Default account when entering transaction in mobile app

Unknown Member
edited December 2018 in Using the Mobile App
We track multiple accounts in Quicken, but when using the mobile app 99% of all transactions entered are to one specific account. The default account that appears when entering in the mobile app is a different one. Thus, every time I enter something in the mobile app, I have to change the account first.

Is there a way I can make the correct account appear first in the mobile app?
