Like to be able to sync foreign accounts with Quicken Mobile (85 Legacy Votes)

Currently I'm unable to sync foreign account to the web, so I don't see them in the mobile app.
It would really help me a lot if I can see my transactions on my mobile for these accounts.
And the app itself is also not available in The Netherlands in the Play Store.

    Senaida, who are you responding to?  If it's Splasher, notice the "SuperUser" designation after his ID.  That's awarded by Quicken for our extensive knowledge of the product.  Personally, I've been using Q for 25+ years, and I concur entirely with his reply.

    Billy, I wouldn't bet on other countries being included in Q Mobile ... because it would require that the banks/cards/brokerages/etc in other countries sign contracts with Quicken to become "Participating Financial Institutions".
    Q DOES support other currencies ... it's just that the Mobile App doesn't.

    The US version of Quicken of course are as you say.

    But there is a slight variation in this because starting with Quicken 2017 Canadian it is supporting Quicken mobile too.  (note there are only two supported country/versions of Quicken, US and Canada)

    Quicken Mobile when used with Quicken 2017 Canadian, supports Canadian financial institutions, and the accounts in CA$.

    So basically Quicken Mobile still has the "one currency" restriction, but it is restricted to Canadian dollars.

    None of this is of course relevant to other countries, but it is "interesting".  (at least to me)  :-)

     Dear Sir , I have been using Quicken Desktop 2015 till now and i really hope you can update the mobile version to support foreign currency. As the desktop version have multi currency supported and most of my account is under foreign currency. It's will be very hard for me to enjoy the full potential of your software as the mobile version only show my US account. Thank and i hope you can consider my idea as i have been asking about the same thing through live chat since the first day i'm using your product.

     I live in Thailand and want the ability to enter cash transactions (in Thai Baht) in mobile. I'm currently using Quicken for Windows 2017. I hope this feature is available in version 2018?

     @PhilOng I too have been asking this feature for a while. No response yet. Anyway I have voted. Quicken never cared - hopefully this time it is different
  • edited January 22
     Thanks to all that replied.  Hopefully a few more will express interest in this feature.  

    I hope someone from Quicken is reading: I don't need the mobile device to convert between currencies (that can be done in Windows or Mac), I only need for the mobile and base application to communicate in the native currency.  The ability to capture expenses on-the-go is a must.

     I'm using quicken 2018 and in the mobile version I don't have multiple currencies, I wish we get an update soon so I can use the program.

    Dear Quicken team,

    Please consider implementing mobile sync of bank accounts in currencies other than USD.
    This is a significant limitation of your mobile product.

    Thanks

    Considering that there are approx. 8 million American citizens living abroad, Quicken or some other international financial management software is certainly needed. Many have foreign bank accounts, in addition to their domestic U.S. bank accounts and  brokerage accounts, and also pay U.S. taxes every year. The ability to enter foreign currency transactions on the go would be a great time saver for all of us living abroad.(BTW: I have been using Quicken since the 2nd DOS version in the 1980's). Multi-currency accounts are no longer uncommon. Please improve the mobile app!

    Current mobile app is not useful for people who travel or live outside the USA.  Please add support for non-USD cash accounts in the new mobile app.  Thank you.
  • edited September 2018
    This is indeed frustrating as not having multi-currently support renders the app useless for people that manages more than USD only. It has been quite some time ( over 2 years) since this concern has been raised.

    I posted this issue on Amazon five and a half years ago - May 2013 - see below - https://www.amazon.com/review/R30UC4AJGJJ6CW

    Quicken expects us to upgrade every year or two, but can't even do something basic like this to make the mobile app somewhat useful.  I was hoping that the situation would improve after Quicken became independent and left Intuit, but it seems not.

    Only possible answer after this amount of time is that Quicken are completely ignoring us.  They can't be bothered with non-US users!

    It is NOT just non-US users who need this. Many users nowadays hold accounts (cash, investments, etc) in foreign currencies.

    In my opinion it comes down to priorities.  One person's must have feature is another person's I don't care feature.  And the majority of Quicken users (yes US users) don't use multiple currencies and as such want different features first.

    But from what I understand of the history it even as clear cut as that.
    The initial reason given to only support one currency is that the system tied into the Express Web Connect system to get transactions, and it only supported downloading transactions in one currency (USD/financial institutions for the US version and CAD/financial institutions for the Canadian version).

    Now of course Intuit sold Quicken, but Express Web Connect is still supplied by them.
    I know that there was a BIG conversion of Quicken Mobile about a year after the sell to get at least some of this process on Quicken servers instead of Intuit servers.  It is not clear to me what is controlled by what company at this point in reference to the currency.  I do know that this conversion took a lot of work, and it is even why the budgets were removed from Quicken mobile for a long time.  Not only were they transferring some of this to Quicken servers, they also did a major rewrite on Quicken mobile.

    All of this has taken a lot of time out of being able to put in ANY bew feature.

    This has been an ongoing frustration. I have an account in foreign currency.  I travel often to this destination, and these are the times when I would most appreciate the  transaction input functionality with mobile app: I'm away from my PC for weeks and also making dozens of transactions every day.
    It's a pain to come back and have to figure out a long list of expenses with unfamiliar names.

    dominipater create a cash in USD (or if using the Canadian version CAD) and sync it with the Quicken Cloud.

    While away enter the foreign currency transactions into that account.
    When you get home, sync with the Quicken Cloud, and then move the transactions from that cash account to your foreign currency account.

    I do this - it is a ridiculous POIA workaround.  Also, none of the other features showing monthly spending, etc are accurate since I do a lot of spending from my foreign currency accounts.  UGH!!!
