please do NOT retire the Overview tab (Q Mac)

This morning I installed the update to Quicken Premier Version 6.10.0 and encountered the following warning:
'The “Overview” tab and its contents will be replaced by the “Dashboard” tab in a future release.'
The 'Upcoming Bills & Income' section of the Overview tab is absolutely CRITICAL to the way I manage the receipt of income and payment of bills! Please the do NOT retire the Overview tab and is contents.

    The Bills & Income Tab > Projected Balances screen is pretty much the same (but more) info than the Overview > Upcoming Bills & Income. In fact, clicking on a line in the latter takes you to the former.

    That said, you may want to comment here:

  • RickO: Thanks, I was unaware of that. The Projected Balances screen can be configured to be similar to, but still not the same as, what I need. I guess I could live with it if I have no choice but I'd still much rather have the current Overview > Upcoming Bills & Income. I'll post at the other discussion as you suggest.

    RickO, depends on how you have your accounts set up. For me, clicking in the Overview takes me to the register for that account. If you have the account set to next instance then it does take you to bills and income.Not as useful for me. AFAIK, there is no way in the bills and income tab to go to the account register. Thaty's why I use the overview tab

    I am disappointed with the circular pie chart in the "Dashboard". The pie chart in "Overview" has better display options. In "Overview" I can click on a category in the pie chart and I get a new pie chart with all my subcategories displayed and a line-by line list of all items in that category. "Dashboard" only gives a line-by-line list of items with all the subcategories mixed up. It's a step backwards.
