Is there a limit as to how frequently my accounts can be refreshed/updated?

I typically update my accounts once per day, early morning. Sometimes they do not update with transactions I know have cleared my bank(s) the previous day. When I try to refresh an hour or two later the refresh button only spins a couple times and stops. Is there a limit on how many times per day my accounts can be updated? And if so, I am curious as to why Quicken imposes those limits.

TYIA!

    There are no limits on how many times you can update your accounts. But there may not be anything fresh to download beyond once per day. If your accounts use Quicken Connect, they are connecting to an aggregation server which in turn downloads from your financial institution -- a process which happens once a day, typically in the overnight hours. If your accounts are Direct Connect, they are connecting directly to a financial institution's server, so they can pull in transactions in real time -- but some financial institutions only update posted transactions once a day.
