Would like additional date range options when creating a report. (4 legacy votes)

When specifying a date range for a report, I would like the option to specify a custom, dynamic date range of Start of Year - End of Last Month or, more generally, Start of Year - End of # Months ago. This was a favorite feature of mine from Quicken 2007 and I have sorely missed it in the Quicken 2017 and Quicken 2018.

One other way to supply the functionality I want would be to extend the AppleScript Dictionary to allow me to specify the date range of a report. My script could then do the appropriate calculation and set the end date.

    Thanks for the suggestion.



    You might want to review this compilation of QMac report related suggestions to see if there are other report improvements you would like to see implemented:

    This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Would like additional date range options when creating a report.


    With the release of Quicken 2019, I wanted to bring up this feature request of mine again...

    I would like to be able to save a report with the date option "year to end of last month". I used to be able to do this with Quicken 2007. I would like the option back. The current "Year to Date" option is useless for me.

    Manually adjusting the date constantly is annoying.

    This IDEA thread also relates to the following which extends this feature further:

    You may want to add your VOTE to this too.

    First, click on the underlined link above to go there, then click the little grey triangle under the VOTE count

    As I point out, this really goes hand-in-hand with Add ability to save and re-use customized date ranges

    Both of these need addressing.
