ABILITY TO SEARCH DOWNLOADED TRANSACTIONS

AFTER I DOWNLOAD TRANSACTIONS, I PHYSICALLY LOOK AT MY RECEIPT AND HAVE TO FIND THAT TRANSACTION IN THE "DOWNLOADED TRANSACTION" LIST AND THEN I ACCEPT IT.
WELL, IT'S A CONSTANT SCROLLING UP AND DOWN, WHETHER YOU SORT IT BY DATE, AMOUNT OR PAYEE, THERE'S A LOT OF SCROLLING AND EYE SORENESS TO FIND THE TRANSACTION.
IF THERE WERE A SEARCH BOX FOR THE DOWNLOADED TRANSACTIONS, THEN YOU COULD TYPE THE AMOUNT, PAYEE OR DATE AND SEARCH FOR THE TRANSACTION THAT WILL EITHER BE IN AN ACCEPT OR MATCH STATUS.

PLEASE IMPLEMENT THIS!!!! IT WOULD HELP MY EYE TREMORS AND HELP MY BUSINESS RECONCILE FASTER!!! :)

    You might want to consider turning on "automatic transaction entry" mode.
    Edit -> Preferences -> Downloaded transactions -> Automatically add to banking registers

    Since all the transactions go directly into the register you can use the power of the register to do things like what you are asking for, including the search box that filters the register to what you type in.

    It uses a "review process" instead of an "accept process", but both can be used effectively if you understand how they work.

    Example:


    After marking that one reviewed, and also entering text to filter.


    Note that changing a value in a transaction will also mark it reviewed (blank status/blue dot column), as will reconciling.  I usually don't mark each transaction reviewed, instead I review them all and then reconcile to the online balance, which them marks them reviewed.  Note though do not use automatic reconcile with this option since it is only concerned about the amounts reconciling and will clear all the statuses before you can review the new transactions to make sure they are correct.

    But if one wants to check off receipts then marking each reviewed should work pretty well.  Note you can also sort by the Status/blue dot column to group all the New and New Match transactions together.

  • Thanks!! I see you indicated there was a "new match" to review too. That's good to know because I literally want to review each transaction, even if it matches.

    If you do decide to stay with the Downloaded Transactions tab, I find that it is best to "go with the flow". After accepting one transaction, select the next transaction from the top of the pile, as presented by Quicken. And be sure to have enabled the "Hide Accepted" button to make accepted transactions disappear from the view. Eventually you'll reach the bottom of the pile, and you're done with less scrolling and searching.

    Where do you go to enable the "Hide accepted" button? I don't see that.

    It'll be there, in the Downloaded Transactions tab, when you have at least one downloaded transaction waiting to be processed.

    Examples of New Match (note you have to expand the status column to see the text, not just the icon).




    And as for manual matching.  The procedure is to correct the amount of the transaction in the register so that it matches the downloaded transaction, and then click on the Uncleared status to bring up the manual match dialog, like this.

    I see it now, it is at the bottom left of the downloaded transaction area of Banking and Credit card registers. It is grayed out until you have accepted at least one transaction. I guess I have always focused on the buttons at the right.
