To print payroll checks (paychecks) from QuickBooks Online, you will need the following requirements:
Firefox / Chrome Browser
Adobe PDF Reader
Subscription to QuickBooks Online Payroll (30 Day Trial is available)
Once enrolled in a QuickBooks Online account and QB Online Payroll, you can follow the guide to setup printing payroll checks for your employees. Starting in Feb. 2014, QuickBooks Online has a new home screen interface, similar to the 2013/2014 desktop editions. [Click on the image to see more details.]
Click on the “gear” symbol in the upper right corner of the home screen.
Mouse over the gear icon and it will open the setup menu screen. Click on the Payroll Settings to start configuring Paychecks.
Once the payroll settings (or preferences) are displayed, you can click on the Paycheck Printing option to configure how the checks will print.
The following will show how to manage user permissions.
Each user can have multiple permissions settings:
Supervisory – use this setting if you wish to make the user an administrator.
Restricted to certain controls – the user will only be able to see and select certain control records and layouts
Restricted to certain banks – the user will only be able to select and print from certain bank accounts
Print deposit tickets – the user has access to print deposit tickets
Print blank checks – the user has access to print blank checks
Maximum check amount – maximum dollar amount the user can print
Default control – change the default control record to use when logged in
It is recommended that you change the “Admin” password. Be sure to make a note of this password. You will be unable to gain access if you don’t have a password. You may not delete the “Admin” user or change its user ID and it always has supervisory permissions.
Change Password: Enter new password and then reenter same password to insure typing accuracy. NOTE: If you delete the password or enter no password, you will allow the user to sign on without entering a password.
Maintain ID / Name: Enter or change the User ID and the Full User Name (optional).
Permissions List: mark the permissions granted to the user. If the user is to be restricted to use only certain control records mark the “”Restricted to Certain Controls” box. If the user is restricted to certain controls and the user is to be restricted to certain banks within those controls check the “Restricted to Certain Banks” box. Supervisory permissions grants access to all features. Only users with supervisory permissions may access the MultiCHAX Setup program.
Enter the maximum dollar amount the user may print a check for. If you enter 0 (zero), the user has unlimited dollar permission. If the user attempts to print a check with a greater dollar value than shown, a message will pop up on the screen and the printed check will be marked “VOID”.
Click “Change Default Control” to change the default control for this user. A list of control record this user is authorized to access will be displayed. If security is disabled only the Admin user default control will be used.
Restrict User to Certain Controls. Highlight the control and click the appropriate arrow to move from or to the authorized list.
Restrict User to Certain Banks. Highlight the bank and click the arrow to move from or to the authorized list.
This is an option that is accessed in the toolbar of the setup control record window. In this screen you can turn on or off verbiage that is printed on your check face, such as “Pay to the Order Of”, “Amount”, “Check Number”, and the “Bottom Signature Line”. Also if these features are turned on, you can adjust where they are placed on your actual check face.
To adjust the positioning of the selected feature you must increase or decrease the number currently designated. Our measurements are in 1/10”, so you rarely need to enter in whole numbers.
Increasing the number in the horizontal offset moves the field to the right and decreasing the number moves it to the left.
Increasing the number in the vertical offset moves the field down and decreasing the number moves it up.
This section of the screen tells our software where on the virtual page (the printout of the check information from your accounting program) to obtain the data needed for printing the check information on your check form.
Remember the Input Control Section tells MultiCHAX where to get information not where to put it. You must use the Output Offsets Screen Section to change the placement of data on the face of the check. You must use the grid printout previously prepared to obtain the input coordinates needed.
Top Print Line of Stub The Top Print Line of Stub, is the horizontal line paralleled to the beginning of the stub information sent out by your program.
Bottom Print Line of Stub The Bottom Print Line of Stub should be the horizontal line paralleled to the end of the stub information sent out by your program plus 1 number increment. By adding 1 to the number you will get the entire portion of your stub.
Void Pattern Most accounting systems will print a message indicating that a check is void. The system will void checks for many reasons e.g. overflow stubs, printer alignment, etc. If the void pattern and coordinates together can be set to recognize a voided check, the MultiCHAX system will suppress printing of the MICR characters, suppress the printing of the signature, if one is normally printed, and will print a “VOID” indication on the check. The pattern consists of any characters which are always printed by the accounting system on only voided checks, starting in the coordinate position and continuing for the maximum length entered with the coordinates. The pattern must match exactly for the check to be considered void.
