What types of files can I import?
You can import the following file types to Neat
What is the max file size I can import?
There is no file size limit on items imported to Neat!
How many files can I import at a time?
There is currently no limit to the amount of files you can import at one time. However, the more items you import at one time, the longer it will take for your items to process.
Can I import an image to an existing file?
Yes, you can! However this feature is limited to items in your database that do not already have an existing image. Future releases of Neat will allow you to import or add images to items that already have images.
How to Import an Image to an Existing File
- Locate an item that does not already have an image, and double click on the item to open it. Click Attach Image.
- In the ‘Attach Your File’ window, click Choose File. Then browse to the image you want to import on your computer and select it.
- Once the image is selected, click Attach. If you are adding an image to a Receipt or Business Card, then you can turn on NeatVerify. You will not be able to apply a NeatVerify credit to any other item type.
- It will take a couple moments for the import and your item to process. We recommend closing the item window and refreshing your page if processing is taking a while.
- Once the processing is complete, you can view your item image in the image viewer.
