Home Quicken for Mac Product Ideas - Quicken for Mac Manage Accounts and Transactions (Mac)

Add a "Registers" menu item to the Accounts menu (Q Mac)

RickORickO SuperUser ✭✭✭✭✭
Please add a Registers menu item to Accounts menu in Quicken Mac. The new Registers menu item would have sub menus corresponding to the register Groups (e.g. Banking, Investing). The group sub-menu items would have sub-sub-menus corresponding to the register the Sub-Groups (e.g. Cash, Brokerage, etc.). The sub-group menus would each list the individual accounts contained in that sub-group. This would replicate the structure in the sidebar.

Why is this needed when you can just click the account in the sidebar? This will allow the user to use macOS System Preferences to assign keyboard shortcuts to navigate among accounts. It's a big time saver for those who like to keep their hands on the keyboard.

    I have Quicken but have been unable to navigate in it because I have no knowledge of what's available in the program to get the best use of it.  RickO's comment is right on!  I would like to enter "Expense" and go to a page like the checkbook page.  I'd like what I enter to ask me to choose an account to which I want the amount entered.  A list of expense accounts should come up and if the account is not listed to click on I should be able to add the new account at that time and the new amount show in that account. This would apply to cash also. Same for Income, and other types of entries including loans with the ability to record payments and ability to break down the payment to show interest payment as well as interest portion of the payment.  All of our transactions should post to budget as well to be compared to what we write into budget account so we can modify our planned budget.  There is more requirements that are not found in Quicken, by me.

    @Don, you are asking for a different UI interface...sort of an Easy Answers type data entry...that is different than the above idea. Consider creating your own IDEA post for that.

    Hello All,

    This Idea seems to have fallen stagnant and due to the age of the request and lack of User Votes/Comments, it will be archived within the next 7 business days.

    If you would like to see this Idea kept alive and considered for possible future implementation in Quicken, be sure to add your vote and a comment explaining how this Idea would be beneficial for you.

    More information, including steps to vote and how to submit your own Ideas for future product features/improvements, is also available here.

    Thank you,

    Keyboard shortcuts, or at the least the ability to create one's own is VERY useful. This would make it possible.

    I believe the Legacy Vote count needs to be updated on this. I was only able to record the ones with counts ≥20. Please update.

    I agree that this would be incredibly useful for navigation in Quicken for users comfortable with making their own keyboard shortcuts. Please don't archive this idea thread.
