Receipts not processing, stuck in Android app PROCESSING column

kacitkacit Member Posts: 13

I've recently photographed around maybe 100 receipts (in batches of approx 8-10) using the Android app, but after the first few were processed & uploaded successfully, processing seems to have stopped & I have the majority stuck in the 'PROCESSING' column, displaying 'Unknown Merchant' & 'Uncategorized''.

I was able to manually process just one by itself by opening it up & setting amount, merchant, date etc then saving, but the rest - the bulk of the 100 or so - are just stuck there.

More recent receipts I've captured ARE being processed / uploaded to Wave, but those I mentioned above, which I bulk processed earlier, are still sitting there on my phone app, with status of 'PROCESSING'.

How do I now unblock & clear this backlog? Do I have to now process each receipt individually to get them to all upload?

Thanks in advance for your advice

    Would anyone from Wave TS be able to help me with this? I still have the problem.

    Hey @kacit you'll likely need to run through some troubleshooting steps; please note that you'll likely have to re-process the stuck receipts after doing some of the following:

    • Try closing and re-launching the app.
    • Log out and back into the app.
    • Check to make sure that you're connected to a cellular data or WiFi network.
    • Ensure that you've turned on permissions from the settings menu of your device.
    • Uninstall and reinstall the app on your device.
    • Restart your device.

    If it's still giving you a hard time, please let me know the version of the app you are using, the type of device you are using, and the operating system version.

    Hi Ryan, before uninstalling / reinstalling, will I, when I do this, lose all of the receipts that have already been photographed but not yet uploaded?

    I've just logged out/in and the backlog of 'processing' receipts has cleared! This must be some sort of bug in the app as there's no way all those pending receipts could've processed & uploaded within that instant.

    Anyway, all looks fine now,....thanks for your help :)
