File Cabinet

The Neat File Cabinet is the section in Neat where your imported, scanned, and uploaded documents are stored. You can create your own custom folder directory and organize your files any way you like!

Needs Review Folder

The Needs Review folder is an easy, convenient way of viewing all items that have not been opened in Neat regardless of which folder they reside in. Once viewed the item will no longer be in Needs Review folder. If that item was not already placed in a specific folder, it will appear in the Unfiled section under File Cabinet. See more about the Needs Review folder here.

All Files Folder

The All Files folder is a virtual folder that presents every item in your file cabinet on one grid. This folder will allow users to filter all items regardless of what folder they belong to. This folder also supports all of the same filter and grid action items. For example: you can reprocess, send to accounting, export, combine, and separate from the All Files folder as well.

Unfiled Folder

The Unfiled folder stores all items in your database that do not have a folder assisgned to them. If you review an item in the Needs Review folder and forget to select a folder for the item, then the item will end up in the Unfiled folder. To move items out of this folder, assign a folder to each item.

Saved Reports Folder

All Classic Reports are automatically saved in the Saved Reports folder. This folder acts as a quick filter to see all reports generated in Neat.

Please Note: Accounting reports do not get automatically saved in the Saved Reports folder at this time.
