After my initial sadness about these missing features, I did go on to find Quicken 2015 Canadian Edition did have some useful new tools for me.
The official website says the following features are useful: These are all useful things for investing folks (like me) to help with tracking their investments.
One of the nice perks of this blog is that folks like to hear my opinions on books and utilities, and this time I was lucky enough to get a copy of Quicken 2015 Canadian Edition.
For full disclosure, I am a Quicken “fanboy”, as I have been using it for about 15 years, I will try to have a balanced point of view on the utility (but I do use it, and will continue to use it).
There are other tools around, but this tried and true tool works great (for me) and can make your life simpler.

I am still wrestling with the automatic update function with the banks.
I suggest you give it try for a few weeks and you may agree that there isn't a finance application with the capabilities of Banktivity 6.I should use the business functions more, and if I do that I will have a separate review of that functionality.It was interesting that Intuit seems to have changed their file formats so the first thing that the install does (after removing the old version of Quicken) is convert your data files to a new format.Now that Banktivity has been released, the developer is getting the necessary feedback to fix the serious problems and will address the non serious problems as time moves forward.I myself stated I was disappointed with Banktivity 6 but version 6.02 is a big step forward and I am quite sure the developers will continue to fix any problems.Given the time of the season Quicken is a great way to organize yourself for the holidays and plan your finances for the new year.I think this is as good a tool for most folks to track their spending.It is true Banktivity 6 has some small problems that need addressing as does all new software releases.Developer's aren't aware of every bugs & problems in-house until the application is actually released to the public and the users can give their feedback.Another interesting feature (that is not new in this release) is the ability to attach images (like scanned receipts and such) to a transaction, thus you are able to track those things and can produce the receipt if requested (as well).I took advantage of the update to set a password on my file, so that if it somehow got into the wrong hands it would take a little work to be able to get the data out of it.
