Quicken for Mac v6.6.1 Released

There are several changes in v6.6.1 that help you to be more efficient when using Quicken Mac.  These are the highlights on a few changes:


Payee Name for a transfer

Now, you can successfully change a Payee name to something you can easily recognize, and it will stay unchanged after syncing action is performed on your Quicken Mac data.


Investment accounts

If you’ve been using a companion app with your Quicken Mac, you probably noticed that Investment accounts are not synced after you reset dataset.  Now, with this release, you can reset your dataset and successfully use a companion app to view the updated investment data.   


New Investment accounts (for customers with Quicken Mac Canada only)

You can set the correct account type for your investment accounts instead of tracking them as “Other”.


Scheduled transactions

When you create a scheduled transaction, a New Bill for example, the reminder is properly recorded for the Payment account.  Once this transaction gets marked as “Paid”, it becomes a manual transaction even if the Quick Pay/Check Pay is not enabled on the Payment account.


QFX import

If you need to import multiple QFX files, now you can do it without quitting your Quicken Mac app after importing one file.  All QFX files are getting processed, and all their transactions get imported.  Quicken will alert you if you if there is a file that has already been processed and the import action will be blocked.


There are other small enhancements in this release, and we fixed some bugs that have been reported by Quicken Mac users as well. 

As always, please let us know of any issues you run into with the 6.6.1 release. And let us know what you like or don't like in the way we implemented various features and functionalities.  We're listening and making changes based on your feedback and suggestions.  We can't monitor all the forum posts but will be looking at this forum, so please share your feedback here.


Thanks,
The Quicken Mac Team.

    @""Quicken Victoria" can you (1) please define "a companion app"? Do you mean Quicken Mobile app or Quicken on the web? Or something else?

    (2) let us know specifically whether the massive bug with Quicken Cloud being On causing years old transactions to appear or change and transfers to break has had a specific fix for it. So far a single person reports that Quicken Mac version 6.6.1 fixed the issue for them when is was happening in version 6.6.0. (This is the issue referenced in, among many, https://community.quicken.com/discussion/comment/20253698#Comment_20253698 and https://community.quicken.com/discussion/comment/20253699#Comment_20253699.) That is, was the issue identified and a specific code change made to solve the issue vs. changes that are hoped to solve the issue.

    Also, can you add a link to the full release notes and full list of bugs fixed in version 6.6.1? It would be good to be able to review them before updating from 6.5 given the corruption of Quicken files that has been occuring with Quicken Cloud enabled for so many customers.

    Yes, in Quicken parlance, "companion app" refers to the Quicken Cloud-connected mobile app and the web interface.

    What is posted above is similar to what's in the official release notes, which you can always find here:

      https://www.quicken.com/support/quicken-mac-release-notes

    The release notes never detail every bug, tweak and change made in any release. some are small, some are highlighted technical, and they don't want to overwhelm users with a long list, so they release the major issues they think users will want to be aware of.
