Challenge Overview

Use your JavaScript and Salesforce skills to make life easier for everyone that is required to submit an expense report. Create a Lightning Component that allows a user to choose a project for the expense (from a picklist), enter the amount, date, vendor (who they paid money to) and some notes to create a new expense entry. The user will also be able to upload an image of the receipt from the phone/tablet as an attachment to the record. Also implement a way to view a project and see all of the expenses with a total for all of them. No need to implement functionality to edit records.

Reliability Rating and Bonus

For challenges that have a reliability bonus, the bonus depends on the reliability rating at the moment of registration for that project. A participant with no previous projects is considered to have no reliability rating, and therefore gets no bonus. Reliability bonus does not apply to Digital Run winnings. Since reliability rating is based on the past 15 projects, it can only have 15 discrete values.
