    Hi @ Developers and Programmers ,

    Many Quicken Users are running away from Windows to Mac Computers, but not running away from Quicken, itself. Simply program Quicken for MAC Programs to behave in the same fashion that Quicken for Windows behaves, with the same options that Windows has.

    Like Bill Pay through the Online Center.
    Two-line Checking Account Display.
    Mac Computers should not be a 2nd Class Computer, therefore, Quicken For Mac, should have all the options that Quicken for Windows has.

    But make sure that there are options to turn on or turn off. Users don't like the same Behavior for all.

    QMac already has this capability - from the get-go.

    Display of scheduled transactions is account specific and is set in the Settings > Scheduled Transactions: dialog for each account.

    The existing feature is a display only....it does not apply the payment automatically. There are many cases where the payment is pre-authorized and a user does not need to accept it as paid.
    (Of course, there are cases to only want/need to display the scheduled transaction and not apply it automatically, as is possible now.)

    This feature to automatically apply the scheduled transaction is part of every other version of Quicken, including QM2007. Just want it in current Quicken for Mac too.

    Just to add to this conversation some context, personally, I have over 150 scheduled transactions. Many of these are pre-authorized or repeating amounts. Although it is only a few clicks to mark as paid for EACH transaction, do this enough times and it starts to add to the workload. 

    Quicken already has this logic in other versions. Just looking for the same.

    I also recommend you add your vote to a related IDEA, to have an option to skip and edit a bill reminders/scheduled transactions, here: https://getsatisfaction.com/quickencommunity/topics/we-need-a-way-to-skip-and-edit-a-single-transact...

    Be sure to go there, then click VOTE at the top to increase the count and therefore its visibility to the developers.

    I would definitely like to have an auto enter option in scheduled transactions. I would be major time saver for me since I have several transactions each month what could be just automatically entered, and done with it.  
    Also, a control option on the "auto fill"  transactions.  I loved the feature in the old Quicken (2003), where I could control the auto fill list. If I turned it on, it automatically added the transaction to this list, and when I turned it off, it will no longer add to the list or change it. This feature was helpful, because when I make a purchase at a specific store,  multiple categories like, groceries, cosmetics, clothing), the next time I enter the purchase for the same store, with the auto fill, all these categories would not show up again . Now in iBank, the auto fill will bring up the last used category(s) I used. It is very annoying, because I have to clear all that out and enter the new/current category for that purchase. I don't know how to explain it better. 
    Thank you.Judit Juhasz

    P.S. I downloaded the new Quicken 2007 for Mac last night, not even sure how the "auto fill" works. It may not even have auto fill. ????

    Did you mean 2007 or 2017?
    This is a little off topic but the auto fill is always on in QM2017. All payees are saved, with the latest categorization, memos, amounts, used. There is no way to turn it off. Instead, you can hide the ones you no longer want to see show up in lists. What is missing is the ability to LOCK a payee and categorization. You can now VOTE for that feature, there: https://getsatisfaction.com/quickencommunity/topics/add-ability-to-lock-a-payee-and-categorization-i...

    Be sure to click on the link above to go there, then click VOTE at the top of THAT page to increase the count and therefore its visibility to the developers.

    If you do not click VOTE at the top of the page of each feature, your vote will NOT be counted! So click on VOTE at the top of this page for this feature, then click on the link for the page for the LOCK feature and add your vote there.

    Agreed. Mac users should have the joy of runaway reminders just like the Win folks do.

    It's not the Work, it's remembering to do it.  The beauty of Automation is once it is set up, you don't have to think about it again.

    Hi @ Developers and Programmers ,

    Many Quicken Users are running away from Windows to Mac Computers, but not running away from Quicken, itself. Simply program Quicken for MAC Programs to behave in the same fashion that Quicken for Windows behaves, with the same options that Windows has.

    Like Bill Pay through the Online Center.
    Two-line Checking Account Display.
    Mac Computers should not be a 2nd Class Computer, therefore, Quicken For Mac, should have all the options that Quicken for Windows has.

    But make sure that there are options to turn on or turn off. Users don't like the same Behavior for all.

    I'm a long time Quicken Win user (since 1997) and have just started using QM17. What a disappointment. Having to manually mark scheduled transactions as paid is a pain. Not everyone is able to download from the bank - I live in UK so it has to be manual. My 2001 Q Win has more functionality than Q Mac which is embarrassing.

    Nor does everyone want to download from FIs/Banks either, even within the US.

    It's a little hidden but we added this feature in 2018 with the new Bills & Income feature.
    1) Go to Bills & Income and stay on the Bills view.
    2) Click the 3 dots on the scheduled transaction that you want to change.
    3) Select Edit Schedule.
    4) In this dialog, there is now a checkbox for Automatically "mark as paid".

    Please be careful with any Bill Pay scheduled transactions because we will have to move the date and pay your bill if it happens to fall on a weekend.

    I believe the status of this should be IMPLEMENTED since this was implemented in v5.1-Oct, 2, 2017.
