Complaint about support tec[h] (Forgive me - I don't know if this is server delay or 1st Q. lost

silenussilenus Member
I have had extensive experience in both personal and business computing. I am often referred to a second level support person, but I have never before felt constrained to complain about my treatment by a support person. I had an interaction Quicken support on 9/27/2019. I know the name of the rep and approximate time of the call which was quite disappointing. The rep said “I know what I am doing.” but was clearly reading from a script and had NO idea how Quicken is supposed to work. What is worse she deflected questions about a secondary problem, was brusque and bordered on rude. Looking at things the following day I was able to fix them and things DID work as I expected. An e-mail to [email protected] bounced back. I do not want to supply extensive details here if it is not the correct place or my concerns will not be taken seriously. Exactly where should one e-mail, call, or snail mail about this?

    @Quicken Sarah I'll bring this to the attention of a Quicken moderator.

    Hello @silenus

    My name is Sarah and I am a Moderator in the Quicken Community and an official representative of the Quicken Support team.

    I appreciate your taking the time to share some details of your recent interaction with Support, although I apologize for any frustration or inconvenience experienced.

    I'm glad to hear that you were able to resolve the issue, but I would like to look into this matter further and review the case notes and call recording.

    Unfortunately I was not able to locate a recent case in our Support system associated with your Community Profile email address, I apologize.

    Were you provided with a Case Number for the contact?  If so, please let me know what the case number is.

    If not, I will reach out to you privately to request some additional information to help locate the case details.

    Please let me know, thank you.

    Sarah - Sorry, I thought this might cause some problems. The account is under [email removed]. I was given no case #. I do not monitor that address regularly. The rep's name was Barbara. The call was at 4-5 PM ET on 9/27. A QFX file would not import. Among other things she said this was because the register was up to date. The transactions should appear in a new window and it is up to the user to accept them or not. This is what happened when the problem was resolved. I won't go into my extensive computer training. It may or may not matter.

    Hi @silenus ,

    You forgot to include the telephone number that you dialed for Quicken Support.
    Right-Click on Quicken Sarah in the Gray Bar and click to open in a New Tab. In the new Window click on Message to Message Quicken Sarah with the telephone number, rather than posting on the board, unless it is a Quicken Support number.

    Forgive me Sarah. I see nothing that says "message." I called the "usual" Quicken support number (650) 250-1900 from :'(
