New Securities In Investment Reports (7 Legacy Votes)

I have many custom investment reports.  Whenever I add a new security, I have to determine for each report whether or not it should be included.  It would be helpful if in the Customize screens there was a checkbox that if checked would include all newly added securities so that I don't have to update each report every time a new security is added.  If the new checkbox is not checked then it should act just as it does now so that you can determine whether or not add this new security to the report.

    There is already a similar feature for adding new categories to reports. Having the same feature for new securities would be helpful.

    Doesn't the show change alerts option take care of this.  if you have added securities you will get a prompt asking if you want them included in the report or not.

    You are correct that this allows you the option to include this security in the report or not.  But, when you have a lot of reports it would save considerable time if there was a process like I described that would allow you to automatically include the security in reports without having go through this process.

    Just want to add my vote for this suggestion.  Quicken used to do this before it was 'improved'.

    @Quicken_Tyka:  This idea should be on the developers list as one of several that point to a broad issue of how new securities, accounts, tags, categories, etc. are handled in saved reports.  There seems to be inconsistency and room for improvement across the board.  Some top-end thought needs to be applied to that process rather than piecemeal changes.

    I concur. I purchase a new security and then open my saved investment reports. Every one of my investment reports opens with the change notice and I have to add the security, and then save the report. Is there some simple way that I am missing a switch or something to get this to work without the change notice? Help. For some investors that play weekly options, seems like they would be continually having to modify their reports. If it is not currently available, Quicken should add it as an option - just a simple check box somewhere that automatically adds (or shows) all non-hidden securities?

    Perhaps an improvement would be to change the change alerts checkbox to radio buttons:
    o Automatically add new securities and accounts to this report
    o Show me change alerts
    o Do not automatically add  new securities and accounts

    I trade in new securities daily and its a pain in the [removed - language] to keep telling the report to include new securities. I thought I checked a box to include all securities when I created the report. The default should include new securities, the exception should be not to.
