Glad they finally setup a way to pay bills on specific dates other than immediately but we still need the ability to set up and pay fixed or repeating payments in Quicken Bill Manager

Recurring Payments are currently not available but this option is in the works. We know this is a big concern to users, and we're working on implementing this feature so we can get this to you as quickly as possible.

    I have discovered that I cannot convert a "placeholder" transaction to a payment transaction in my register. If I cannot schedule a repeating payment and I cannot edit a reminder transaction, that is a significant loss of functionality that I use often.

    The entire Bill Manager feature is way over designed. I wish I could just manage when and what I pay like the old BillPay. Date, amount done. As many times in the future as I want. That actually seems like the base, simple approach. Why go to the extra work of adding an arbitrary constraint that only one payment can be scheduled at a time.

    Quicken Bill Manager needs to have at least the same functions as Quicken Bill Pay and until it does Quicken Bill Pay should not end on August 31, 2020. For me, primarily, its repeating payments. I cannot believe I will have to go back to manually making every repeating payment I have.

    Make no mistake about it, Quicken Bill Manager is a serious step backward, and no matter how much you talk about this being fixed in the future (you have had months and months already) - canceling the current system that works BEFORE you get the new Bill Manager working is ridiculous.

    Even worse, Bill Manager has major bugs. I have Check Pay payments that were created by copying a previous Check Pay transaction. My register shows them as all being check number 0, with an estimated delivery date of 6/22, a payment date of 7/28, and an initiated date of 6/17. I did the copy and paste transaction in late July. I have no idea if these payments went out; there is no way to verify a payment was sent; Support cannot tell if they were actually sent; if they were sent, then they were sent in error - I only wanted the transaction copied without the Check Pay part occurring because I wrote manual checks by hand; and I cannot stop pay them without a check number.
  • Bill manager lacks -
    Scheduling payments on a future date certain, and
    Repeating payments
    Both of these were essential features to Bill Pay. This is an enormous and intolerable regression.

    I am in the process of weaning myself off of Quicken Bill Pay be the end of August here when Quicken Bill Pay is discontinued. I have made the transition with the exception of my recurring/repeating online payments. I have assumed this feature was already built into Quicken Bill Manager only to find out this morning that it is not yet available. I am seriously surprised and shocked you have not yet incorporated this into Quicken Bill Manager before you are shutting down Quicken Bill Pay. And, from reading this post, I can see you have many others who are at least as upset as I am. But, I'm glad to hear that you have this "in the works" and just hope we won't have to wait long for this valuable feature.

    Agree with all of the above, plus I'm capped at 3 check pays per month? After having unlimited online payment capacity for years? So I'm supposed to go back to manually writing checks and stamping envelopes for my dozens of payees every month? Incredible.

    Not being able to set up recurring payments is a major headache for me. I want to be able to set up in quicken where it automatically sets up one time to make recurring monthly payments and the bill gets paid monthly with no other input from me
  • Couldn't agree more. This deficiency in Bill Manager is a major headache.

    If is a very common thing to make middle-of-the billing cycle payments to certain billers, (example, credit card accounts or mortgage holders). As a practice, I have always paid my major credit card twice a month, even though they bill only once each month. This is because of twice each month paydays. Quicken online billpay rejects the middle of the month payment because the billers online system indicates the possibility of a duplicate payment. Instead of an outright refusal to permit an out-of-cycle payment, I suggest exploring the possibility of permitting the payment after a warning message is accepted. I know the biller will accept the electronic payment because I am still able to post an electronic payment from my bank billpay service. This would also fix a potential issue where an ebill is not received from the biller for the cycle.

    Striving to make Quicken better.

    I still need the ability to set up and pay fixed or repeating payments in Quicken Bill Manager for Check Pay vendors (eg. Monthly Homeowners Association dues). It is my understanding that recurring payments in Bill Manager were in development. There has been no status update on this. I would like some status update.

    Recurring payments functionality has been promised for over a year now. What is the planned implementation date?
