Unfortunately the tried and true method of paying vendors via Direct Connect has ceased for me at Chase. As Sherlock recommended in an earlier comment exchange, I went online at Chase to pay invoices due in the next few days. Unfortunately, only payments posted to the Chase account are reflected on Quicken now, and I no longer have the benefit of seeing payments scheduled for future, which was a very valuable feature.
FYI - I was receiving the 301 error - so I just edited my payment transaction from SEND to just blank (so it would not try to connect to Chase) and then performed the Update Now on the Chase Account - worked fine... no 301 Error.So, it is definately related to trying to SEND payments to Chase for Bill Payment...Will try the SEND every day....

For the folks that are scheduling bills through quicken to be initiated by Chase, there still has been no clear announcement by Quicken if this ability will be implemented under the new connection methods or not. Best they say is ... "will contact you folks later with info" All they address is basic downloads of transactions. My ability to schedule stopped working a couple of days ago as well with the aforementioned database error. You would think Quicken folks would make some announcement on a service of theirs that is currently failing
I hear that that Direct Connect is gone 200% but will a different method be coming down the pipes to allow that functionality? Also, does this effect Chase's Billmanager product and its ability to draw funds out of chase? I assume Billmanager makes the actual payment.

Nope - to just cutoff Bill Payment without any other info.... and now we get the OL-301 Error So - the FI list still has "Payment" - and the "announcement" indicated things were happening in September....and here we are in July - Right now, you don't have do to anything. The final changeover
for these accounts will be at the end of September, however, in early
August you will have the opportunity to manually transition to the new
EWC+ connection. We will send you more information on how to do this

RE Chase, it's clear Chase is de-supporting Direct connect and EWC (Express web connect) entirely and that does not effect any other bank visa vi quicken. But Quicken alludes to something called EWC+ and transitioning to it from EWC. Cannot find anything anywhere on what EWC+ is and how it is different from EWC,
I'm still able to use Chase Bill Pay in Quicken. Just made 3 payments. It's strange how it works for some and not others. You would think everyone using Chase Bank Bill Pay in Quicken would be equally affected if Chase has shutdown that feature. I would assume it's all or nothing on the Chase side but it appears their shutdown process is incremental since not all users are affected at this time.
Just an observation. I see in this thread and other threads I have followed posters are making reference to Intuit. What does Intuit have to do with Quicken? Aren't they now both separate companies ever since Intuit spun off Quicken. It's been several years since that occurred. Am I missing something?
From what I understand the "new approach" EWC+ is not yet available. At this time the only alternative to Direct Connect for Chase is EWC which is not exactly the same as EWC. However, if you switch to EWC you will lose the Chase Bank Bill Pay Feature which it sounds like you are using as am I. I assume when EWC+ does becomes available a new connection method I assume called Express Web Connect + will appear as an option in Quicken and "Express Web Connect" will go away. I set up a test file using EWC with my Chase accounts to get a preview of what the EWC+ experience will be like. As I expected I lost the Chase Bill Pay feature and if I make a transaction from Chase today it won't immediately download to Quicken since EWC will only collect your Chase data on a nightly basis. So those transactions should be available the following day. Since I have no experience with EWC I can't say what impact EWC will have on transactions that occur on the weekend. Does EWC do nightly data collections on the weekend as well? For example, currently using Direct Connect if I use Bank Bill pay on the Chase website to pay a bill and then do a One Step Update in Quicken the transaction gets downloaded immediately. Not so with EWC since it only collects the data nightly.
