Repeating payments with New Quicken Bill Manager

Formerly with Quicken Bill Pay, I could schedule repeating payments for the next year, with split categories repeated.

Not so easy with the New Quicken Bill Manager.

1. There is no way to schedule a repeating payment in the BILLS & INCOME tab.
2. Repeating a payment requires clicking the CheckFree payee again and entering a new date, one-by-one, and re-editing the split categories.
3. There seems to be a 3-month time limit on scheduled payments. So on January 1st, I cannot schedule anything beyond April 2nd.
4. Even using the Scheduler and within BILLS&INCOME using the "Due in 12 months" filter, I cannot edit these payment dates beyond April 2nd, and they still require one-by-one entries.

    Hello @eyedoc,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community with your request, though I apologize for any inconvenience caused by the current absence of this feature.

    Even though Recurring Payments are currently not available with Quicken Bill Manager, it is in the works. We know this is a big concern to users, and our Development and Product teams are working on implementing this feature.

    Therefore, I'd like to refer you to this active Idea post regarding this topic which is currently marked as Planned. Feel free to bookmark the Idea post as well by clicking the yellow star in the top-right corner of the post to be notified of updates as they become available.

    I hope this helps!

    Please advise when it is anticipated recurring payments will be again included as a feature of the Quicken software.

    Also, I noticed Quicken uses ACH transfers to get their fees from my account. So, might there be plans to include recurring ACH transfers so I can make a monthly distribution direct to my eight partners bank accounts in lieu of mailing them checks each month? Aside from a great convenience, this is especially important since Quicken mailed checks are now regularly taking up to three weeks to be delivered by the USPS.
