Scheduling transactions by client

To schedule a recurring transaction for one client, use the Clients screen. These scheduled transactions can be processed periodically to create actual transactions.

There are three options: Schedule Pmts, Schedule Deps, and Schedule Xfer.

Schedule payments

To schedule a recurring payment for a client, navigate to the blank record at the bottom of the list and follow these steps:

  1. In the Account field, type or select the client’s account to be used for the payment.
  2. Select a payment Category. Optionally, also select a Subcategory.
  3. Select a payment Frequency.
  4. If the payments will be paid directly to the client, check Pay to Client.
  5. If the payments will be paid to a vendor, type or select the vendor in the Pay to Vendor field.
  6. If the payments will be paid to a vendor, select the appropriate vendor address in the Vendor Address field.
  7. Select a payment method. For information about payment methods, see the Payment Methods page.
  8. If you want the client’s mailing address to print on a check, select Mail to Client Addr.
  9. Check Batch Payment if you want to print multiple transactions on a single check or export multiple transactions as a single XEFT.
  10. Check Verify Each Payment if each instance of the payment needs verified before it is processed (for example, if the monetary amount varies by payment).
  11. Leave the Verified box unchecked until you are ready to process the first payment.
  12. Check Receipt Required if you need a receipt for this payment.
  13. Enter the monetary amount of the payment.
  14. If the payments will be made toward a total sum until it is paid off, enter the Total Due.
  15. Enter or select the Next Payment Date. Payments will begin on that date and continue according to your selected frequency.
  16. Optional: Enter or select the End Date for the payments. Leave this blank to continue scheduling the payment indefinitely.
  17. Optional: Check Sort By Client to sort a check paid to a vendor by the client’s name instead of the vendor’s name.
  18. Optional: Add to or alter the Check Memo to be printed on the check. The client’s name and payment category will populate this field automatically.
  19. Optional: Enter payment Notes.
  20. Optional: Enter or select the Start Date of the payments. This is for informational purposes only.
