custom start date for budget

Is there a way OR will there ever be a way to create a budget with a specific start date? i.e. the 25th of every month

    Probably not.  You can currently a budget based on a calendar year or from a specific month but in both cases the start date is the 1st of the month.  The following is from the help file of Q2020:

    • You can define a fiscal year that begins on any month of the year. When you do so, any yearly or quarterly preferences in Quicken are offset based on the first month of your fiscal year.
    • For example, if your fiscal year started in April 2016, and it's now January 2017, select April in the Start budget on field. Quicken then considers April 1, 2015, to March 31, 2016, as last year.
    • To base Quicken's yearly or quarterly budget options on January 1 to December 31, select January in the Start budget on field.
