I changed some of the names on the subcontractor list and is is still printing the old name? How to fix this?

Good Afternoon, @Leszek

 

It's great to see a new face here in the Community. I'm here to put your mind at ease with your checks printing the old contractor name. 

 

Let's double-check to make sure that the name was updated on the contractor list.

 

Here's how: 

 

  1. Go to the Payroll tab on the left-hand menu bar. 
  2. Select the Contractors section. 
  3. Locate the contractor and ensure the name is correct/changed. 

 

If the name is correct, please provide me with a screenshot or other details to help me determine the best solution for your business. Follow the steps below on how to edit the contractor's information if it wasn't right. 

 

  1. Go through steps 1-2 from above. 
  2. Find the contractor and click on them. 
  3. Press the Edit (Pencil) icon. 

 

 

       4. Change the information needed and hit Save

 

 

That's all there is to it. For a future reference, here are a few guides to help you and your business: 

 

 

 

After doing these steps, your contractor's name should appear correctly on the check. I want to ensure that you're able to get back on track. I'm only a post away if you have any other questions. Have a great day!
