Hey Shoeboxers! We’re excited to let you know that you can now view all of your uncategorized receipts on one screen, so it’s even easier to add all of your receipts to the correct categories and stay super organized.
As you know, adding your receipts to the correct category (or categories) makes it easier to sort and view your receipts. Thank you to all of you who submitted your feedback on the need to view all uncategorized receipts in one place.
Now, when you log into Shoeboxed, right under the “Last 5 Receipts” section you’ll see a line that says “You have X uncategorized receipts, better get going.” Simply click that link and you’ll be taken to a page with all of your uncategorized receipts so that you can quickly add them to the right category. If you don’t have any uncategorized receipts then you’re already organized (way to go!) and that line will not be displayed.
FEATURE UPDATE: In addition to our fancy new homepage, Shoeboxed has added a new feature that automatically categorizes your receipts into common tax categories. Based on a sophisticated algorithm that takes into account the receipt information, your receipts will be placed in default categories that are now in every Shoeboxed account.
Based on common tax categories, these default categories will come with every Shoeboxed account. This is a great time-saving feature, as you won’t have to spend as much time categorizing your own receipts. It’s just one way that Shoeboxed continues to make your life easier.
So here’s how it works: When you email, upload, or mail your grocery store receipts to Shoeboxed, they will automatically be put in your new Food Category, and when you fill up at the pump, that receipt will automatically head to your Gas Category. Your old receipts will be directed toward appropriate default categories in addition to new ones you put in.
You’ll still have the ability to create and use your own custom categories, but we think these default categories will help you stay organized without having to spend as much time doing it yourself. Hooray technology!
