Ive been using "savings" as my account type for cd's since 1994 since i started using quicken, and i know alot of people use investment securitys as the type, would be nice to have an actual cd category where you can just enter the rate and maturity date to be able to have a nice chart with the rates and dates and an average rate maybe for those of us who like to ladder their cd's.

    You don't really want separate accounts for each of your CD's.  Using a bond type security, in an investment account, is a much better option.
    That will let you input both interest rate and maturity date.

    That is sort of what you get treating them as individual securities in an investment account. Maybe not a ‘nice chart’, but certainly the ability to look as t both individually and in aggregate.
