Check Information


On the Check Information page enter the Check Date, the Pay Period from and to, and verify the First Check #. The number of checks and vouchers is displayed to the right of the First Check # field.

 

You have the option to Email Vouchers and can also choose from among the following options:

 

Do not process ACH direct deposits (Print checks for all): Selecting this option prints checks regardless of ACH Direct Deposit settings on the employee's record.

Do not accrue time off hours: Selecting this option prevents Time Off Hours from accruing based on this payroll run.

Print in department sequence: Selecting this option causes checks to group and print by department.

Print time off available hours: Selecting this option prints remaining Time Off Hours on the check stub.

 

Emailing Vouchers - Setup

 

When the option to Email Vouchers is selected in order for an employee to receive a voucher by email they must have a valid ACH account on their employee record that is set to Distribute by Percentage or Distribute by Dollar Amount. In addition, they must have both of the following:

 

Active email address on employee record

Social Security Number on employee record (used for securing voucher PDF)

 

If an employee has no active email address a voucher prints for that employee. If an employee has an active email address but no Social Security Number a voucher does not print for that employee and they are not emailed. The administrator is notified by email of any employees who do not have Social Security Numbers on their record. Once the Social Security Number is added to an employee record the voucher is queued to be emailed.

 

Emailing Vouchers

 

When the option to Email Vouchers is selected and after the check run has been finalized, any voucher emails are queued for sending to your mail server. Make sure that the email configuration has been properly set up (More Information). The program sends jobs to your mail server approximately once per day.

 

Vouchers are sent as secured PDF files. The password is the last four digits of the vendor's Social Security Number or Federal ID (for organizations).

 

Customers who are self-hosted cannot email vouchers unless the user agent is configured properly. Please reference How to Use User Agents in the Financials for instructions.

 

Click the OK button when ready to move forward in the posting process. There are up to three stages of the posting process before finalization:
