Paycheck and Bill Reminders Disappear

Having problems with the paycheck and bill reminders disappearing on the due date if I don't get into the software the day before to enter it. This ends up being a real pain to try in get a "paycheck" entered after you missed the reminder.
Help!

    Thank you. Logging out/in seems to have at least got me one paycheck working. Let's see for the next one.

    The suggested fix did not work. Still an issue. Always missing my paycheck reminder and now my auto loan payment reminder.
    Any suggestions appreciated. Almost ready to punt Quicken and build myself an Excel database.

    If you haven't done so already, please do the following actions:
    • Even if you are on the latest software level already, download and install the latest Manual Patch file from https://www.quicken.com/support/update-and-mondo-patch-20182019-release-quicken-windows-subscription-product to ensure your Quicken software is up to date and correctly installed.
    • Reboot Windows.
    • Validate and Supervalidate your Quicken data file.
    • If nothing helps, try to restore your Quicken data file from an Automatic or Manual backup taken just prior to the problems first occurring. https://www.quicken.com/support/how-backup-or-restore-your-quicken-data

    I tried all of these with the exception of restoring a "back-up" and having to reenter months of transactions due to an issue which is clearly software related.
    Frustrated.
