Quicken Software is UNABLE to calculate Dates

ALL Software Applications do Date Calculations as a matter course. How would they ever exist if they were unable to calculate 'Today', 'Tomorrow', 'Next Week', 'Next Month', etc.
ALL Financial Software Applications have their existence tied to Date Calculations.
They need this ability to make Interest Calculations, Return On Investment (ROI), Back-payments & Refunds; to name a few.
Intuit Software Support seems to deviate from this purpose by blaming the User Setting of 'Number of Days' of a future Bill or Payment.
Many other users over a LONG period of time have reported this to Intuit, but all that is offered in response is to blame the user, and to tell the user that their setting of 'n' days into the future is the cause of a repeating Bill to be switched from a Future to a Skipped status.
Is it possible for Intuit Software Engineers, once-and-for-all, to address & fix their date calculation software routine?
This would prevent the need for some other Customer Service person from offering non-sensical answers to simple questions.

    First off Intuit sold Quicken about 4 years ago, the new company is called Quicken Inc.
    Next you are talking to other users and the moderators of this forum, so other than treating your questions as rhetorical or a plea to help you find if what you are describing is in fact a bug, or user problem, and maybe suggest a workaround, this isn't a very good conduct to the Quicken developers.
    And no one is going to be able to speculate on if the developers are going to fix something or when.

    You can use Help -> Report a problem.  That goes to the development team, but has no feedback.

    If you describe in details of exactly what the problem is, maybe someone can help.

    @icanopit, please give a precise example of what date calculations you believe that Q is either doing incorrectly, or not at all.  And any workarounds that you've been performing because of this issue.

    Did you miss the part that you are talking to other users?

    And no one has blamed you for anything because we have no idea what you are talking about.

    NOT an example of mis-calculating dates, but rather of skipped reminders ... which is another issue altogether and is dealt with in the thread that you referenced.

    All of this could have been avoided if you had just posted in this thread in the first place or at least reference it.

    I have personally seen that problem once or twice, and never figured out what was causing it.
