Edit additions needed -Void Transaction (46 Legacy Votes)

I would hope QM2017 can soon have some editing abilities we had in QM2007.  Namely the functions of 'Move', 'Void', 'Add transaction to iCal'.  Here are the options from 9 years ago:

Here are the options from now in QM2017:

Duplicate Transaction is a great addition!

(Edited-Removed "Move" option as this is availalble)

    I agree. I just tried to move a transaction that I mistakenly put in the wrong account...and could not.

    The way to move a transaction in QM2017 is to click and drag it from one register to another. Note that you cannot move transactions in the Investment registers, for hopefully obvious reasons.

    I am afraid I do not see the obvious reason you would not click and drag entries made in the wrong account to the correct account.  In fact when I discussed a problem I was having with QM2016 with Tech Support they felt that drag and drop would be the best fix - but it was unavailable.

        I am a long time Quicken user on a PC and love the program.  After calling Quicken and being told that Quicken Deluxe for the Mac was now virtually identical to the PC version, I decided to purchase a Mac because of other inherent PC issues.  Surprise!, Quicken for the Mac in a few areas is primitive compared to the PC version (particularly in the reports section) and missing several important features like “VOID” a transaction.  I love the way the Mac runs so sure hope the people at Quicken are listening and fix the program because as it is now, you cannot make professional looking reports tailored to specific needs (like on the PC) and that is simply unacceptable.

        Well, first, the support rep who told you the Mac version was "virtually identical" to the Window version should be flogged with a wet noodle. Sorry... adjusting for political correctness... should be given some additional training. The reality is that the Mac version has been making progress, but it still has some major omissions versus the Windows version. Some of these omissions can be worked around if you learn how; some of the omissions are problematic.

        Voiding a transaction is one of those that's pretty easy to work around -- annoying perhaps, but not fatal. Simply added "VOID" to the Payee name, set the amount to zero, and if you wish, record the original transaction amount in the memo field. Yes, that's three steps versus one command, but it gets you there. And it's not something most users need to use very often.

        As for reports, yes, that's one of the areas that's still not up to snuff on the Mac. If you play around with the "New Report" reports, you can generate a significant number of reports most people would want, but not everything. The good news is that this is a major areas of focus for the Mac development team according to the product manager. Progress is slow, but progress is being made, and the developers do understand that better reports is at or near the top of the list of requests from Quicken Mac users.

        Actually, after viewing the *comparison chart* on Quicken's site--and then following up with a Quicken representative immediately thereafter--I was told *exactly* that. So, it's probably not just one rep.

        Please, please, please add a void transaction button or shortcut. I miss the options of Q2007.

        Please, please, please add a void transaction button or shortcut. I miss the options of Q2007.
        @Golf Is Fun  I'm not being argumentative, but I'm curious how many transactions you void in a year? For most people, it's a handful at best. And it takes only a few seconds to manually mark a transaction as void.

        You can "void" to the Payee name, but in modern Quicken Mac, this creates a new Payee separate from your original Payee. That's why I prefer to enter VOID in the Memo field, so this voided transaction will be included if I do a report by Payee. I also like to record the original amount of the transaction in the memo field. (In Quicken 2007, once you voided a transaction, you had no record of how much the original transaction was.) And then you change the Amount to zero. So I feel I have better control over the transaction, and it takes 20 seconds the few times a year I need to do it.

        I'd have no objection if they added a Void command; it just ranks way, way, way down the list of priorities I'd like to see them address in Quicken Mac (cough, QuickMath, cough ;) ).
