Get help for QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks CD/Download for Windows, and for QuickBooks for Mac from the official QuickBooks® support website. Dec 4, 2018 - (if you own Quicken for Mac, you know this headache first hand). In 2016, Intuit sold Quicken to private equity firm H.I.G. Personal Capital is our Editor's Pick as the best Quicken alternative because it. To Quicken's: split transactions, recurring transactions, attachments, budgeting and more.
We're working our way through the list of top vote getters on the mac compare site. We added 12-Month Budgets in 2016 and now we're turning our attention to the other top vote getters which include customizable reports and loans. Can you provide more details about what you want with this feature. Is it to be able to do manual entry of mortgage payments and have the principle and interest split automatically calculated or what if analysis on loans to figure out pay off dates, etc.
It's interesting that one person's loan amortization feature is not the same as the next guys. Absolutely same view here, Marcus. I'm glad you're paying attention to this, but this isn't some 'check the votes on the forum and put it on the future features list' thing. This is table stakes - the very first thing Quicken needs after bank accounts.
It applies to EVERYONE who has a mortgage, car loan, student loan, etc. Please do not spend a minute thinking about what this feature needs to include.
Go look at Quicken for Windows and replicate what it does. Get the basics right. When I create a loan, I should be able to tell Quicken the principal, interest rate and term (number of months) and monthly payment. It should then calculate out how much of each payment will go to principal vs. Interest, a split that will change every month as the principal balance drops, and let me set the payment up as a recurring monthly transaction. End of story.
That gets the ball over the net. I don't calculate a payoff balance every month. If I have to call the bank for that, it's not big deal. I DO make a payment every month. Marcus, If I sound a little agitated about this, I am.
I am still running Quicken for Windows under Parallels on my Mac because Q for Mac can't amortize a loan. It is a HUGE pain in the ass. By that I mean that yesterday, I upgraded fromYosemite to El Cap. That took 2 hours. I spent another 4 hours trying to get Parallels to work under El Cap. Still not working.
The only reason I'm doing any of that is that Quicken for Mac can't amortize a loan. This is BASIC, BASIC, BASIC. Please go show this thread to the Product Owner. Please add this feature ASAP. Can you use a mac as a monitor. Top of the stack.
It should be noted that this feature was available in Quicken 2007 for Mac!! The version that I imported my data from.
It is funny that now I have an 'Assets & Loans' section under My Accounts that lists my Mortgage and Car loan but they are now broken and can no longer do the basic principal/interest calculations that the previous version of Quicken 2007 for Mac could. Terrible user experience, and terrible response form Quicken, placing 12 month budgets at the top of the pile based purely on user input? Understand letting users vote up features is a great idea, but at some point Quicken needs to put their foot down and prioritize core functionality that is missing, and causing many of their long term users a lot of grief. Chris, I think they're trying to do exactly what you suggest: address the areas users have ranked the highest priority. If more people were clamoring for the (previously absent) budget functionality than the (still absent) loam amortization functionality, it seems reasonable that they did budget before loans.
