New connectivity problems - First National Bank of Omaha

Matt Comer
Matt Comer Member ✭✭✭
I have a credit card from First National Bank of Omaha (the MGM Rewards card) which has been connected and downloading transactions just fine, but suddenly cannot connect. Quicken wants me to "fix the problem" or "reconnect" (I get different option buttons seemingly each time I try to connect) but any attempt to reconnect fails. I can login to their online site just fine. It looks like Quicken is setup for "Quicken Connect" (I am on a Mac, so Express Web Connect for everyone else I guess).

The bank has been in the process of rolling out a "new online experience" and I cannot help but feel that this is somehow related.

Is Quicken aware of this issue?

    Oh, and I did do the "report a problem" thing inside Quicken and let it attach logs and so forth. Is this the right way to get attention to the problem? Do those "report a problem" submissions honestly get reviewed?

    Error msg says... "Sorry. We encountered an error. It's not your fault". I've more than 15 cleared transactions on FNBO website. 'Reset Account' didn't solve the problem. 'Deactivated' and can no longer setup connection with FNBO even when choosing the Express Web Connect.

    Hello @Matt Comer

    I am sorry to hear about this issue with connectivity that you are experiencing. Thank you for asking about this here on the Quicken Community. 

    Are there any error codes associated with the messages you are seeing? Also, navigate to the Account List in the left-hand panel of the Quicken window and click on the affected account(s). Next, go to the Settings button in the lower left-hand corner of the screen, denoted by the 'gear' icon; after clicking this, navigate to the Downloads tab. Does a button labelled Connect Account appear, here? I want to be sure that the account is, in fact, currently connected.

    @Dominic

    I do apologize that you appear to be affected by this issue, as well. Could you also navigate to the Downloads tab in Settings using the instructions above and provide the Connection Type that is currently in use to link your account(s) to online banking services? I am curious if you are making use of the same Quicken Connect type, as well.

    I look forward to your responses. 

    Thank you,

    Quicken Jared

    I have encountered the same issue - starting around May 7 or later. I followed the instructions from @Quicken_Jared and the account still appears to be connected (no "Connect" button on the Settings-Download page). I attempted to reset the connection as @yoda7th did but that failed to reconnect. I'm on Quicken for Mac 6.7.0.

    I just sent a report with the logs. I also wonder if it has to do with them changing their web EXPERIENCE. If you log into their site you can use the new layout or "Switch to classic experience"!!!

    I just reported this issue to FNBO as well. It's disappointing that an issue can go on for more than 72hours and both Quicken & FNBO technical team has no clue that connectivity between them has failed. This is clearly a technical glitch on either team and a telemetry-heartbeat would have capture this failure easily. I'm dropping a note to Quicken's 'OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT'. Leadership should be aware that it is not acceptable for customers to have connectivity problem for more than 72hours in this internet era.

    And here's the reply from 'OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT'... only consolation is having this issue acknowledged.
    "Thank you for contacting Quicken. My name is Daniel and I’m reaching you on behalf of Quicken’s Office of the President regarding your recent message. We are aware of the issue with First National Bank of Omaha. At the moment we no have an ETA on when it will be solved."

    @yoda7th In fact, many connectivity issues take more than 72 hours until they are fixed.  A simple ping isn't enough to surface many connectivity issues. Is the bank doing maintenance and blocking Intuit (the company which runs connectivity for Quicken)? Has the bank made any changes to its servers, login protocols, or website? (In this case, it sounds like the answer is yes.) If so, did they give advance notice to Intuit, as they are supposed to when changes are rolled out? And if so, at the time Intuit becomes aware of the problem, are there 5, 10, 30 or more other outages at this given moment which Intuit has ahead of this one in their queue? And when they get to it, is it a quick fix of the Intuit login script, or did the change at the bank require more significant changes from Intuit? Or does Intuit need to work with the bank to mutually get the issue resolved?

    So the reality is that many connectivity issues take more than a few days until they are resolved, especially when a bank has changed their website and/or security protocols. With more than 10,000 financial institutions to support, there can be dozens of new connectivity problems every day. It's unfortunate, but that's the reality.

    I can report that this issue appears to be resolved for me. I was able to reconnect and transactions were downloaded.
