I agree. Being able to view check images from the Quicken register would save me lots of time manually reconciling the Payee from my Bank's online website.
Black and white (gray) 8-bit images at maybe 100 dpi tops the size of a check, fronts and backs, are tiny in Kb. The bank already scans them now. They have the images. They provide the images with bank statements. Make them downloadable. Maybe even Deposit Slips too on/for your account - also scanned nowadays. And of course... an option to enable, or not. But an option nonetheless.
You know something? I'm not here to argue. If this feature is not useful to you, please contribute something constructive on another "idea" thread. This is how life becomes better. A suggestion today MIGHT make this easier for all in the future. My wife uses her checkbook and writes checks that I don't catch for a month or two later. I'd like to see the check when it is posted. She's away and I don't have the recording of the check. OK? I could come up with other scenarios. It's called an idea for some enhanced features. We may not see it today, but maybe in the future. If I can snap a picture and make a remote deposit today, what's the diff.? None. It's called convenience. Thank you.
ones own scans cannot capture this.
And to all who like this idea ... why can't you just scan and attach the check before you send it?Do you expect that your bank would provide BOTH the front and the back of the check ... thus doubling the size of the download?
if your main complaint is storage you need to step out of the 80s
Same procedure and argument can be made for account statements...yet Quicken handles those, however questionable.
This is a bad idea. One, it would introduce an unnecessary complication into Quicken which it does not need, Two, the bloat this would add to Quicken and the Quicken file are unacceptable, Three there would have to coordination between EACH AND EVERY bank and Quicken as to what standard to us... No Thanks.Suggestion: WHY not just sign on to your banks web site and look up and copy if needed the copy of the check that you might need?
