Question about adding catagories and classes


I used to have an old version of quicken. I think like quicken 2000. Anyways back then you could add catagories and classes.

For example I would track my rental properties expenses. So when I entered a transaction in my checking account, I would code to the catagory(expense) and then class (particular property it was). Then I could run reports showing my spending by category and property (class).

can you still do things like that in the new quicken subscription version. I don’t need any of the importing my bank or investment transactions etc. I just want to be able to manually enter transactions in a register and code to the catagories I want and sub code to the class I want.

Is that still possible in quicken.

    I know there is a quicken for rental properties but not interested in all the extra features that offers. I use to do all of this above with the basic version

    I use the 'tag' field for that. It is good enough for me. Have you tried that?

    Note that "class" was renamed to "tag" in more recent versions of Quicken, they are the same thing.

    EDIT: Warning. The Starter edition what you might call the "basic edition" doesn't fully support tags. You can use them in the register, but not in a report. You need at least the Deluxe edition for fully use tags.
