About the Quicken on the Web

Quicken on the Web is a companion to our Quicken desktop applications. It is not designed to be your only Quicken application. When using your desktop Quicken application with Quicken for the Web, the key is synchronization. Always sync Quicken (desktop or web) before and after each session. Information cannot be shared between the apps unless you sync. Be sure to use before and after every session.

What can I do in Quicken on the Web?

You can view account transactions as well as account totals, spending, budgets, bill & income reminders, and investments.

You can add and delete transactions, as well as designate categories, tags, notes or other information for transactions. You can also add categories and tags.

What can’t I do in Quicken on the Web (but can do on the desktop app)

You can't add or delete accounts, budgets, renaming rules, or memorized payees. You also cannot generate reports.

Do I have to use Quicken on the Web?

Quicken on the Web is a convenient way to use Quicken, but it does not have all of the power and options of Quicken for Windows. You do not need to use Quicken on the Web to use Quicken for Windows. If you started with Quicken on the Web, and would prefer to use Quicken for Windows, you can download the latest software version at www.quicken.com/download

How can I tell which data file (dataset) Quicken on the Web is accessing?

Select the profile icon in the bottom left corner of your screen (The icon should the first letter in your name surrounded by a circle). You can find your list of data files under Finances. The data file (dataset) in use will have a check mark  by it.

I synced my account but I’m having one of the following issues…

  • I’m getting a message that says, No synced financial accounts.

  • I don’t see my accounts in Quicken for the Web.

  • My accounts are not updating

  • The accounts I see don't match my desktop

If you are having one of the above issues, check to see if you are accessing the same data file (dataset) as your desktop application. Often, people have more than one data file, and you may be accessing the wrong one. To switch data files in Quicken for the Web:

  1. Select the profile icon in the bottom left corner of your screen (The icon should the first letter in your name). You can find your list of data files under Finances. The data file (dataset) in use will have a check mark √ by it.

  2. Select the data file (dataset) that matches the one you are using for your desktop application.

  3. Update your accounts .

Why am I missing Transactions?

If you are missing transactions you were expecting to see on Quicken for the Web, there may be a few causes.

Mismatched data files
After signing into the Quicken for the Web, you are given a list of data files associated with your Quicken ID. Be sure that the file you selected matches the file you are using in your Win/Mac application.

Synchronization issues
When using the Quicken desktop app and Quicken for the Web together, the key is synchronization. Always sync Quicken before and after each session. Information cannot be shared between the apps unless you sync. Be sure to perform an update  before and after every session on your desktop. To update Quicken for the Web, select .

Are the transactions you are expecting to see still pending with your bank?
Like the Quicken desktop software, Quicken for the Web will only display transactions that have posted with the bank. Transactions showing as "pending" on the bank's end will not display in Quicken for the Web.

Why are my balances off/different from the desktop application?

Quicken for the Web has three different ways of calculating your balance:

  • Today’s Balance: The balance of all transactions entered as of as of the last refresh / update.

  • Online Balance: The balance of your account according to your financial institution. This could be different from your current balance if, for example, you manually recorded a check in Quicken but it has not yet cleared your financial institution.

  • Projected Balance: The projected balance is the balance of all transactions entered in the account register, including future-dated transactions such as postdated checks and online payments that have been sent but not yet processed

Quicken for the Web may be displaying a different balance option from your desktop version. To choose a balance option:

  1. Select  at the top of your accounts bar.

  2. Select your preferred balance option.
