Create, edit, or delete memorised transactions

Learn how to create and manage repeating transactions in QuickBooks Desktop.

Never miss a transaction again. Let QuickBooks memorise it for you so you get a reminder every time it's due. QuickBooks can automatically enter your memorised transactions to save time.

You can see your memorised transactions at any time. Go to the Lists menu and select Memorised Transaction List.

Create a memorised transaction

  1. Enter the transaction the way you want it to show up each month. Don’t select Save. If a field contains info that may change, leave the field blank. For example, leave the Memo field blank on a recurring check so you can enter a different memo when you need to.
  2. From the Edit menu, select Memorise [Transaction Name]. For example, Memorise Check.
  3. Enter a Name. Then, select how you want QuickBooks to handle it.
    • Add to my Reminders List.
    • The transaction will be added to the Memorised Transactions section of your reminders list. When you choose this option, fill in the How Often field.
    • Do Not Remind Me.
    • The transaction won’t be added to your reminders list or added automatically. You can use this as a template for transactions that repeat from time to time.
    • Automate Transaction Entry.
    • The transaction will be entered when it's due. When you choose this option, remember to fill in the How Often and Next Date fields.

Tips:

  • If you set up an automatic schedule for a transaction, make sure your Next Date is set to a day in the future.
  • When you fill in the Number Remaining, note that it includes the Next Date transaction.
  1. Enter any other info, then select OK.
  2. Select Save & Close or Save & Next.
