Quicken doesn't have a feature for printing deposit slips.
Was this helpful?

Big mistake. I have to enter deposits in the register and then hand write deposit slips? Too much room for error and make a user do all that work when the software should just print a deposit slip for all entries into the register. Is intuit not adding this feature just because they don't want to duplicate the feature that exists in quickbooks? Entering deposits and depositing those items to your bank account requires a deposit slip or ticket. The bank does not care whether they are going into a business account or personal account. The failure to put this feature in is a major over site. I will return this software and hope intuit updates there software with this feature in the future. I purchased this software and quickbooks to save me time and increase accuracy.

Curious why you even need deposit slips. I haven't needed them since ATMs were invented.

What does an ATM have to do with it? If I have to deposit five checks I can't just hand them over to the teller. I need to enter them on a slip and total them.

Pretending that not being able to print deposit slips means that Quicken will not save you time, strongly suggests that you know nothing about Quicken.
Either you never needed the product in the first place - with, or without, deposit slips; or you're just shoveling some fertilizer to try to make the issue sound bigger than it is.
Quicken has been around for decades, and never printed deposit slips; so don't hold your breath waiting for your threat (whether real, or not) to have any effect.
Your "evaluation" also demonstrates that you have no idea what a "major oversight" is ... you've confused "major oversigtht" with not giving you whatever you want. Maybe someplace in the world you're that important ... but not in the world of Quicken customers.
[I believe there are ways of getting deposit slips from Quicken data (though not printed by Quicken), but I'm not inclined to dig them up and post them.]

Swift, ATMs accept checks for deposit without deposit slips. No human teller needed.

I can give the teller my checks without a deposit slip.
FYI - also you might need to set up an intermediate holding account. Set up an account and call it something like Checks Received or Undeposited Payments. Then enter the payments into it. Then when you make the deposit to your bank account you transfer the total deposit amount to the new account. That way when you download your bank transactions the deposit will match.

Thank you rlw and volvogirl. I have deposits for a few other companies using Quickbooks and it would be too difficult to process all the checks I have at an ATM. Thank you for your input and I may try it just for my personal check deposits. And thank you for not being arrogant. LOL! All the best.

Swift - You may have also provided your own solution.
If you're using QuickBooks, as well as Quicken, you can print deposit slips from QuickBooks. You could create a dummy account (or even dummy QBW file, if you need to keep things really separate) where you input your checks, print your deposit slip, then let Quicken download that deposit later (so you don't have to do double-data-entry).
Just a thought.

I'm with Swift to some extent. While it would be nice to have QE print deposit tickets I DON'T agree that it is a major oversight, just a minor inconvenience akin to not being able to set the the default printer to the one I want. Each time I print in QE, I have to manually select the correct printer. Also, my bank will NOT accept deposits without deposit slips either at the teller or the ATM. In fact I don't know how any would. Obviously QB will brint the slips as both Deluxe and Harland-Clarke sell them. I even have some that have the INTUIT copyright on them from 2003 and they don't work with QE or it's predecessor. Once again, an inconvenience rather than a MAJOR OVERSIGHT but it would be nice to have that feature.

I was a programmer and beta tester in my prior life; retail industry, back office, POS etc. I say a major oversight because making deposits in a business is a daily, basic task. There is no reason to leave this out. There is no difficult algorithm that is preventing Intuit from doing this. They do it already in QBs. The whole Idea behind software and the creation of Quicken was to automate and increase accuracy.

This was already mentioned, but I use Citibank which accepts checks for deposit or payment thru an ATM without using any forms whatsoever. In fact the racks that used to contain all those printed forms are completely empty now.
The ATM prints a receipt with an image of all the checks that you inserted. You don't even need to key in any check amounts, the ATM can read them!
