Overall good experience

2016-12-09

Love the integration with RightSignature and security. Would like to see issues addressed sooner, e.g., for the longest time we could not access securedrawer through Google Chrome - this put a rather large burden on my clients and took far too long to be addressed.

Pros

Allows for secure file sharing and storage.

Cons

Previous issues logging in with specific browsers (Google Chrome) took a very long time to resolve.

Buyer Beware!

2016-03-22

Pros

I like the drag and drop feature.

Cons

If you go with the on-line version you need to be prepared to wait hours or days for their OCR system to process your queued files. Terrible!

Be careful! They oversell their on-line version. They claim it is not in Beta, but I beg to differ. This program has more bugs than a flea-bag hotel.

Security and sharing ease are great for documents with personal information that needs to get completed remotely.

Great storage platform for client information and filing.

Cons

Building drawers, files etc. might be a bit easier, especially when having to upload lots of documents. Going into ant completely out of files takes a bit more time than desired.

Julie's Review

2016-12-12

One function that could be better is sometimes when I save a lot of files, it goes to "please select a file to store it in" even though I already did and need to restart the program.

Pros

Ease of use with clicks of the mouse

Cons

have to restart it sometimes when I have a lot of work to do and the drag feature doesn't always work

For the most party I have been happy with the software.

Pros

Can easily store clients documents, in one location just like a real file cabinet

Cons

e-mail to clients. I wish we could click on multiple items to send in one e-mail. I would like to be able to do the same templates for personal tax clients and business tax clients without having to customize it each time.
