Yes back when I had a Windows 95 computer. Ever since Quicken added mobile app I have used it to help keep track of my budget. Over the last 6 months I have not had this feature and my wife depends on this for purchases.<br /><br />What is the status? Is this feature coming back? Should I look into other options? In your 2018 Release (back in November) you touted that this feature was on the mobile device. I had the 2016 version and <u><b>I upgraded because</b></u> it had been disabled, thinking that it would be on the newer version of quicken. How wrong I was.<br /><br />We are now longer than 4 months without ANY update on the app. And more than 8 months on having access to budgets. question pending 25 16 5 comment 7740969 Quicken Closes after Back Up (Revised) 2018-05-26T05:21:27Z 2018-05-25T21:53:02Z Ed Sennett ed_sennett <p>Quicken closes after backup.

A couple of times it's said that file is in use by another program. I end up doing a restart which finally lets me open Quicken. I can't imagine what program would be using my Quicken data file after I've logged off the previous time. I back up my Quicken files to an external hard drive and manually move them to an encrypted file on Dropbox, so I can't see that as being the problem. About the same time as this problem started, I also began having a problem with my account information from Sallie Mae Bank no longer updated with One Step Update, but I have no idea if the two are related. problem active 15 8 1 comment 7741056 editing columns 2018-05-26T04:12:09Z 2018-05-26T04:12:09Z Mike Slotnick mike_slotnick I'd upgraded to Quicken for Mac 2016 and all is well until I try to add a new Cash account and can't get the same column choices ... I want it to be the same as the other accounts but can't find or create a "Payment" or "Deposit" column - only an amount column which I guess you can enter +/- numbers but I'd prefer to have it as it was/is with other accounts.

I don't want to 'resolve' them because I don't own them. I tried deleting one of those placeholders, but then the mutual fund appeared in my holdings list with a negative balance, so I reverted to the backup file. How do I get rid of these? question 0 1 1 create 7700982 Quicken 2018 R6.12 - Online Billers Disappeared 2018-05-26T03:23:06Z 2018-03-09T15:22:44Z Brian Hodder brian_hodder When I did my updates this morning I looked and found all of my online bills were no longer linked.

Ever since the R16 update, I have not been able to update any of my accounts. I found a posting that said I deactivate the accounts, then re add them and match them. I deactivated the accounts but could not add any others. Then I found one that said I should reinstall Quicken on top of the current version. I did and then when I would click the "connect" button to re add the accounts, it would do nothing. So I reinstalled the Mondo patch and the button worked but then I got the error again when trying to re add the accounts.&nbsp;<br /><br />Then I found another post where you guys are actually working through the issue. It stated I should try and reset my token. I went into preferences and it cant retrieve my account. So I checked the logs and it indeed is the SAML token, but I have no idea how to reset it.<br /><br /><br /><img src="" title="Image:" /><img src="" /> problem 1 2 2 comment 7427308 Quicken 2017 - Debt Reduction Planner bug 2018-05-26T03:16:21Z 2017-01-22T15:34:13Z Brennan Kohrherr brennan_kohrherr When using the debt reduction planner, the planner will not accept the actual minimum loan payment, and in all cases requires a number that is higher. &nbsp;Using some ballpark math, it would appear that it is using the initial loan balance over the remaining loan months, instead of the current loan balance, in order to calculate the minimum monthly payment. &nbsp;For instance, my ~$350/month car loan is forced to be ~1150/month minimum in the planner, and it is over 2/3 paid off. problem a_quicken_for_windows_other a_quicken_for_windows_other, using_planning_tools active 23 15 4 comment 7741012 Unable to do one step update or online banking since latest update to Quicken 2016 2018-05-26T03:10:42Z 2018-05-26T01:17:47Z David Aizuss david_aizuss When I try to update any of my accounts I get the following errors:&nbsp;<br />Schwab&nbsp; OL 301A<br />Citicards&nbsp; OL 295-A<br />Citibank &nbsp;&nbsp; CC-800<br /><br /><br />I have tried some of the online suggestions including clearing my internet history and reregistering through the Windows Control panel.&nbsp; Nothing is working.&nbsp; Infuriating.&nbsp; Help!! problem 1 3 2 comment 7741044 Unable to set up mobile accounts with Quicken 2016 on Windows 10 2018-05-26T03:05:24Z 2018-05-26T03:05:24Z Elliot Brown elliot_brown_aqd0ar1ye1gis Hello,<br /><br />I recently decided to try out the Quicken mobile app. After downloading the app, it told me to add accounts from my desktop. In my Quicken, the only option I see relating to mobile is under<br /><br />Edit &gt; Preferences &gt; Quicken ID, Mobile &amp; Alerts<br /><br />When I go here, there is a section titled "Mobile &amp; Alerts" with a button saying "Get Started". But clicking the button simply closes the Preferences box and nothing else.<br /><br />How can I add accounts from my desktop?<br /><br /><img src="" title="Image:" /><br /><br />Thanks! problem 0 1 1 create
