my company has quick book desktop pro 2016. The software automatically groups payments to the same vendor on one check even if the payments are to different departments or need to go to different addresses. If we dedicate a printer to quick books is it possible to automatically print out checks so that payments aren't grouped together?
Assigning a printer will not have any effects when paying your vendor, dd27.
Assuming that this is about paying a bill, grouping payments is ideal if you create bills per department (one bill is to one department). In this setup, you can select the outstanding bills per department per payment.
On the other hand, if one bill has multiple departments (class), you can make partial payments per bill. Let's say one bill has two items which are for Departments A and B. You can pay the item for Department A first, then another payment for the item for Department B.
