Automatically add to investment transaction lists problems
Now that Quicken 2017 R3 windows fixed the zero placeholder bug, I would like to see another time saving feature added. The Automatically add to investment transaction lists option saves time allowing Quicken to enter downloaded investing transactions into investment transaction lists automatically. Manually entering transactions times out for over a minute each in my larger investment accounts wasting considerable time. Quicken will not automatically enter transactions requiring additional information. . . you must turn off the option in preferences, exit and re-enter the account to actually see the downloaded transactions [another bug]. Most transactions require a choice between zero averaging vs. first-in first-out for sales, which one should be consistent with. Most other transactions with puts and calls, mergers, etc. enter automatically and require clean up later on. Hence, why not an option to select the sale's taxation as a de facto option for all sales to prevent having to manually accept each transaction?
