Yes. I didn't realize you could print checks from the register. If I do so will QB know to credit the payment to the proper vendor in Pay Bills?

What QB Help has done a very poor job of is to explain how the Pay Bills and Check Register work together!

The problem is, at least as I am writing checks under Pay Bills, there IS no memo field to fill out. I know I'm supposed to print checks under Transactions somehow but the tutorial is poorly written.

Any ideas?

Hey there, Treasurer490.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts about printing checks. Your feedback helps us create a better experience for all of our customers.

 

Allow me to join the conversation and provide some additional information about this.


Currently, there’s not an automatic way of having the check number to appear in the memo field. While we don't have this option available, I’ll submit this idea on your behalf to our product engineers.


They love to hear your voice as well. I recommend sending your request to the development team. They're always considering customer suggestions when deciding what to include in future updates.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Go to QuickBooks at the top menu bar, then choose Preferences.
  2. On the Preferences pane, select Feedback.
  3. Mark the box for Enable sending usage data to Intuit.
  4. Close the Preferences window.

This information should point you in the right direction.

 

Should you have any questions or concerns, post a comment below. I'll get back to assist you further. Have a good one.
