Restore Transactions Downloading Acceptance and Matching workflow to Quicken Mac (315 Legacy Votes)

smayer97smayer97 SuperUser ✭✭✭✭✭
Please restore the ability to control the matching and acceptance of downloaded transactions from FI/banks to Quicken for Mac, like in QM2007 or even QWin. 

Make it an option to either require manual acceptance or automatic recording into the register.

Currently, downloading automatically to the register does not allow the user to easily control and verify that matching has taken place correctly, that transactions are correct, etc. Automatically accepting them immediately affects the current balance of the register/account, which is sometimes not desirable until the transactions have been verified.

In developing this workflow, I suggest that there be the ability to sort the Downloading window by all fields, including, Transaction Date, Posted Date, Check #, Payee, Debit/Credit Amounts (just like the original in QM2007).

Please add this capability back to Quicken for Mac.

    I agree.  My process is to check my receipts against the downloaded transactions and mark them as reviewed.  More difficult now with the auto matching.  Would vote to have this capability back.

    Great...but to vote you actually have to click the "VOTE" button at the top. That is what gets counted.

    Thanks for a very well written rationale for getting this added! Hope it will get LOTS of votes and attract the developers attention...

    I totally agree!!!! I have been initially using MS Money until it went away. When I switched to Quicken for Windows, each version was getting better and better. however, Mac version looks like a VERY simplified version of the Windows edition. Please integrate the ability to review the dowloaded transactions before accepting the or matching them with transactions already entered manually. Also, it would be nice to be able able to upload bank statements and notices to a particular account. Is there a possibility to also download images of cleared checks instead of having to save them manually attach them to each check transaction?

    I believe this is an essential feature.  It helps ensure the quality of registers and allows users to appropriately match transactions with relative ease.  I won't fully convert to the Mac version is included in a future release.

    I agree, especially since quicken doesn't do the best job at picking the correct category for each transaction.

     I also highly recommend that you browse through the IDEAS section of this forum and VOTE for the request of each of the missing features to be added back into Quicken for Mac....to help direct the priorities of the developers.
    To do that, I suggest you read this FAQ on how to filter the IDEAS to just show the ones for the Mac version, then VOTE to your heart's content:
    https://getsatisfaction.com/quickencommunity/topics/quicken-getsat-faq-how-to-filter-conversations-d...

    The following are some of the many feature requests you will find: Be sure to scroll down the page, as some contain lists of related features. Click on the link to EACH IDEA separately that you are interested in, then click the VOTE button at the top of EACH page that opens up respectively to increase the count and therefore its visibility to the developers.

    If you do not click VOTE at the top of the page of each feature, your vote will NOT be counted for THAT specific feature!

    Why does Quicken feel that the auto reconcile function was the best method and remove the ability that had been in previous versions for YEARS! Come on developers return this ability to MAC2017.

    Keep in mind that Quicken did not remove features. Rather they started rebuilding the software from scratch, with the first release in 2010. They had many fits and starts but finally have a rhythm going now, busy trying to add back many of the features.

    I appreciate the nuance, but for all practical purposes they removed capability through their decision to rebuild from scratch.  While I can understand that they would be reluctant to do so, providing some roadmap guidance would be helpful to those that hope the pace of their rebuilding effort accelerates.

    Here's my take on the rewrite.  I'm pleased they built the product from the ground up. Especially since Apple continues to upgrade their OS.

    However, it was a feature in the 2007 version and its a feature in the Widnows versions. It was in those versions because it was a great feature. They took 8 years to rebuild the program. Mac 2015 release should have come out of the box with more features as in the Windows versions.  

    This method of having us vote for features is nice but they don't publish the voting results.  So it seems to me they just do what they want when they want instead of listening to their customers. The feature, manually accepting downloads, should be on the vote list if they are listening.

    Agreed.

    As an aside keep in mind that it has not been 8 years of continuous effort but rather 3 completely separate attempts at getting Quicken for Mac off the ground (where the first one failed and the second one stalled after QEM was released). It is only since the effort of bringing QM2015 onward to market has Quicken finally developed a momentum to go forward.

    And though not a perfect solution, I believe that by having the voting here on the forum makes the results more visible to all. Hopefully, Quicken will take these results into account well. So let's keep the voting going.

    In calendar time is was 8 years.  I don't care how they managed internal efforts to get product to market.  There first solution was Essentials which is totally inadequate for users who need to track investments and create data for tax returns.

    I'm not saying QM 2016 (my current install)  is a bad program but its not where it should be

    The voting is displayed in real-time at the head of each IDEA (including this one). What more could you want?

    Now I agree that Quicken does not publish their plans based on this voting. The voting is a recent feature addition and so it likely has not (yet) had a great impact on the planning process, or more precisely, the delivered product. Remember that these user wants do not get implemented overnight and have to compete for priority with other requirements such as: the separation of Quicken from Intuit, and security upgrades, and bug fixes.

    And ... I do believe that manually accepting downloads is on the vote list. Look at the vote count the top of this discussion thread.

    lhossus, the IDEA list is limited to 10 items chosen by Quicken and you can only vote for 3 of the 10, got to have rules!  This voting is something else set up by a user 2 months ago. In fact any user can set up an idea for forum users to vote on,  However, they are not kept in one place

    @Steven, you are referring to the Compare or Feedback page put up by Quicken on their main site. Yes that is limited. That is why there is this avenue on GetSat to allow more input. ALL IDEAs posted by users show up under the IDEA tab/filter on this site.

    As posted above, I suggest you read this FAQ on how to filter the IDEAS to just show the ones for the Mac version, then VOTE to your heart's content:

    Yes, they do show the vote tally at the top right hand side of the page.  My question is Quicken looking at these suggestions and doing anything with the data.

    I've been to the get satisfaction page a couple of times and I must be missing something because I can't seem to filter anything useful.  I'd love to see all the GetSat suggestions for Quicken for Mac all in one place.
