    Unfortunately, QM2017 does not have this feature at this time.

    Fred, this is mostly a user-to-user support forum (although occasional Quicken announcements are made here), so none of us have any idea when certain new features might appear. And Quicken almost never pre-announces new features, nor puts dates on them, because development plans can change in an instant due to bugs they need to fix or complications in developing new features.

  • I upgraded from Mac Q2007 to Q19. Where is my watch list?

    Thanks. Just another reason I’d like to stay with Q2007. But it seems I can’t. I seem to work twice as hard to do the same things

    A work-around is to assign a very small lot size for any symbols you want to watch.

    Hello All 

     This Idea seems to have fallen stagnant and due to the Age of the request and lack of User Votes/Comments, will be archived within the next 7 business days.

     If you would like to see this Idea kept alive and considered for possible future implementation in Quicken, be sure to Add your Vote and a comment explaining how this Idea would be beneficial for you.

    More information, including steps to vote and how to submit your own Ideas for future product features/improvements, is also available here.

     Thank you,

     Quicken Community Support Team

    @Quicken_Tyka  Does the concept of a watch list exist in Quicken Windows, or was this only a legacy Quicken Mac feature.

    If this (or any) feature request for Quicken Mac is an existing Quicken Windows feature, and the stated goal of the company is for Quicken Mac to achieve relative parity with Quicken Windows features-wise, then I think this and any such Idea requests should remain active until they are implemented. Ones with low vote totals may understandably be way down the developer priority list -- but they shouldn't be archived away and forgotten.

    If, on the other hand, this is not a Quicken Windows feature and is a request to add a unique feature to Quicken Mac, then I think it's fine to archive this (and similar requests) which have not attracted many votes or comments.

    My 2¢…

    Yes it is a STANDARD feature on all versions except "modern" QMac.

    I do not understand why feature-parity type idea posts are simply not left alone until they get implemented.

    BTW, this IDEA has been requested MANY times in the forum....

  • Why dont you have an ability to have a watch list? Stocks that I'm interested in tracking the price of but dont own. I use a workaround of creating a separate account with .1 shares of the stock I'm interested in, but that does change my net worth, even at .1 shares. Amazon trades at over 3k so you can see my point.

    the stock 'tracking' in Qmac '17 is a joke. No Charting of individual stocks. 2007 was MUCH better. I have continued to run a parallel 07 version but as of 3/3/21 I cant download stock prices! What is happening?
