I would like to be able to include the "Notes" column in my banking transactions report that I generate.  Is this possible to do?

    Are you talking about the "Notes" column / field or the "Memo" field?
    The Memo field is part of the fields available to the Report Generator, the Notes field is not.

    I am talking about the "Notes" column/field.  I am wondering if it is possible for the software to be modified to provide the option of having the "Notes" column included in the Report Generator.  I print out reports, and I use both the memo field and the notes field to record specific information, but I cannot print out all the information if I can't print the notes field.

    Then, submit that as an IDEA, instead of as a problem.

    I often flag transactions so they show up on alert screen.  When I click on the Alert icon on the actions bar, I see the followup date, and the account, but nothing which reflects the Notes I put into the alert to describe the history and actions I need to take.  Could you please add this Notes info to the Alerts "results" list, so I can see at a glance, up front, what is in each Note for each Alert which is reported?  Seems like this would make that function much more useful.   The Notes field contents on the Alerts screen don't necessarily need to contain the FULL contents, just whatever can be displayed on one line (perhaps with the ability to scroll "to the right"). Thanks!

    Also, please enable user ...
    - to re-size the columns with drag-n-drop, and
    - to sort (ascending/descending) individual columns by clicking on the column headers.

    Today, can't see full date unless i hover over the field.  Lots of space for Description field (most of it blank), but very little for Date, and NO content in "TYPE" column (what is that column/field intended to describe?)

    Thanks!

    Will there be any response/post on this website to indicate status (investigating/in plan/rejected) of this suggestion?

    No, as this is a user to user forum.  While a posting can be listed as "Idea", that does not mean Quicken Inc. will act on it.

    GeoffG, thanks for clarifying. 
    Does anyone know of a website which can be used to post user suggestions, AND  which will be reviewed by (and hopefully acted on?) by Quicken staff?

    I use "Transaction Notes and Flags" on a regular basis and would like to be able to print a report which includes the Transaction Notes (not the Memo field information).  I suspect the answer is that it can't be done, but I'm just checking to be sure.

    Hello Robert,

    That's a great question and thank you for sharing it with the Community, although I apologize that you have not yet received a response.

    Please visit https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7134394/how-do-i-print-the-notes-column-or-the-tag-column-in-a-register-the-notes-column-is-not-on-the-prin and let us know if this information helps.

    Thank you,

    Sarah
  • Thanks, Sarah.  The link you provided confirmed what I thought, which is that Transaction Notes cannot be printed/exported.  Maybe in a future version, I hope.

    Is there a reporting and exporting option that allows for Notes to be exported. And I mean the Notes field, not the Memo field.

    Interesting question....   I had never thought about it, but there really is not a way to report those "extra" columns that you can checkbox for display in a Register.
    There does not appear to be a corresponding selection ability within the various reports to checkbox and report those "extra" columns....

    I don't recall any provision to print, report, or export the Notes field associated with individual transactions.  
  • Scott15Scott15 Member ✭✭
    Thank you, and thanks for updating the topic title. I wasn't sure how to phrase it. Is there a way to request adding a feature such as this? I found what I believe is a similar question to this, but it was for the Mac version. It seems it was requested and possibly just forgotten about. The link in the that particular question was no longer valid, which is what lead me to ask my own. For me, it would be nice if *all* fields are exportable, but for my own specific purposes, the Notes are of specific interest to me at the moment.

    Thank you

    It would be significantly helpful to have a Notes or even a Notes 1 and 2 field to be able to include on reports and printing.

    Expense report number cross referencing / recaps,
    Original Memo field Information

    1) My husband has as a significant number of expense reports in his job. I put the expense report number in the Notes field to cross reference when I need to review all expenses captured and submitted.

    2) I use the notes field also to code that I do or do not have a receipt and whether it is an ER (Electronic Receipt) or HR (Hard Receipt) or NR (No Receipt). Then I don't have to go digging for backup that may or may not be there and/or I narrow the search to digital or paper.

    3) I like to keep original downloaded Memos as there is helpful reference information such as airline ticket numbers when I need to recapture air miles.

    Additional to my above post voting for a Notes field to include in reporting and printing.

    Currently, If you type or paste data into the Notes filed as a first keystroke, and then do so in the Memo field, the Notes field data auto erases when you save.

    Definitely would like Notes to be an option in reports.

    Would like notes to also be searchable.

    I don't see a way to vote at the top right of (presumably) this page.
