Why should one upgrade to Quicken 2014

From Splasher:This forum is for user looking for help with the current Quicken products.

Suggestions, enhancement requests and complaints are taken at: Get Sat-Win

It is not a matter of free speech, you are complaining in the wrong place and not helping at all with users with a real problem in the use of Quicken.  There are thousands of programs out there that do not make use of the Windows 8 interface, why not go complain about them on their websites.  Frankly, I'm glad that Quicken has not forced that interface on us yet, it will probably be the one thing in life that will prompt me to switch to a Mac.


Since you keep closing my post before I can respond to you, I can only think that you don't want a dialog.  This will be my last attempt.  You can have the final word.  Your comments above are wrong.  No one would be forced to use Windows 8 or Windows Phone if there were apps for them.  You can still use earlier versions of Windows or MAC, of course.


I have made the suggestions for these apps.  I have also asked for a web portal so that anyone with a tablet or smartphone could access their Quicken files in the Cloud.  Right now, I have a feature in Quicken 2013 (and now in 2014) that I cannot access.  This is discrimination and Quicken has a monopoly (now that MS Money is not a product) and so has an obligation to support their customers.  And not play favorites.


Now you can disagree and you can close my posts, but facts are stubborn things.  This is my last attempt to dialog with you. I won't bother again, which should make you very happy.


I still would like to hear from people who have Quicken 2014 to see if there is any thing in it to coax me into updating.

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.
