Uploading Receipts into EEBA

RECEIPT UPLOADING:

Why not gang up with OneReceipt or one of the other receipt-tracking apps. They turn the photo of a receipt into a print out (just text - no big photo files). If this text could be imported into EEBA - via syncing of accounts (or something more convenient than copying and pasting), then EEBA could list each of your transactions PLUS an itemized list of what your purchased.

Currently I'm using the two apps separately, which is still way more convenient than rifling through physical receipts that I've "filed" (thrown) into a box.

Hi Nichole,

Thanks for the suggestion! We've noted it in our requested features tracker and will look into it.

This is something that I've been looking for. Unfortunate that the comments are 2-3 years old without action.

I love goodbudget but the only thing that I would change for is a company that saves receipts too. You could even interface with Dropbox's API or copy.com or onenote or any of the thousands of free online storage places.

@Tony -- I can definitely see how saving digital copies of receipts would be helpful so that you can refer back to them on a later date. And, as you've seen, other folks agree. We've spent time thinking about what this feature could look like, and how much effort it would take to make it happen. However, we've come to the decision that we are going to prioritize other features that are even more popular than this one. (Goal Envelopes is a good example: https://getsatisfaction.com/goodbudget/topics/setting_up_an_irregular_envelop) That doesn't mean that we've completely ruled it out as something to work on in the future, but it's not a feature that we are currently working on now. 

I hope you know that we do value what you all say, and want to continue to hear from you.  We're constantly listening to all of you to help us decide what to work on next.  Here's a link to our roadmap that has more information on the features that we are actively working on: https://goodbudget.com/roadmap/  I hope this helps!

BTW, I saw your comment on the other thread. I'll just respond to this thread.

What is it going to take to get this receipt feature done?   You can hook up with many APIs that store online content (dropbox, copy.com, onedrive, etc.)?

Hi Tony,

Right now, there are other features that are at the top of our priority list. There are many great suggestions that we hear from our users, and we love hearing them. Because we can't make every feature request happen, we have to constantly re-think and re-prioritize what we are working on. Again, we haven't ruled our the store receipts feature, however, there are other features and updates that we are giving our attention to currently. We will definitely let you know if and when we do work on this. Thanks again.
