How to automatically pay online billers each month

Does the current Quicken with its Bill Manager allow putting online bills on autopilot such that I don't have to manually initiate the payment process for each monthly bill? The old Quicken Billpay did this beautifully for e-billers. I got an e-bill each month, and I could set it up so the bill was automatically paid on the due date each month without me having to do anything. Is this functionality available in Bill Manager? If it is, please help me find it. If this is not available - this is a HUGE DOWNGRADE from the old Quicken Billpay [Removed - Rant]

    Hello @Tihamer,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community with your question.

    Unfortunately, Quicken does not currently have the ability for automatic reoccurring payments.

    Therefore, I'd like to refer you to this active Idea post regarding this topic instead which is currently marked as "Planned". If you would like to be notified of updates on this feature as they become available, you can go ahead and bookmark the thread by clicking the bookmark icon on the top-right corner.

    Alternatively, if this is not quite what you are looking for and wish to submit your own request for something more specific, then you can create your own idea post

    Our Development and Product teams frequently use our idea posts in order to improve Quicken and implement new features requested by customers. 

    I hope this helps!

    How about using the billers' AutoPay, Direct Debit, PAC Draft, whatever they call it, automatic payment process?
    To automate the process and to avoid missed payments, I recommend you logon directly to each biller's website and authorize them to direct debit the next and all future payments from your checking account or a credit card. The biller will make an electronic debit on the due date and you don't have to worry about being late.
    When you receive the monthly statement notice, in Quicken just record a scheduled reminder that does not execute as an online payment into your account register. Do so on or before the Due Date and before you download transactions from the bank or credit card containing the debit transaction. That will allow Quicken to match your register transaction to the downloaded data and not cause any further issues.
