One Step Update isn't working for me

Quicken 2013
Update R10

I have never used the One Step update before.  I have always manually gone out to my bank's website and downloaded the transactions.  I decided that I wanted to start using the one step update with the scheduled transaction download.  I set it to download my transactions at 4 AM.

When I pick up my computer in the morning there is a box asking for the Password Vault password. I have the vault set up with the banks password information, but it doesn't seem to be working.  What am I doing wrong?

The password vault is set up.  I leave my computer turned on at night.  I am not signed on to Quicken (I don't  like leaving Quicken open).  I set it so the password is required at Windows sign on.

What am I missing or doing wrong?

Also, I have contacted Quicken support about my downloaded transactions.  I have it set to NOT automatically record the downloaded transactions in the register, but it is still automatically recording them.  I want to manually review each one and accept or reject it.  This started after the R10 update.

THANKS in advance for the help!!!


Here's what it sounds like is happening with your scheduled update.

Quicken normally won't remember the Vault password for more than a few hours. So I'm guessing you can't give Quicken the Vault password once and expect scheduled updates to occur forever thereafter, without entering the Vault password again. 

As to the automatic adding of transactions to registers:

I've seen no change to that behavior since Q2013 was released, and I now have R10.

There are two places you can control auto-add downloaded transactions. 

1.) Globally (for all accounts): Edit > Preferences > Downloaded transactions.

2.) For each account individually: with the account "register" open; click the gear wheel icon, select "Edit Account Details", choose the "Online Services" tab, and note (and click, if necessary) the link alongside "xxxx is setup for transaction download ".

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
