How do I start iPhone version, add my Quicken accounts, know exactly which I synced, etc.

Gotom Member ✭✭
I just d.l. iPhone ver. - am asked which accounts I've synced (from computer I assume) - am looking at several names on computer but can't tell exactly which one - is there a way to be sure?
Then, if told on iPhone that no accounts have been added how do I go about adding them from computer? Thanks, Tom

    Hi @ Gotom ,

    See this Artilce: https://getsatisfaction.com/quickencommunity/topics/add-your-quicken-information-to-your-posts-plus-...

    Before you can add them you your iPhone, you need to Sync them from the Desktop version of Quicken to the Web.

    OK have to face it - I don't know how to either sync my accounts to the web or to add them - whatever "add" means . . but I know it must be done as the iPhone version can't proceed without adding one.

    How do I take my Quicken account online so I can sync with the mobile version, which tells me I haven't "added" any accounts . . . ?

    You are required to purchase a subscription to the desktop version of Quicken, create accounts there and then sync them for accounts and transactions to appear on your mobile device or Quicken Web.

    Neither Quicken Mobile or Quicken Web is a stand alone app.  It REQUIRES you to purchase the desktop subscription version, install and sync from there.

    Is it Quicken for Mac? If so, click menu Quicken > Preferences, then the Mobile, Web & Alerts tab. Make sure the sync switch is on, then choose the accounts you want to sync in the pane to the right.
