Add ability to choose months/yearly data for budget prints/reports

Budget printing capabilities are getting better but need more options.  Right now the 12 month budget report can be rescaled to fit onto fewer pages, but it prints all the monthly budgets and actuals spent and doesn't include an annual summary.  In QM2007, one could choose which months to print as well as an annual summary.  Could we add those options back in?

    I would request that you include an option in the budget report to just print the monthly budgeted columns and not an actual and difference column.

    For budgets, I would love to have YTD budgets. Right now I can only see where I am for the month and the full year which isn't really helpful until the year ends.

    I have Quicken 2017 for MAC and I want to do a budget report without exporting.  Right now you can do a budget report for 1 month or 12 months.  I want a report for year to end of current month(1-1-17 to 5-31-17}.  Does Quicken plan to have this. It was done in the older Quicken for Windows 2013.  If I pay a bill with a Bill Payment App. for the end of the month, it is not reflected in the the budget reports current available.

    The only options when viewing a budget are YTD and full year.
    So on 1st July I cannot see my budget vs actuals for Jan-Jun because July is already included. This is stupid.

    Please allow the selection of  the ending month so we can see meaningful data.

    Just checking in on this topic-- I have been using and loving much about Quicken for Mac, but am totally frustrated by the inability to customize budget reports, as described, or to do budgeted/actual reports as I could do (and did monthly!) in Windows. What is the status of this in Quicken for Mac? Is it in the development pipeline? How can we find out?

    Quicken will NEVER release it's future plans for improvement or bug fixes or added features.

    Fair enough-- no reason to give people extra reasons to get upset! If I follow this thread, am I likely to hear if and when such a feature has been released? And/or any other suggestions?

    Actually, it is not NEVER, but it is rare...and so no, you are not likely to know well in advance. The surest is to monitor the Release Notes here.

    Sigh. I was afraid it might be something like that. Searching those notes is challenging, and almost always leads me back to this forum, to see if there are any updates.

    You can't release what you don't have :)

    Quicken 2018 - I'd like to see how I'm doing in my budget for different time frames. Right now, I can only see year-to-date, or each month individually. For example, it's May now, but I'd like to see how I did from January -April, now that those months are completed. Is there any way to adjust the time frame when viewing budget performance ?

    In the report "Current Budget" you can customize all dates and choose your own time frame.

    Sorry, Shelley,

    @Harry posted a response that is valid only for Quicken for Windows.

    This entire thread of messages is about Quicken for Mac which has yet to learn how to do what every Q Mac user is asking for ...

    It seemed too good to be true! It's important enough to me that I follow this thread, waiting hopefully for the feature to migrate to Mac.
