Windows Canada R40.xx Release


The latest Quicken Windows Canada release R40.23 is now being made available in staged release format to a limited group of users and will slowly roll out to all customers.

What’s New:

  • A new dashboard is available with snapshots including Top Spending Categories, Top Payees, Uncategorized Transactions, Recent Transactions, Investment Top Movers, Portfolio Value, Net Worth, Income & Expense, and Bills, Income, & Transfer. This dashboard will be the default for new customers.
  • Added a Don't update memo when downloading option for customers who do not want their memos overwritten. The option is available under Account Details → Online Services.
  • For investment customers, the graph on the Security Detail View now optionally includes indicators for when the number of shares of the security increased or decreased.

What’s Improved:

  • Copy and Backup File support has been updated to prevent connection problems.
  • Copy command in Quicken will now create a copy that has all the online services disconnected. This is useful when creating an archive file you don’t intend to update in the future via download, or when you’d like to use the new file as a “template” or starting point for a new, separate Quicken file.
  • If you only want to create a copy of your file for troubleshooting purposes or to experiment with a new feature, you can also make a copy, then reconnect any accounts you need, and proceed to use the copy.
  • If you want to make a complete Backup of your file to possibly restore in the future, use the Backup option instead. A backup will not have connected services disabled when you open the backup via the Restore Backup
  • Please review this help document if you have questions.
  • Updated the Customize Action Bar interface to allow users to apply changes globally as well as to an individual account.
