There are no other products out there! HELP Biggest issue is that nothing works consistently It is a poorly designed, Horrible product Horrible customer support, Avoid quicken at ALL costs. I would use an excel spreadsheet before I would use Quicken


And they don't CARE!

I have used this program since it came out. Now, today, it is a mess. My software is locked up, items missing from my ledger and this will cause me to spend hours re-creating my data.

Pros

Before now, I would say I like everything about it. I could always count on it to perform as it should and it was updated in a responsible way. this time, I checked to allow upgrade and everything went haywire. And, right at a time when I counted on it to perform as it always had.

Cons

It is no longer reliable. Was I in shock when I opened Quicken to find out that it had been down-graded in stead of upgraded. I had to work 15 hours to get figures re-entered for a report due this evening. As I said it is no longer reliable. I called a contact listed on computer for Quicken repair. Needless to say, I did not have it done!

Wonderful program for personal and small business bookkeeping

Pros

It is very easy to use and reports are easy to pull from the software. It is a very powerful software for the price. You can use an app like Dropbox or OneDrive to keep your data available from anywhere.

Cons

Support/help was unable to assist with creating a report that was complex - probably needed to use Quick Books instead of Quicken for this type of report

Best product out there. Tried others, including the now defunct Microsoft Money, and this is, by far, the best product for the money. Also, now that they are separate from Intuit, there are some great things on the horizon that will take them to another level.

Pros

Easy to use. Uncomplicated when it comes to inputting data. I like that you can use the mobile app and it syncs with the computer system on the desktop version.

Cons

It would be good to have it work without having to use a desktop version. We are so mobile these days and having to sync with the desktop is a headache.

This is the go-to software for new business owners. It is easy to use, offers tons of functions and features and pairs with both my POS and my bank.

Great way to track financials for a small to medium rental portfolio. We started with 1 rental unit and are still using it with over 150 units.

Pros

Easy to use & very versatile. All functions revolve around check register and chart of accounts (categories). Project based functionality uses Tags (classes) which allow to split transactions to multiple projects (e.g., rental units). On-line integrations with ALL financial institutions.

Cons

Lacks industry specific functions (there is no where to capture rental unit or lease information). maintenance records are limited to the financial transaction record.

Pros

The product is easy to use and has excellent help functions. Check writing and reconciliation is simple and effective. The ability to run reports and summarize by payee, category etc and sort the data is a great tool for you G/L posting. The product also help alert missing check numbers and duplicates.

Cons

Would be great if the product had a feature to print mailing labels from the payee file. It would also be nice to have an easy way to have multi address for the same payee.

N/A

Great for getting your finances in order and starting to see big picture where you and your money is. Still has some work to do with compatibility with banks as well as features.

Pros

What I like most about this product is the screenshot you get of all your accounts. Being able to see every account in one place really allows you to better control your finances and budget. I am in the application frequently updating downloads and seeing how my money and accounts move. I also really enjoy the breakdown of categories because I can go back and see just how much I spent on Rent, Groceries, Shopping, etc. per month, per year, etc. It's really nice.

Cons

What I have become quite frustrated with is the logging in and my intuit ID. Anytime the systems logs me out, for some reason, whenever I log back in, it just doesn't take me to my normal page, it creates a new page and new file for me. It's very nerve racking and it has been occurring more frequently. Also, I do feel the budget section of the application could use some work. I really liked it in the beginning, but now it is slightly a pain to use and have not used it since.

Didn't like the forced upgrade to the latest version - some features were disabled on the old version until it was upgraded.

Pros

The price is right. Automatic download from banks is very useful. Automatic backups good for security.

Cons

Some features are somewhat awkward to use. The menus can be confusing. Naming, saving of various files is not intuitive.

For some reason I have transactions "disappear " out of my checking account, very frustrating.

Pros

nothing in particular, I like the loan calculator. I also like that Quicken has a app I can use on my phone.

Cons

Very hard to get credit cards and bank account to automatically down load, I would like to set up automatic payments for my checking account, but only want them to show up in my checking account when they are due.

Pros

Puts all your finances in one place, updates all accounts with minimal keystrokes rather than having to go to each website yourself (Saving lots of time) works like an on-screen checkbook. See your net worth accounts and liabilities in one place. Navigation is easy as a click of the mouse.

Cons

Intuit, the author, recently sold Quicken to an Investment Group. When Microsoft dropped MS Money, Quicken became the Monopoly in the market. Now the new company made some changes and icons are different, some screens have pop-up windows that don't work right, and the internet is full of complaints from long time users. Most of the glitches I found are minor, but changes were made so that everyone had to renew in-order to be able to access all your accounts online with Quicken, a strategy they may use to continually force upgrades and fees! Watch for this. This is what happens when someone sees a chance to capitalize on a monopoly!

I'll give an example downloading my 401k comes with 6 placeholders and an incorrect amount. 2 phone calls to support and over an hour time not a single person can explain why they occurred and how to resolve in order to reconcile the true amount. Another example, when setting up an asset... say something as simple as your house! It's advertised to coordinate and track your mortgage for your net worth but yet it can't calculate your mortgage. It asks you what you paid for the property legitimate question, but then when you sync with your mortgage it tells you that what you paid for your home is the actual outstanding principal in your mortgage and puts your down payment as a balloon. No way to go back and change this. I though perhaps an issue with the bank sync, but 2 more rental properties added with exact same results all different institutions

Pros

simple checking and savings accounts seem to work but then you could spend a lot less for the basic quicken

Cons

Everything I can think of..... if your looking for a product that works with your financial institutions.... this is not it. anything with even a remote amount of complexity like investments rental property mortgage details do not work. Its all wrong

Pros

Quicken Rental Property Manager is, in my opinion, the best product to track finances, investments and business income/expenses all in one spot and on your desktop versus having that information only on the internet.

Cons

Not the best solution or the easiest to use solution for tracking rental properties. Additionally, the new releases of the product often contain very little in improvements over the prior year. However, what I like least is that the software is often released when it still appears to be in beta testing. A lot of software bugs and often unusable until the software patches are released over a period of months.

Works well for personal finances - checking, savings, credit cards

Pros

Easy to learn, set up account. Can also use the software for my other businesses and personal stuff. Lots of ways to run reports that are useful. Nice to be able to download transactions from my bank and credit card accounts.

Cons

End of year tax schedules have bugs, Income reminders for rent payments do not show up correctly, Support is through a forum and they mainly tell you to run a file validation and that's it, Option to "Link a bill reminder to an online account" has never worked, New Zillow feature to asses value of property does not work. The only way I got good support was to pay another dollar for premium support and spent hours on the phone with a tech as he had me restore old backups trying to find a file that didn't cause the error... We never did find one that didn't cause the error. I am limping along with how it is working and currently looking for other software for my rental properties.

Not much new or different than 2015, a little blander experience as the colors and perhaps fonts have been changed. New features are of minimal value, although the connection to Zillow for property "values" is a nice touch. Software needs a major overhaul to refresh and correct various issues that cause the software to crash. Although I have to admit, even though I purchased the software only after build R3 was released, I haven't experienced as many crashes as I have in the past. Sad that I find that impressive, but that's how bad the software has been in the past.

Pros

Not much of a pro, but there is no other desktop software that does as much as this one.

Cons

Being the only option with as many features, it is often simply "refreshed" every year versus adding any significant improvements. Also, the software should work right out of the box, not 3 or 4 versions down the road. Ridiculous that purchasers are beta testing the software for the first 3 or 4 months.

Overall this is a solid, user friendly product. I have used versions 2014-2017. It is very useful for keeping your rental property finances separate from other areas. I especially like the reporting feature which makes year-end tax work a snap. There are some quirks that have turned out to be user challenges. The technical support is excellent.

Pros

Easy to keep finances for different areas separated. Easy entry of bills - especially if you download the transactions. No problem handling large file sizes or for many years. Can be used as simple or complex as needed.

Cons

Some quirks with the automatic name recognition tool when downloading transactions.

Advice to Others

If you have rental property this tool is a must. year-end reporting is a snap. Although I have never experienced a data loss caused by the program, definitely use the backup feature each time you use the product.
