How do I add Bill reminders to my register where they stay open when I use my register

Options

I found a way to Bill reminders to my register in my Quicken Deluxe version for Windows, I just got my son to sign up for Quicken Premier (which he only needed Deluxe) but anyway I can't add his bill reminders to pop open with the register view like mine in the Deluxe version. What am I doing wrong please help??

    trying to see what you are talking about -
    Does it start with this screen ?
    If not then where and how ?

     … it is the bill reminder dialogue box that can be minimized
    or showing bill reminders underneath the register
    by clicking the up arrow when it is down, so to speak…

    or this from the bottom of the Register - as mentioned above - ?

    If you have the Downloaded Transactions preference for Automatically Add Downloaded Transactions to Banking Registers, you will not see the Downloaded Transactions tab or the Bill Reminders tab at the bottom of the account register. Turn that preference off.

    Are you talking about where Reminders will show in the register, even when they have not yet been entered into the register?

    If so, above and on the right of the register (just to the left of the Gear icon) is a small icon that looks like a Clock. Click on that Clock icon and then select the number of days into the future that you want Reminders shown for. (If you do not see that Clock icon click on the Gear icon > Customize Action Bar > Reminders to Show in Register.) Then the Reminders will show up in the register something like this.:

    Does this answer your question? If not, would you provide a little more detail on what it is that you are wanting to see?

    Well this is a great answer to my failed attempt at describing what I was looking for, so for the answer, Thank you; however I need to clarify more I guess, it is the bill reminder dialogue box that can be minimized or showing bill reminders underneath the register by clicking the up arrow when it is down, so to speak. I use that in my file to plug in my bills manually to the register, I don't use or care to download or sync anything to a server, old school maybe but I have been using Quicken for many years doing things manually. I still don't know everything about it but I can always learn.

    I need to know how to turn the bill reminder dialogue box that sits below the register in my son's quicken file. Mine is available and works fine but I cannot fort the life of me figure out how to toggle it since I obviously at one time turned on this view in my file before and have stuck with it. I hope this gives you guys some better clarity, Thank you ahead of time for any assistance you can provide me.

    just for sharing - I tend to have setup all my Manual Reminders and then can view them in the Calendar -
    I can then click on whichever one I want to Enter, Edit, or Ignore/Skip -

    I use this for our monthly bills, our yearly bills, and all our donations and charity events -
    And it reflects all the accounts I use for paying… Checking, Credit Cards, Paypal, etc -

    Hey there, Thank you for responding, yes what your showing the bill reminders is correct, and it is definitely from the bottom of the register. I just need to know how that gets "turned on or off" is my question. Like I mentioned before, I am using Quicken Deluxe on a Windows 10 machine, my son has a new Windows 11 machine running Quicken Premier but under his register I don't see the bill reminders that I can maximize under the register or minimize.

    There has to been a way I activated this to be under my register a long long time ago, but I can't seem to find out how to activate in his copy of Quicken Premier, as a matter of fact, this is my Only Preferred way to utilize Quicken to pay my bills! I realize in software there is always 10 different ways to achieve the same destination I just haven't found out how to in Quicken Premier, I cannot see how it is all that different from the Deluxe version I have but apparently it is. So Thank you for the awesome reply, we are almost there, please keep responding back I really Appreciate you! 😉

    Since you want to have Reminders populate the Bill & Income Reminders tab below the Account Register, check your Reminders Optional Settings.:

    also - in the Account Register - if you click upper right Gear/Settings - scroll down to - Reminders To Show In Register -
