I LOVED Wave because I could email receipts on the go. I cannot imagine why they cancelled this beloved feature. So many receipts we never even get in paper form and some are not easily downloaded or screenshotted (they're in the body of an email and/or too long for a single screen grab). It is also a pain in the ass to download, log in and upload. An email forward saved so much time. I also loved the image processing, it saved a huge amount of time.
Will be looking for another service provider that offers these functions. Why did you make our lives harder Wave????
This is the worst "upgrade" of all time.
I absolutely hate the new way of uploading receipts. The ability to simply take a photo of the receipt and have Wave OCR it and then go back later to enter details was one of the best parts of Wave. This change may be a deal breaker.
I hope WaveApps is reading these comments. This is a poor solution advertised as an upgrade. It appears to me that this is a business decision that favors the convenience of the business WaveApps and has absolutely nothing to do with the preference of the clients. Message received loud and clear that WaveApps is doing what is best for them not the customer.
I have a bunch of receipts uploaded but not yet posted to the book, Now with the page gone, where do i get back those receipt? Do i have to re-upload them ? (please tell me that's not the case)
And why is OCR taken away? It is a very useful feature that makes our lives easier.
Overall, I do not think the change is positive. Another strike on reconsidering using the service.
Alternatives to WAVE? Let's start a list and take our business to someplace else.
I am very sad the receipt feature is gone from the app. Also, I don't like how the OCR image processing is now longer working I loved this app for the ease of the OCR image processing - this is now no different than manual input.
Newer user and just getting comfortable with Wave and had been touting positive comments to many others....until recently.
Very, very, VERY bad "enhancement"--totally echo LOUDLY all previous concerns/complaints relating to new receipt functionality....this is too many steps backward to count and a terrible user experience adding so many more steps and time to our already busy days as small business owners. Please help us understand what prompted this change--what exactly was wrong with the previous receipts feature--fast, easy, OCR populated, quick merge with bank transactions, immediate uploads, no need to monitor or follow-up? Hmmmm--wait, those are all GOOD things!
Do you really read the forums and take in feedback? The receipt feature was working great, one can upload a bunch and once the transaction posted I can match them all up. It was great that I could have stored the receipt in a holding area until i can get to them. This new feature is 10 steps backwards. Now I have to keep track on what device or computer I have a receipt so I can upload it when the transaction gets posted.
People have been asking about sub categories feature for year but instead you worked to reduce and release a worse experience on a feature that worked so nicely. Now it's really time to look for another accounting system, wave has become more work lately with all the unwanted "enhancements" being released. Please bring back the old receipt feature, it worked why change it.
