    Hi Barbara,

    Once the rent receipt has been created and saved, you can then view the saved rent receipt by selecting the Properties & Tenants tab in the upper right corner and selecting "Rent Receipts" from the menu.  Select the receipt and it can be edited and printed, emailed or deleted from this window.

    You have control over which account the rent payment will post too on the enter Rent Payment screen.

    If you aren't sure which account was selected, I advise running a Cash Flow report, that will show you each Rent Payment transaction entered and which account the payment was posted to.  The Cash Flow report can be found on the Rent Property tab > Reports.  Or in the Reports menu at the very top of Quicken > Rental Property > Cash Flow.

    Thank you,

    Hello @Barbara Reynolds

    Thank you for the response and additional information, although I apologize that the issue was not understood completely when it was originally posted.

    After selecting to "save" the rent receipt, the rent payment should automatically save and record to the register, however it does not sound like that is the behavior you are experiencing.

    If you haven't already, please create a new data file (File > New Quicken File) and add a test property and tenant, does the payment record correctly after selecting to save the rent receipt?

    Or does it still have to be entered manually?  

    Thank you,

    Sarah
