Why is there a receipt scanner that auto-populates the information on the "self employed" app, but not the standard app? Having to manually input everything is so tedious

The "self employed" app has a receipt scanner that pulls information from the receipt and makes organizing those receipts easier. I am currently using the standard quickbooks app for an LLC, and to add a single expense is far too tedious. You can take a photo of the receipt, sure, but it doesn't pull any of the information. You have to manually input everything, and add new payee information for each individual receipt. When I am tracking expenses like gasoline or food, this takes such a long time. When will there be a receipt scanner available for the standard quickbooks app? 


Hello, andrewwynykoski.

We appreciate you for sharing your thoughts with us.

At the moment, there isn't an available receipt scanner that auto-populates the information on a standard QuickBooks app. You'll need to manually input them into your QuickBooks Online app.

While this feature is not yet available, we'd appreciate if you can send us your feedback. You can do this by clicking the Gear icon in the and selecting Feedback. This gets sent directly to our product development team and will make them aware of how you'd like the program to work.

Stay tuned for now. Please let me know if you have any further concerns.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
