Print Customer Payment Receipt

UKRUKR SuperUser ✭✭✭✭✭
Quicken for Windows, Home & Business feature level.

When recording a New Customer Payment in my Customer Invoices account there is no function available to print a receipt, a hardcopy of this transaction, directly from the transaction entry form.

A simple layout, similar to a Rent Payment receipt, a cash register receipt or a check-like format would suffice.

I request this new function be considered for a future version of Quicken H&B.

    I am shocked that Home & Business does not give me a way to create a receipt that I can give or e-mail to a customer! This is basic business functionality!! Please, please, please create something. :-)

    I too find this incredibly frustrating! As a business, of course I will need to send receipts. Please please fix this asap.

    Laura, Angel,
    thank you for your responses.

    What kind of a layout would you suggest that this Receipt have? One full letter size page? Smaller?

    Do you currently have a pre-printed Receipt form that you use? If yes, could you capture an image snapshot and attach it here?

    I'm just trying to give the programmers some ideas, in case they ever get around to adding this function.

    The
    Windows Snipping Tool (available with Windows 7 and up) can be used to capture
    a partial screen image and save it to a file. 
    Microsoft Paint can be used to annotate the image.

    To take a screenshot in Mac please see https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201361

    Please create image files of type PNG, JPG or BMP only.

    To attach the image here, start composing your reply. At the bottom of the text
    entry window you'll see a row of icons beginning with B I U S

    Click the camera icon (not the video camera icon). It will allow you to select
    and upload the captured image file from your computer. The captured image will
    be inserted at wherever the cursor is located in the text.

    I have been waiting for this option through multiple upgrades, and have had a conversation with several reps to no avail!  If UKR is still working on this, I would be happy to attach my receipt sample

    Go ahead, Don, and post your image. How to do that is described in my earlier post above on this webpage.

    I'm just the user who originally requested this new feature. It's up to the programmers to act upon it.

    If you (or anybody else reading this post) would like to see this feature added, please click the VOTE button on this webpage. The more votes this post receives from the user community the more likely it is that we get our wish.

    With the form generator that is already utilized elsewhere in Quicken (e.g. Statements) individuals could format with logos etc and produce one click receipts.  The "Receive Payment" could doubled up to also include "Receive Payment and print receipt"

    Why isn't this in the new release?   Need to be able to print receipts for my clients!

    I know. I asked for this going on two years ago. While I appreciate Don’s helpful comment, giving your customer a receipt is such a basic function that I am flabbergasted that a product that claims to be for business owners does not have it. All year I have been pestered by the software to purchase the 2018 version, but they are not getting a dime more from me until they provide this function. It’s as bad as selling a word processor that can’t do capital letters.

    In Q 2018 programmers have added a new line to the bottom of a printed Customer Invoice:
    Balance Due       $xxx.xx
    but they are still working the kinks out of that one, especially when printing multiple customer invoices in a batch.

    Not a peep from the programmers about printing a Receipt directly from the Customer payment dialog. Probably not enough demand, based on the number of votes (six) this discussion has generated so far.

    Maybe this will help ...

    Hello, programmers,

    This is one of the main functions I need for my business. I am waiting to upgrade my Quicken from 2013! This should have been like step 2 in creating this software. Maybe I'll look into Quickbooks.
