Customer Payments cleared and not cleared question
In the list "Customer Payment" I have checks that are marked as cleared and some that are not marked as cleared. I Receive a check for an invoice. I click on the "Receive a payment for this invoice" and then fill out the info in the payment screen and save it. In September I changed from clicking the button at the bottom to of that screen "from Group with other undeposited funds" to "Deposit to Operating Account" (the checking account). I deposit all checks via my phone to the bank and they are available that day. So I do not have any lag time between receiving them in Quickbooks and them being in the operating account. So it seems to me to be more logical to directly deposit them to that account in the payments screen and skip the "Make Deposits" step. But that changed them from appearing with a stamp as "Cleared" and now not. Is this a problem or should I just go on and not worry about it?
