Request linked to an Emburse Card. 

Temporary Passwords Removed from Custom Welcome Emails

Clients using the dynamic {Usr_Password} field in their custom welcome emails will find that the temporary password has been replaced by the following text: 

“The temporary password field has been deprecated. Please use this link to create a new password:”.

This change was made based on customer feedback about the temporary password sometimes expiring before the receiver’s first-time login. We hope that this change enables end-users to have a more seamless onboarding experience.
