One step update with two-factor authentication

Can I configure One Step Update with my accounts if I have two-factor authentication enabled at the financial institutions? It doesn't seem possible. Windows 10 1809 and Quicken 2019.

    Quicken does not necessarily obtain your account data from the financial institution using the same authentication method.  If you haven't already, you may want to review: https://www.quicken.com/support/how-quicken-connects-your-bank

    Some institutions allow you to toggle two-factor authentication for 3rd-party apps like Quicken. You set this at the financial institution website. I have them set up to 2P authenticate when I login through a browser, but not through Quicken.

    P.S. I'd like to see an enhancement to one-step update where I can set up multiple update groups. For instance, I update all my Banking registers in the morning and I update all my Investing registers in the evening. It would save time to have this pre-setup in groups instead of updating individual registers or checking/unchecking the ones I want updated.
