How do you enter a CD/Annuity account into Q? [Edited]

EEProf Member ✭✭
I just bought a 3-year annuity, which is basically a CD, and see no way to enter into Q other than as a cash account that I have to manually update. All suggestions appreciated.

    Where is that annuity held?  Does that financial institution provided downloads into Q?
    What does the annuity hold? Do you see just the value ... or the individual holdings?
    What are the tax ramifications of this annuity, for monies in and out?
    And, I'd probably hold it in an investment account rather than a cash account ... because there is no way to download into a cash account.

    OK, I figured it out. I still think that Q should have an 'Annuity/CD' account option.
