Validate file shows 1 or 2 scheduled transactions corrected every day I do a Validate File

I have had many issues in the past with corrupt transactions that when I tried to fix them manually, I found that reconciled transactions had been updated accidentally. Therefore, for well over a year, I have followed the habit of One-Step Update, categorize, etc., then File-Operations - Validate and Repair before I run a backup. I used to always run "Super Validate" but I don't know that it is any different now. Anyway, I constantly get 1, 2, or 3 scheduled transactions corrected (such as copied from the log below). Scheduled bills and transactions are also something that has been problematic in the past so I would really like to see WHAT is being corrected. If there is an error, include more logging on what was found and fixed. I can read xml, json, etc. so that isn't a problem.

    @Quicken_Natalie I believe this is more of an "idea/suggestion" than a request for help.

    "Scheduled bills and transactions are also something that has been problematic in the past so I would really like to see WHAT is being corrected. If there is an error, include more logging on what was found and fixed. I can read xml, json, etc. so that isn't a problem."

    Validate log shows:
    [Sun Feb 23 13:49:02 2020]
    1 scheduled transactions corrected
    Validation has completed.
    Let's just simply say that I concur with this idea / suggestion.
    The programmers really need to review the Validate process and
    1. figure out why said scheduled transaction was not corrected, if the same error message recurs when one runs Validate again.
    2. display a line of text with information about the scheduled transaction (payee name, next due date, memo, amount)

    To hopefully get rid of the damaged reminder please perform all the steps in Step (2) of this document:

    I repeat my earlier comment. The programmers really should give us more details about the reminder in question and they should review their code, to figure out why the message keeps popping up every time Validate is run. Did someone forget to update the database with the correction?

    This idea does need to be implemented.

    Any time an error is reported, there needs to be enough information supplied to know what exactly was found or repaired.

    It's actually puzzling to find the same message every time super validation is ran, when no scheduled transactions seem to be altered at all.

    2 scheduled transactions corrected
    No out-of-range security references found.
    This needs to be investigated.
