Missing details from Discover Card transaction

I just checked my manual download of Discover Card transactions and the information to download appears to be much "richer" than what Quicken is pulling in. Is it possible to set options anywhere to adjust what is downloaded?

Two big things I would like to change:

1) description from manual quicken more detailed and not trimmed, whereas the resulting quicken description appears to be trimmed at 32 characters length
2) category information is available, which I'd love to have downloaded into my memo field to assist when I categorize myself

    Hello @EvanstonDave

    Thank you for reaching out to the Quicken Community. We apologize you are having this difficulty. To clarify, there isn't really a way to set or change the options of how the file is read into Quicken. 

    Although, if you do have some specific payees you can fill out the memo and/or category information through the Memorized Payee List. 

    For more information on how to do this please visit the Help article linked below.

    Hope this helps. Please let us know of any other questions or concerns.

  • Perhaps what I want to do is ask Quicken for an enhancement request to the product. More and more vendors are categorizing transactions, and while I don't necessarily want to rely upon a vendor to categorize stuff, it would be nice to have this detail downloaded in a field (say a new "vendor categorization" field, for instance) to assist in just helping to determine what a charge was for. I have probably a few charges a month that I don't get clarification from my kids on what it was in time and this would help me to do so on my own.

    Would you know where I would go to post an enhancement request to the quicken software?
