    When working in the Mobile App, be sure to always sync your data from the Desktop version first to ensure that you have the most up to date information.

    Once you've signed into the Mobile App and selected the data file, you will see the "Home" screen with a breakdown of the available Account Types to view or edit.


    To view an account:
      1. Tap the Account Type, i.e. "Checking"
      2. A list of all synced accounts of that type will be visible; tap the account you wish to view.


    Online Balance vs. Today's Balance vs. Projected Balance

    At the top of each account, one of 3 balances will appear.

      Online Balance - this is the balance as shown by your Financial Institution and includes any pending transactions.  Please note, since this balance includes pending transactions, it may be different from the running or ending balances.

      Today's Balance - this is the balance in Quicken on today's date, otherwise known as the "Current Balance" and may include any manually entered transactions.

      Projected Balance - this balance includes any scheduled transactions that aren't already entered into the register.

      2. Find the transaction and tap it to open it.
