Budget vs Actual Report
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I know of only 2 personal finance programs that feature a Budget vs Actual Report feature: Quicken Classic for Windows and YNAB. This is one of the most useful financial tools available to financial planners and it's not available in Quicken for Mac. Users have been asking for this feature for years but their requests have been ignored.
This is my guess about why this is so:
1. The so-called 'development team' consists of 1 or 2 coders that lack financial planning skills and/or coding knowledge. Perhaps they should consult with their Windows colleagues, but I don't think that will happen because the Windows coders might as well be working for another company. Mac coding is a completely different language than Windows coding.
2. The development team simultaneously work on other priorities with the purpose of selling new subscriptions for their company. Budget Report requests are coming from users who have already paid for their subscriptions, so there's no financial gain from spending valuable time to try to satisty their needs.
To me there's only one solution to the report problem: Money talks, so cut your loses and move on. Don't renew your subscription when it expires. Either switch to a Web-based financial tool such as YNAB or buy a Windows computer and switch to Quicken Classic for Windows.
