Skip Bill icon (1 Legacy Vote)

The Bill Reminders screen (I'm using QMac 2017) has icons at the bottom that look like this:


It sure would be handy if Quicken added an icon that said "Skip." It's a minor inconvenience to do a right-click to choose "Skip this Instance" from the menu, but it would be nicer just to click on an icon. I seem to remember that QWin had this capability.

This feature has been implemented as of Version 5.12: Use the new convenient scheduled transaction toolbar to mark as paid, skip, or edit.

    Actually, with the new Bills & Income layout, I'm not sure that this idea even applies anymore. Unless I'm completely missing something, these icons are no longer at the bottom of the screen. Everything is now controlled by the Actions button.

    The three dots bring up this menu:

    So given the number of times I skip an instance (not many), it would make the screen too crowded to have more options added to the button. Therefore, I'm happy with letting this idea die.

    Since this idea was about being able to skip an instance from a transaction register (rather than the Bills & Income screen), with the current interface you simply double click the scheduled transaction and it brings up a small menu underneath ... and that menu has a Skip this Instance button:

    So I think this idea could be marked as "Implemented" and closed, right?

    Sounds fine to me. I never even noticed it on the register, since I hide all future occurences of bills. I just add them from the Bills & Income tab, which is where my original idea was referring to. The screen layout has changed since then.
