For clients who consolidate multiple payments to employees who receive live, printed checks, those will be printed from Consolidated Paychecks, rather than All Batches.

How to: Print Consolidated Paychecks

Step 1: While in the desktop check printing application, under Payroll, click Consolidated Paychecks


Click In Process to show consolidated paychecks that need printing, and use the Actions dropdown to print.



Note: Consolidated paychecks that are checks to be printed stay in the In Progress tab until they are printed, and then they move to the completed tab. If a multi-project company is used, the printer must navigate to a project within the company where paychecks are consolidated.
