Bill Reminder - Columns need add'l fields to avoid confusion

When I look at some reminders where the payee is the same company for instance.
1. Have many properties and paying property taxes where the payee is all the same - can't when of the bill reminders goes to that property.
2. Same issue when paying utilities, maybe multiple credit cards to the same payee.

So what like to see is allowing us to add the following fields to the screen if we choose: Memo, Notes and the bank account. The bank account field shows on on of the tabs but not the other.

    Until there's a solution to this issue, how about creating distinct Payee Names for each property, e.g.,
    • ACME Insurance {1313 Elm St}
    • ACME Insurance {1315 Elm St}
    • etc.
    Adding text surrounded by {squiggly brackets} to the Payee Name makes it unique everywhere in Quicken. However, if you print checks with Quicken, this text will not print in the "Pay to the order of" field, so you still need a proper Memo field.

    If you are using the Bill and Income Reminders view in a customized page under the Home tab you can add the bank account name to the columns of the view. To do so click the gear icon in the view and select "Show accounts in Bills list".
    Adding the Memo field to this view would be a good idea.
    A similar idea has been asked here before, but it is asking about the more modern view under the Bills and Income tab.

    Locate the big blue box near the top of this webpage (or page 1 for long discussions) and click the "Up" triangle under the voting count.
    Wait a moment for the vote count to be registered and updated before you continue.
    The little triangle changes from grey to black when you have registered your vote.

    Thanks for the work around. It will help a lot.

    I would like to see the ability to add add'l columns like the registers so one can sort, group, filter them if one has a lot of reminders.

    Also Need a way to see without clicking on scheduled transaction is on auto. Add another column. Showing when it will be automatically entered. Like 1 day or two days, etc.

    Please add click sortable columns to the Bill & Income\Bills, Income & Transfers tab. With the retirement of Bill Pay this dialog is core to use electronic payments. Click-sortable columns wouldn't totally resolve the clunky design but IMHO it would certainly help. This is one of the few, if not the only product feature dialogs that's missing that basic column click-sort functionality.

    Isn't that idea already implemented? I mean, the list by Biller Name or by Due Date shows the transaction's Memo field as a 2nd or 3rd line. To see that much detail in the Stack View you need to select a reminder for it to show up as the large check-like image. Only the Calendar view including a specific day's popups does not have room enough for this much detail.
    The request to show if a reminder is on "auto-enter" is implemented. "(Auto enter)" shows up under the amount in the list by Biller Name. Also available in the Stack view for the selected item in the enlarged check image view.
