Request for One Time Scheduled Transaction in Mac

An addition to the frequency would be a simple one-time scheduled transaction. This option is available for Quicken for Windows, requires clunky work around for Mac.

    I think that you can use any frequency (yearly, monthly, etc.) and have the payment end on the date it starts. Is that clunky?

    Maybe I'm missing something? Why not just make a single future-dated transaction?

    Rick, you're brilliant. I was responding to the question, but unfortunately not the actual problem. I agree that going into the register and just adding a transaction with a future date is the best way.

    Compared to the Windows version, yes.

    The Mac scheduling dialog has the option for one-time events - see screen shot.

    Which is really no different than creating a single future-dated transaction (except that you get a clock symbol in the status column).

    The main difference is that the "Scheduled Transaction" will foiiow your settings for displaying future transactions; e.g., Next 30 Days.

    But if it's a one-time event, then there are no future transactions, right? Or am I being dense and missing something?

    I am thinking about a one-time payment that is due down the road; e.g. 5 mos from now. 
    I normally have my regisyers set to display the next 30 days. The scheduled transaction will follow this preference.
    Entering as a regular transaction in the register does not follow this preference - it displays immediately.

    That makes sense.
