Quicken hangs indefinitely when syncing accounts after upgrading to 6.7.0

Has anyone else run into a problem with Quicken hanging indefinitely (spinning color wheel) when syncing accounts? Everything was working fine until I upgraded to 6.7.0.

I have to Force Quit every time.

    The latest upgrade is a hot mess for me. "Not responding" messages. Renaming from pre-upgrade backups. Rebooting the Mac twice. I can't find a phone number for technical support, even from the "Call Us" link.

    @jfrefs The phone number only shows up in the Call Us link during the hours phone support is open, which is 8 am to 8 pm Eastern time, Monday through Friday. (Text chat support is available during those hours on the weekend.)

    For future reference, the phone number for Quicken Support is 650-250-1900.

    I called into customer service at 650-250-1900. The CS rep had me create a new Quicken file with my checking account. After I synchronized accounts I had the same problem -- spinning color wheel that never goes away -- app is not responsive, have to force quit. The CS rep encouraged me to wait for the next Quicken update and hope that the problem is fixed in the next update.

    having exact same issue as all describe above. Must "force quit" the unresponsive app EVERY time.... and every time, I send a "report". (as if anyone cares or does anything about it?)

    It seems odd that this is happening to a small number of Quicken Mac users. It’s clearly not widespread, but it’s clearly not just one person’s data file, either. I wonder if we can figure out what the users experiencing this might have in common (and different from others who are not experiencing the problem).

    What version of macOS is everyone running?

    Do you have accounts (current or closed) in non-US currencies? (A recent syncing problem apparently relates to differing currencies.)

    Are any of your accounts Direct Connect? If so, can you try to update one account rather than all accounts? Does that work, or does it hang?

    well, I am running MacOS 12.3.1 and Quicken for Mac 6.7.0. I have 3 different XXX.Quicken data files (personal and 2 different businesses), none have foreign currencies and all 3 have at least one Direct Connect account. Testing with the simplest data file (only a single checking account and 2 credit card accounts), it does not seem to "let" me update individual accounts? Whether I try from the "account status" window or from the "Accounts" tab (selecting "update selected account"). However, when I click the "circular arrow" (update all) icon at the top of the left column (accounts pane), THAT is when I get the unresponsive "spinning beach ball" and must Force Quit. I have the same issue with ALL THREE data files.

    GOOD/BAD news? So... in the above data file, which has a single checking account, 2 credit cards and no investments, I changed the checking account from Direct Connect to Quicken Connect. It downloaded MANY "old" transactions BUT did not freeze! However, now neither of the credit card accounts will update, even though they were updating just fine prior to changing the connection type of the checking account??????? WTF? Clicking the "update all" does nothing and clicking the "update" buttons for the individual accounts in the Account Status window does nothing. (nor does Account > Update All accounts from the menu bar).

    So... by changing one account from "direct connect" top "Quicken connect"... now NOTHING WILL UPDATE, AT ALL. Not even the checking account, again.

    Changing BACK to Direct Connect updates the checking account... but also brings back the spinning ball/unresponsive application problem. It also no longer updates the credit card accounts, either.

    So..... "Direct Connect" appears to be part of the problem but not the whole problem?

    I had to CC's that were direct connect. I changed to Quicken connect and it seems to be working. I will update after a few test runs.

    erm... That would be "two CC's"

    Since upgrading to version 6.7.0, every time I download transactions Quicken hangs. I have to force quit and reopen Quicken. The transactions are downloaded, but it's annoying.
