Sending a suggestion to the Quicken development team

I subscribe to Quicken Premier for Mac and am a long time Quicken for Mac user since '93. I am a retired developer and in the early days I would sometimes find myself talking with a Quicken Mac/tech/programmer and help them solve transaction downloads errors (from a certain financial institution) in real time. The point is, I sometimes have useful suggestions. Those days are past now, but I occasionally have minor suggestions I'd like to pass on without looking for any reply. I see no FEEDBACK link in Quicken or their website. Does it exist? I prefer not to fill out a lengthy contact us form since I don't need a reply, but I will if I have to.

MY SUGGESTION (FYI) - I wish they'd add a 6 week and 2 month scheduling option for recurring bills. It would fill in that gap between monthly and quarterly. I have a recurring bill for every 6 weeks, which I must set to monthly and remember to modify or skip upcoming bills that are out of sync, but that is getting old and requires looking back for the last payment and also at a calendar to get it right.

    Actually, the good news is that there's an easy way to do this. It's just a little hidden. (And I have been trying — unsuccessfully so far! — to lobby the developers to change it to make it more intuitive. ;) )

    On the Schedule screen, click the little caret icon to the left of the starting date to display more scheduling options. In this case, you'd set the transaction to Weekly at the top, and then enter it to repeat every 6th week:

     

    You can see in my example that on the right side, the schedule reflects a six week interval.
