In addition to the issues recently reported related to "Auto Enter Transaction" functionality disappearing after last weeks upgrade, I just noticed that saved paycheck reminders have also changed. Previously I've always used the Paycheck Wizzard saved in Income/Bill Reminders to automatically record paychecks, but after the recent upgrade now the reminders have been converted to just split transactions. I guess I am lucky that Quicken kept all the detailed lines.

This is a know issue that started after the update last week. Quicken Kristina keeps telling people to contact Quicken support even though she announced in a posting on the 8th that this is a know issue.
There are several posts in the community related to the issue. Quicken will typically merge the posts into a single post to help users, but that hasn't occured yet.
Thank you for reaching out to the Community and telling us about this issue. I'm sorry to hear you're running into this problem. There is a Community Alert for Auto Enter vanishing from bill reminders, but it shouldn't be affecting the reminder's function. If the issue you are encountering is preventing the reminder from automatically entering into the register, then I would recommend contacting Quicken Support directly for further assistance as they can walk you through troubleshooting steps in real-time and escalate the situation as needed. The Quicken Support phone number can be found through this link here. Phone support is available from 5:00 am PT to 5:00 pm PT, Monday through Friday.
Yesterday I, once again, changed all of the due within 30 day payments (remember only the payments due within 30 days had changed themselves from "auto enter" to "remind me") back to "auto enter" and then closed & re-opened Quicken numerous times and they all remained as "auto enter".
I opened Quicken this morning and they had all changed back to "remind me" but again it was only the due in 30 days payments while everything due beyond 30 days remained "auto enter".
This is crazy…since everything was just fine prior to that supposed 5/08/2023 update.
Same issue for me. It started with R49.xx release. It happens when I would cloud sync which I have now had to stop using.
Note that even with "sync to Quicken cloud" unchecked, in One Step Update, the payments due within 30 days still change themselves from "auto enter" to "remind me".
Quicken Premier version R49.29 build 126.96.36.199 Windows 11 Home - Bill and Income reminder status changing from "Auto" to "Upcoming" after One-Step Update. I changed them back to auto, ran One-step update again and again they switch to "Upcoming". In this status, of course, they do not automatically enter on the date due. Instead, they queue up in the "Bill and Income Reminders (x due)" tab for the appropriate account. Not all reminders are being changed. Some stay in the "Auto" status. I can't correlate anything specific about one that change status versus those that do not.
I find that the only ones that revert from "auto enter" back to reminders are the payments & income that are within 30 days…the rest remain unchanged.
Same issue here. "Auto enter" changes to "remind me." Additionally, several instances of a recurring reminder simply disappeared with the "start date" changed to date over a month in the future.
If you click on "View Post" (above), there's a line in the first paragraph that reads "This does not affect the functionality of auto entry of the transaction". Has anyone NOT entered a reminder before the due date and seen that this is true?
I'm going to change the next ("auto enter" that was changed to "reminder") payment's date to tomorrow's date (17th) and am intentionally not going to enter it myself but instead wait until the day after to see if what they say is true.
I'll post my results on the 18th.
Paul, I changed a status "Upcoming" bill reminder dated 1/11/2024 to "Auto", ran One-Step Update and it changed back to "Upcoming". So, your premise of the problem effecting only bills and income reminders within 30 days is not applicable to my situation.
A majority of my Bill and Income Reminders have the Optional Settings selected for "Automatically enter the transaction in the register". After I run an update and shut down Quicken, then open Quicken back up, this setting is changed to 'remind me 7 days in advance" for all of my Bill Reminders. I ahve Chatted and Called Support, but they don't see any problem. I have run Validate and Super Validate and there are no errors. I have Mobile Sync turned Off. This started right after the last automatic software update to Version R49.29 Build 188.8.131.52. Any suggestions how to fix? This is a critical issue when you want your bills to be paid on time.

"Update" is ambiguous.
Does this happen after you update to a new version of Quicken, or after a One Step Update?
This started after the last software update. When I synchronize and then shut down, then restart, this is when I would find them changed. This has been going on all week, but today they didn’t change for the first time.
In the above link you state that…
"Customers have reported that when adding a manual bill reminder with auto entry on that is then synced to mobile/web, the "Auto-Enter" is no longer displayed on the reminder. This does not affect the functionality of auto entry of the transaction"
This may be true if only the "Auto Enter" is no longer displayed and the transaction remains flagged as "Auto Enter" but in the case that this thread describes, when "Auto Enter" transactions have been changed (by Quicken) to "Remind Me" then you have to manually enter the transaction or it shows as past due.
I'm not sure if these issues (which all began after the 05/15/2023 update) are related or not but someone might want to look into that.
This happened to me again!!! Originally I had scheduled transaction to "Automatically enter", about 1 week ago Quicken took it upon itself, and changed all of them to "Remind me!" I then changed all of them back to "Automatically enter!!!"
Well, Quicken did it again and all of my Scheduled Transactions have been changed to "Remind Me." This is maddening!
I have had other problems with Quicken freezing when I'm Updating Accounts. No solution yet!
I've been using Quicken for over 25 years. I have been very disappointed with the subscription service! Especially the past 6 months or so. Has the programing been outsourced to a different group of people?
I have recently noticed that all my Bill Reminders and Income Reminders in the optional settings of a Bill or Income, to which I have selected some of them to be set to automatically entry and just remind. Recently after I complete an update of all my accounts in Quicken all the reminders has changed back to reminders only. I have attempted reset each income and bill reminders to automatically enter and again they reset back to reminders after an update. Why? I like the option to allow Quicken to either options or both for my bills and income reminders.
Having the same issue with the update and experiencing exactly what Michael K described. Hoping this will be fixed soon.

According to the alert, this should not be impacting the function, just causing the words "auto enter" to disappear.

Since I didn't hear back from you Jim, I reworded my response. This started after the last software update to a new version of Quicken. When I synchronize with the One Step Update and then shut down, then restart, this is when I would find them changed. This has been going on all week, but today they didn’t change for the first time.
