Can you scan & capture receipts for auto-entry?

I just starting using Simplifi, and maybe this functionality is already possible with the app and I just haven't found it.  Is there a way to snap and capture a receipt and quickly record a transaction on the go? I'm wondering if there's an easy way to enter a quick transaction while you're at the store, for example.

    Thanks, DannyB!

    QuickBooks can scan receipts and extracts the transaction info for matching. I only use that app for business. I’d love this functionality for Simplifi, which I’ve recently starting using for household finances. 

    There are other apps that can do this- Expensify is one. I believe Evernote is/was able to run OCR over the image to make text searchable. I can also use the notes app on my iPhone to snap photos of text and it will create a pdf with selectable/searchable text. 

    How convenient it would be if I could just scan in receipts and deal with matching details later. 

    Also, I do wish there was the ability to attach PDF files to transactions and not just images.

    Okay thank you Coach Natalie! I’ll create an idea post and hopefully we’ll see this functionality soon :)
