Quicken doesn't ask for amount of interest earned when reconciling deposit accounts

I've used Quicken for a couple decades but took a brief break from it for a number of years and just started using it again last year. I have the Home, Business & Rental Property version.

If I recall correctly, when reconciling a deposit account, there was a time in the past when the initial "Reconcile" window for a deposit account would ask for the user to input the amount of interest earned for that statement cycle in addition to the other fields such as "Ending statement date," "Prior balance," and "Ending balance."

Am I remember right that this was a normal feature of Quicken in the past? And if so, why doesn't the reconcile process include a field for filling in the amount of interest earned during the statement period?

    My reconcile function certainly shows a place to input interest.  When you do TOOLS, Account List and click EDIT adjacent to the account ... what shows as the "Account Type"?

    The ability to add transactions in the Reconcile Details window should only be provided for Banking registers not set up to import transactions from a financial institution: open the register, press Ctrl + Shift + E, and select the Online Services tab
