Quicken for Windows needs an Undo feature

For an app that has been on the Windows platform for as long as Quicken, it is incredible that there is no Undo feature. Intuit, please add this long overdue feature to the application.

    Intuit hasn't owned Quicken in many years.  The new company is called Quicken Inc.

    And this request is far from "new", but also has never been implemented because Quicken is stuck with a very old database that doesn't allow for such a feature.

    If you mean a feature to undo a recent update (like today's update to R39.17), I would fully support that. I spent hours on the phone today because of an issue caused by the most recent update today, and if I could have just rolled back to the previous version, I would have been able to save those hours.

    Rolling back to a different version of Quicken is completely different thing than undo for data that has been entered, which is what this idea is for.

    Agreed about needing an "undo last entry" option. If Quicken can't undo, how about creating a "find last entry" option? My fanger accidentally hit the enter key when I was in a report and it took me back to my register with a caching sound indicating an entry was made. But now I cannot find what was entered to delete or edit it.

    How about adding an "Undo" function. Just about every other program I use (including the browser I'm using now) has some type of "Undo" function. If you hit the Enter key while adding a transaction the cursor automatically goes to the date field. If you start typing you enter a bogus date and it's difficult to find where the transaction went. A simple "Undo" function would let you start all over again without having to search for your mistake and correcting it.

    If you are in the process of entering multiple transactions in a row over a wide range of dates, it might be best if you temporarily changed the register sort order to By Order Entered. (Actions gear icon / Sorting Options / by order entered)
    This ensures that recently entered transactions stay on the current register page, right next to the new transaction entry line. So it's easy to review your recently added transactions, regardless of their transaction date.
    When done recording transactions, please do not forget to change the register back to show transactions sorted by Date. Just click the Date column header once.
  • Please add an "undo" function to Quicken for Windows. Several times already, especially when I was using the keyboard to scroll down, I accidentally changed some entries (including some that had already been reconciled), and I had to search for the correct information and manually change them back.

    Please check Edit / Preferences / Notify.
    All entries should be checked except the 4th line (Run a reconcile report) which IMHO is optional.
    This might prevent a few of the unintended consequences.
