Renaming Rules in the Subscription Release of Quicken for Mac

Product Version
Mac 2019

Overview

The 5.12.0 release of Quicken for Mac 2019 allows you to set renaming rules for your payees. You can now:

  • Rename a payee that will automatically create a rule so that you won't have to rename it in the future.
  • Specify detailed rules for payee renaming precision.
  • Define Payees that you don’t want renamed. The Payee name will stay as is when it comes from the bank.
  • Sync renaming rules so that mobile and web transactions are downloaded just like they are on Mac.
  • Rename existing transactions and correct past payee naming mistakes.
  • View, add, modify, or delete renaming rules in the new Payees & Rules window
