How to resolve Quicken cloud sync error

As we all know that Quicken is one of the creations of Intuit Inc which is commonly known as expense controlling and budgeting management tool. It is used on a large scale by a small businessman or an individual. However, this software is convenient and easy to use when you are familiar with its functions.

But sometimes, users face issues using it. Well, it’s not a new thing to face technical problems because every coin has two phases. And with the advancements of technology, there is no need to worry more about any problematic situation. In order to get support regarding Quicken, you can share your queries with professional customer care executive.

Now, moving further let’s first understand what is the Quicken cloud?

Well, Quicken cloud helps in transmitting your information between Quicken Mobile, Quicken Desktop, and Quicken on the Web. And, after creating a Quicken ID, a Quicken cloud account is automatically created. But we strictly recommends not to use it.

Though, the Quicken Cloud does not give any backup. Therefore, it is not possible to restore Quicken data from the Quicken Cloud. So, you can’t access the Quicken Cloud from anywhere except the desktop and mobile Quicken products. In case if you want to turn off the Cloud sync from your One Step Update then you need to simply uncheck the box next to sync to Quicken Cloud in the One Step Update Settings screen.

The best thing about Quicken Cloud is that it automatically downloads the latest transactions from your banks. You’ll always find the latest transactions on your mobile device or with Quicken on the web. And this will give you the permissions to view and edit transactions from anywhere.

Point to remember: One thing you should keep in mind that the data in the Quicken Cloud is not a backup because the actual data file or data is still stored on your desktop. Hence, the data in the Quicken Cloud is not possible to use in order to restore your Quicken Desktop data.

What happens after you set up mobile and web sync in your Quicken file?

After that, you’ll begin syncing transactions to the Quicken Cloud, and then you can sync from the Quicken Cloud on the Web or to your mobile device. Quicken cloud has some additional features like when you use Quicken Mobile or Quicken on the Web then the Quicken Cloud will store any changes if you have made to your transactions.

So, you need to be sure in order to sync your cloud data on Quicken Desktop(Windows or Mac) before making changes on the desktop software. Otherwise whatever changes you’ll make on web or mobile will be overwritten in your desktop data file.

Information is bi-directional as it moves in both directions between your desktop and the Quicken Cloud, and also from your Cloud account to Quicken desktop. Two-way sync means that transaction updates on the mobile device will sync to your Quicken desktop program and also be added to your Quicken file.

After syncing, you’ll see that everything will match: budget, transactions, balances, and results regardless of where you choose to view your data.

In order to log in to Quicken Mobile and Quicken, you should use your Quicken ID. Your Quicken file associates with your Quicken ID. So, you need to log in with your Quicken ID in order to sync your mobile device to your Quicken file.

After that, the Quicken Cloud data can now be deleted, although at least one data file needs to be synced to the cloud.
