Update on Citibank download issue [edited]

I thought that I should do an update on this issue.

On June 2 last year, I wrote a six page letter, with screenshots, to the Citibank Chief Executive Officer, Global Consumer Banking. I got a letter back in response to set up a call with someone from the "Executive Response Unit." The person I spoke with said that their web team agreed with the issues I raised, which are described in this discussion: https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7856843/multiple-issues.

He was very nice, but he would not commit to any sort of a fix! Several months later, seeing no fixes to the issues I raised, i wrote a second letter. I got a reply letter that took several paragraphs to say nothing at all. These download issues continue.

A new issue is that sometimes, intermittently, I can do a single download for all my accounts, using the older format to select "Current Page Views" or additional accounts. if I use this older format, Quicken doesn't automatically recognize the account number for the download. instead, it prompts me to either create a new account or to manually match up the downloaded transactions with an existing account. More steps, more wasted time.

Additionally, not q Quicken issue as such, sometimes on the account page the link to download statements does not not appear. This is like playing whack-a-mole in reverse.

Is there any way to induce Citibank to perform proper software quality control on their website?

    Any reason you are not using direct connect as your download method?  I have one Citi branded credit card and direct connect works flawlessly after going through the authorization process.

    Markus1957,

    When I tried to do direct connect, it did not work with all my various different Citibank accounts. I guess I should try again. If I have an issue with any one account, then I'll post a question.

    So I just tried to set up direct connect, and it bombed. I'm starting a separate t thread.
