Create A Quick Link for "Ask a Question"

It is not intuitive for Community users to be able to find the "Ask a Question" button and that is frustrating for a lot of members, especially those who don't post very often.  Here is just one of the latest threads on this:  https://community.quicken.com/discussion/comment/20093737#Comment_20093737.
Would it be possible to create a Quick Link for this that will show up on every page that people won't have to search for?  It would make a lot of people very happy.

    I agree, I spent a half hour getting tech chat to tell me it's at the top of each page, which it is not. Quicken, make it easy.

    It used to be at the top of each page at one time.  When they made the change to the current locations some of the the help documentation regarding that was not updated.  I'm guessing Quicken Support was going off of that old documentation.  The change I've suggested here would help greatly to eliminate this issue.
    BTW, I can't tell if you clicked on blue voting button above, but if you haven't done that please do it so your vote gets recorded.

    Just select a category and then a sub-category.

    Screen shots would be very helpful. I have used Quicken for 20 years with nary an issue but lately I'm having trouble every time I download transactions so have had to join the community. I've spent a lot of time going back and forth between the Community and Google trying to figure this out and I'm still not sure.

    Click on the link included in my idea post at the top of this thread.  There are several different screen shots of how to be able to post a question in that thread.

    Seriously! can't find how to create a new thread, and I'm an IT professional!!!

    @gregteft - If you haven't already done so, please cast your vote above for this suggested improvement.
    Also, if you are still having difficulty finding how to create a new thread, look at the post immediately above your post.  The link there will take you to a thread with more information for doing that.  (FYI: The Community website is currently experiencing issues with some links and categories not being visible.  The Quicken Team is aware and working to fix this.)

  • On the right side of each transaction there is a "Save icon and Other actions icon." When I click on "Save" it becomes hidden by a Save notification that I have to sneak under to register the transaction. The same goes for "Other actions." Could you just label the the save icon to "Save" and Other actions icon to just "Changes." Maneuvering to get rid of these notifications to click on the icons is a pain!

    Just select a category and then a sub-category.
    and then look for the Ask a Question blue box at the top of the list of topics in that category. 

    What's confusing to people is that the Ask a Question link does not appear on the Home page, nor on a thread/post page; you have to know to navigate to the category or to the Recent Discussions page -- and the location of the link is different on each of those pages:

    On a category > Subcategory page, it's above the list of topics:



    But on the Recent Discussions page, it's on the left above the Quick Links section:




    And if the subtopic page you choose is one that allows submitting Ideas posts for other users to vote on, the link is labeled "New Idea" instead of "Ask a Question", even though it leads to the same submission page:



    It's easy to see why users, especially those who don't frequent this forum often, can be confused about where to go to create a post. It would be better if there were a consistent location on every page of the site, which is what this Idea thread is requesting.

    I still can't remember how to post a question. Everytime I come to this forum I have to stumble on the place that allows me to post. Please make this easier to find!
