Quicken 2015 for Mac Release Notes
CRITICAL SECURITY UPDATE (Quicken 2015 for Mac version 2.7.0 and earlier)
- The security of our products remains our top priority at Intuit and we will continue to invest to ensure our products have industry-leading protection. As such, we are implementing a required update to our login process to safeguard customers’ sensitive information.
- To ensure uninterrupted usage of Quicken for Mac 2015, you MUST install the latest 2.7.0 (or newer) version.
- In 2.7.0, we updated our sign-in and sign-up process to enable an additional level of login security called Multi-Factor Authentication or “Secure Login”. The goal of Secure Login is to make it more difficult for an unauthorized person to access a computer, network or database. If one factor (such as a password) is compromised or broken, the attacker still has at least one more barrier to breach (such as an email account or access to the target’s mobile phone) before successfully breaking into the target.
- Beginning in November, all customers will require Quicken for Mac 2015 version 2.7 or newer, which supports Secure Login, in order to access Connected Services such as transaction, balance, and quote download.
- When Secure Login is enabled in the coming months you will be required to enter a security code the first time you use Quicken Connected Services (for example, when updating your accounts).
- You will be prompted to login with your Intuit ID and then you will be sent a security code via email (or mobile phone if you’ve added a mobile phone number to your Intuit profile). You must then enter this security code in Quicken before proceeding with your download.
- No. You will be asked once after Secure Login is first turned on. After that, you will only need to complete Secure Login about every two weeks or if you start using Quicken on a different computer.
- Just make sure you include your preferred email address and/or mobile phone number in your Intuit profile. You can update your email address by following these steps:
- In Quicken 2015, choose the Quicken > Preferences menu item.
- Click the Connected Services icon in the Preferences window toolbar.
- Click the Update Email or Intuit ID link to open the accounts.intuit.com web site in your web browser.
- You can also visit Quicken Profile Management in your web browser.
- Security and privacy are fundamental to the design of all our products. We appreciate your patience and partnership during this fundamental but necessary security update.
How to Update Quicken
- Select the Quicken 2015 Menu > Check for updates
Release 2.8.9 (Critical Update)
FIXED: The Intuit product registration service will be shut down on May 31st as part of the separation from Intuit. Without this upgrade, product registration will fail when trying to install on a new computer and you won't be able to use Quicken. Please upgrade now!
General bug fixes:
- Bug Fix: Changed the way Return of Capital is handled across multiple lots. Before it was based on cost basis. Now it will be based on number of shares.
- Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where Add Share transactions mistakenly showed the date added vs acquired.
- Bug Fix: Fixed a sync issue that occurred if mobile and bank transactions were being updated at the same time.
- Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where the text for search results in the Custom Report dialog would disappear when selecting the item above it.
- Bug Fix: Fixed a crashing issue that would occur during sync after deleting a transaction with a split transfer using the mobile app.
Lots of stability fixes:
- Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where the credit limit would sometimes get changed in some Direct Connect accounts.
- Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where transactions were not being auto-categorized for some Direct Connect accounts.
- Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where Intuit ID login would fail if using OS X 10.9.
- Crash: Fixed a crash that could occur when viewing or editing a budget.
- Crash: Fixed a crash that could occur when updating security prices.
- Crash: Fixed a crash that could occur when dragging transactions.
- Crash: Fixed a crash that could occur when a column header tooltip appears in the reconcile window.

- Crash: Fixed a crash that could occur when importing some malformed QIF files.
- Crash: Fixed a crash that could occur when customizing a report and selecting a sub-category that was recently deleted.
General bug fixes and enhancements.
- Enhancement: Support repeated use of date hot keys.
There are 6 hot keys:
W for beginning of the week
K for end of the week
M for beginning of the month
H for end of the month
Y for beginning of the year
R for end of the year
In 2.8.6, you can repeatedly press this key to increase or decrease the week, month or year. For example, if you press the letter R today, the date will change to 12/31/2016. If you press R again it will change to 12/31/2017. Pressing the letter R will continue to increment the year.
- Change: In the past 6 months bond face values started appearing incorrectly in the portfolio view for some customers. The reason for this is that some financial institutions changed the way they sent bond information to Quicken resulting in incorrect bond face values. Because of this we've changed the way Quicken calculates bond values which should result in the correct bond value being shown for the vast majority of bonds. However, this change does mean that a small number of bonds such as savings bonds will no longer work correctly. Unfortunately we can't support both. This brings Quicken Mac's bond calculations in line with Quicken Windows. (Thanks to all the Quicken Live Community users that pointed out this issue including mvitulli and ocashery7.)
- Fixed: Fixed an auto-matching issue that would pick the wrong manually entered transaction after downloading bank information if there was a similar older transaction. (Thanks to Pearl who went out of her way to work with us to solve the issue).
- Fixed: Fixed a crash that could occur when syncing transaction data from a mobile device that may have missing payee or other important transaction details.
- Fixed: Fixed a crash that would occur if creating a sub-category on a sub-category.
- Fixed: Fixed a crash that occurred when choosing a Quicken Connect account as a brokerage.
Fixes that improve your Quicken Mac experience
- Reconcile Starting and Ending Balance no longer defaults to a negative number.
- Note that you should always enter whole numbers (no negative signs) even in Credit Card accounts. Using a negative number will make it impossible to reconcile properly. Big thanks to all of you that brought this to our attention.
- Fixed issue where some transfer transactions converted from Quicken Windows could lose their Reconcile/Cleared Status and become set to "Uncleared."
- Note that you can see the Cleared/Reconciled status of transactions in your account register at any time. At the bottom of your register click Columns option and then check Cleared to turn on this column.
Uncleared = un-checked (standard check-box)
Cleared = checked (standard check-box)
Reconciled = Green Check-mark icon
To set a Transaction to Reconciled without doing a full reconciliation:
Display the Cleared column as mentioned above.
Option + Click on the cleared check-box.
- Fixed a crash that could occur while generating multiple reports.
- Fixed an issue where reprinting Checks produced a blank page on OS 10.11 (El Capitan).

- Quicken will no longer show the “Alerts” item in the sidebar if mobile sync is disabled.
- For new accounts, Quicken will no longer recalculate the opening balance adjustment if transactions are added with the same date as the date on which the initial download and balance calculation occurred.

Known iBank or Moneydance issues
- iBank Import Issues
- Review your stock split transactions. iBank exports these transactions without flagging them as positive splits (for example, 2 for 1) or reverse splits (for example, 1 for 2). As such, if your data contains reverse stock splits, you need to manually update them after import. For easy identification, Quicken flags stock splits with a blue icon in the status column. The import log file will also indicate the names of investing accounts that contain Stock Split transactions (See Help > Show Logs in Finder to view your import log file).
- Interest income transactions without a security are not exported into the .QIF file. To resolve this issue, we recommend that you associate your interest income with a security in iBank, prior to exporting the data into the .QIF file. Or, in iBank, you can change these transactions to deposits and categorize the transaction as interest income. (Alternatively, you can manually enter these transactions in Quicken after import.)
- Some bond transactions may not be imported accurately. If you notice that there is a discrepancy in your balances or holdings even after resolving the above two issues, check your bond transactions for accuracy.
- Price history data is not exported. For this, you need to manually import this data into Quicken through a CSV file. (finance.yahoo.com is a good place to find historical prices that you can download as a CSV file and then import into Quicken.)
- Securities without a ticker symbol are shown with a zero value in your portfolio. You need to manually add a ticker and import the price history for these securities.
- Balances reported in the Log file. iBank exports the expected "Ending Balance" for each account in the .QIF file. After import Quicken will indicate if the ending balance in Quicken does not match reported Ending Balance in the import Log file (See Help > Show Logs in Finder to view your import log file). Discrepancies in Ending Balance could be caused by missing transactions if you choose to export a range that excludes transactions you have entered in iBank. For example, future-dated transactions or very old transactions.
- Moneydance Import Issues
- Opening balance transactions are sometimes not exported from Moneydance into the .QIF file, leading to incorrect account balances. You need to manually enter the opening balance transactions in Quicken after the data is imported.
- If the opening balance is exported in the .QIF file, it shows incorrect date as 12/31/1969.
- ShortSell and CoverShort are exported as Short-Term Capital Gain and Long-Term Capital Gain respectively. This results in incorrect share and cash balances. You need to manually change the transaction type (and enter the shares if they are not displayed) after they are imported in Quicken. For easy identification, Quicken flags these transactions with a blue icon.
- Stock splits are not exported into the .QIF file. You need to manually enter all the stock splits after import in Quicken Mac.
- Asset and Liability accounts are exported as ‘Bank' accounts. Quicken will import all "Bank" accounts as "Checking". For Liability accounts imported in this way, you can go to Account Settings and change the Account Type to Liability. For the Asset accounts, create a new Asset Account in Quicken Mac 2015 and then select all the transactions from the imported account ("Command + a" in register) and then drag-and-drop the transactions to the newly created Asset Account.
- For both import types
- All your accounts will come in as manual (unconnected) accounts. After import you can go to Accounts > Setup Automatic Downloads to see a list of all the unconnected accounts. You will then be guided through automatic download setup.
- Finally, this is a one-time import. You can only import the exported .QIF file into a new, empty Quicken 2015 file. So, make sure you select the all accounts when you export from the non-Quicken products. (If you want to re-import a QIF, you’ll need to go to File > New and start with a fresh data file.)

- Improved report customization (all reports) - The report customization panel has been completely redesigned. Creating and saving custom reports is easier than ever. In addition, the Category Summary report can now include Asset & Liability accounts.
- Enhanced Payee List / Payee Management
- Taming your payees list has never been easier. Choose the Window > Payees menu item and rename payees, merge similar payee names, and hide the names you no longer want to see in your auto-complete lists. Each payee now indicates how many times it's been used and you can click this usage number to instantly see a report for that payee.
- Mobile alerts now show in Quicken (and in Mac Notification Center)
- Those of you that use the mobile app can now get alerts right in Quicken. All the alerts for the accounts you sync (Low Balance, Unusual Spending, Large Purchases, Large Deposits, Bank Fees and more) now appear on the new Alert view as well as in your Mac's Notification Center. Turn on mobile sync and check out the alert settings in Preferences to use this feature.
- More control over security price downloads.
- By default, Quicken will update all security prices when a document is opened and every 60 minutes thereafter. If this is too often for you, you can now go to Preferences > General and turn off this feature and only get quotes when you need them. Plus there is now an easy-to-find Update Quotes button right on the Portfolio view.
- If an attachment can't be uploaded, you are now warned, but syncing to the cloud continues.
- All the custom keyboard shortcuts you use in the register date controls have been added to the reconcile date controls. Now the Starting Balance and Ending Balance date fields will act just like the register date fields.

- Fixed a crash that could occur when hovering the mouse cursor over a register column header on OS X 10.7.

- A ton of Download Matching improvements. For all of you that both manually enter transactions and download from the same account.
- Investing transaction matching! Now manually entered investing transactions will match downloaded transactions. No more manual matching required (though you can still drag-and-drop to match transactions if something is missed).
- Much improved transaction matching for cash & credit accounts. We've completely overhauled our download matching logic. Users that enter manual transactions and also download from the same accounts should see significant improvements.
- Transfer matching. We now attempt to detect matches when you edit a downloaded transaction to make it into a transfer.
- And how could we improve matching without doing the same for Un-matching: Added the ability to un-match a transaction even if you've already edited the matched transaction.
- Merge Securities: Added the ability to merge securities in the Security List. If you see duplicates of the same security in your Portfolio or Security List, you can now merge them to have just one instance. This could also (optionally) be used in the case of a ticker symbol change for merging the old and new symbols while preserving the price history.
- Multiple file import: You can now import more than one 2007 or Quicken Windows file into an existing Quicken Mac 2015 file. (Previously the import option would not be available after the import of the first file.)
- Account Sync options: Now you can choose which Cash & Credit accounts to sync. (Previously we'd sync all Cash & Credit accounts if you turned on the Mobile option.)
- Import Backups: Now we automatically create a backup of your 2007 or Quicken Windows .QXF file prior to import. You can find these backup files by going to Help > Show backups
- New keyboard shortcut: (Ctrl + O) open a register or report in a new window. (Note that you can always double-click on any register or report in the sidebar to open it in a new window)
- Added reset option to Bill Reminder filter bar
- System date setting is now used for register date field.
