Default for "Specify Lots"

Quicken currently only allows you to specify a First In/First Out or Last In/First Out default for investment transaction downloads. This is not very helpful. Users should be able to specify "Minimum Gain" or "Maximum Gain" as a default. The download and accepting process becomes very tedious for dozens of transactions since this functionality is not present.

    Thank you for your response, but you clearly did not read my comment. As I stated, Quicken allows you to specify either First In/First Out or Last In/First Out as the default share allocation, but it does not allow you to specify Minimum Gain or Maximum Gain. This creates a large problem when you have dozens of transactions to download and accept since you have to manually specify the lots for each and every trade. Please vote for my comment/suggestion.

    totally agree... it takes 4 clicks on every transaction to manually specify the lots to achieve minimum gain (or max gain if that's of your interest). 25 transactions? That's 100 clicks. Please add this.
