"Bought this but requesting a refund...full of..."
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I read some reviews elsewhere and thought NeatWorks would offer a UI improvement over ReceiptWallet. What a mistake. NeatWorks 2.0.4 has some bugs and poorly implemented features. I'm sticking with ReceiptWallet from here on out. Here's what I've discovered after only 1/2 hour of use:
1) The software will erratically loose connection to my Fujitsu S300M scanner for no apparent reason, forcing me to go the "Fujitsu ScanSnap Settings" and then press that "Start ScanSnap Manager" button to get it working again. I never had this problem with my previous receipt program, ReceiptWallet. This is repeatable even after quitting and restarting the program a number of times.
2) The visible text fields to the right of the previewed image varies with each scanned item, forcing me to customize the field selections per item (!!). For instance, I have to manually add the "Category" field to every item scanned. This renders the software completely impractical and unusable.
3) I cannot uncheck any of the "Document Fields" items in that pop up list (to the upper right portion of the window); they'll are grayed-out and checked by default. Obviously I need to customize those visible fields to my own needs.
4) I can't find a way to apply specific parameters to a newly created Smart Folder. I used Smart Folders constantly in ReceiptWallet which, when double-clicked, allows for very specific parameters to be set for each Smart Folder (such as specific text in a specific custom field).
If you're not very fussy maybe this software will work for you, but it has some real faults.
