    Vote button is ALWAYS on the page 1 of the voting thread under the first post.

    Click the little grey triangle under the VOTE count at the top of page 1 in the blue banner, so your vote will count for THIS feature and increase its visibility to the developers by seeking to have the features you need or desire end up in the latest version (it may take a moment for your vote to register).
    (If the triangle is black, your vote has already been counted.)

    For now, I'll cross reference another similar but not exactly identical idea threads to this one... a more versatile too:

    So to vote for this feature, click here and then click the little gray arrow in the blue box under the first post. (You can only vote once. Make sure the vote count goes up by one; if you previously voted for an idea, the little arrow is black, and clicking on it will remove your vote.)

    There is a different Idea thread for a similar request which is currently marked as "Under Consideration"; click here to view and add your vote to that thread.

    @300 Guy As to why a particular idea hasn't been implemented, there can be many reasons. First, even with 86 votes for this idea, that doesn't necessarily indicate to the product development teams that a large number of people are clamoring for this. They also take into account metrics from their support teams, who interact with tens of thousands of Quicken users. Next, an idea may be difficult or resource-intensive to implement, and they may feel there are higher priorities which will impact more users.

    But in this case, I suspect there's a different reason: in the early years of the new generation of Quicken Mac, users asked for a lot of features from Quicken 2007 -- not because they were absolutely necessary but because they were used to doing things in a certain way. This was one of them. Many people asked for this mainly because they were used to doing it in legacy Quicken Mac or Quicken Windows. But they were in that habit because of limitations with the old databases of those products, limitations not present in a modern SQL database used by Quicken Mac. So I actually agreed with the idea that they probably didn't need to re-create an old feature people really wouldn't need with the capabilities of the modern database. But over time, I’ve seen a lot of people put forth interesting and valid reasons for wanting this functionality. People have divorced and no longer want the clutter of financial information about aspects of their former life; people have retired and want to rid themselves of categories and accounts no longer relevant; people used Quicken previously and either stopped for awhile or had accounts so out of whack they are unreconcilable, and they’d like a clean restart without starting from a completely blank data file (e.g retaining categories, rules, reports, settings or other things which would be lost starting from scratch); etc. So hopefully if the product development teams revisit this idea and look at the reasons people are citing for wanting this feature, they'll see it differently than they did several years ago.

    It has been many many years using Quick for Mac and in the past it did have the Year-End-Copy capability and was later removed. I would like to vote to have this capability added back into the product. The Windows version has always had this feature and not sure why the Mac version does not have this capability. Please let me know where I can vote to have this adding into a future release

    @rbtaylorva  Your comment has been moved by a moderator into the existing Idea thread for this functionality. To add your vote for a Year-End copy feature, go to the first page of this topic and click on the little arrow in the yellow box under the first post.

    Additionally, the help persuade the developers, can you add a comment about why this feature is something you want. They're not too interested in implementing features to simply check a box of things which used to be in other versions of Quicken; but they are interested in how this feature would help (or the absence of this feature hurts) your use of Quicken.
