Bill and income reminders make paying your bills a lot easier. When reminders become due, you can choose what happens next—Quicken can alert you, or Quicken can enter a transaction into the register for you automatically.

Tell me a bit more about how reminders work

At startup, Quicken checks for any bill or income reminders that are due or past due (that is, they have become due since the last time you used Quicken). If it finds any, one of two things will happen:

  • If you selected Automatically Enter when you created the reminder, Quicken automatically enters it as a transaction in a register without asking you for confirmation.
  • If you selected Remind Me when you created the reminder, Quicken displays the reminder in several convenient locations where you can choose how you want to handle the reminder.

How you handle your reminders in one area is reflected in all other areas of Quicken, so work wherever you feel comfortable.

For each reminder that is due, one or more of the following options will be available for each of your reminders. Choose what you would like to do.

Why don't I see this option?

The Skip this one option is not available if you have selected a reminder that is not the immediate next due reminder. Reminders must be entered into the register in the order in which they are due.

Delete a reminder

To delete a reminder

  1. Go to the Bills & Income tab. The default will be to view Bills, but you can pick the sub-tab Income & Transfers if the reminder is for one of those transaction types.
  2. For the reminder you want to delete, go to the Action column and click the down-arrow for the transaction you want to delete.
  3. Select Delete this instance and all future instances.

    You also have the option to skip a single reminder using the Skip this one option.

  4. You will be asked to confirm your choice. Click Yes.

The reminder will be deleted.
