Geni Law contains a unique method of speeding up your routine accounts payable duties through a feature called Memorize Checks. Streamline the entry of recurring payables by following these steps.
In the Checkbook Register, identify those checks that are routine or recurring; e.g., rent, office supplies, etc.
Place the cursor on one of the selected recurring items (as shown below by the gray highlight bar) and click on the Memorize Checks button.
You can see here that office supplies has been selected. Geni Law memorizes the check and sends you the following notification:
Click OK to close the notification. Press the Memorize Checks button and an overlay screen appears listing all of the checks you have selected to memorize. The length of the list is unlimited.
To use the Memorize Checks feature:
Click the Memorize Checks button and an overlay screen appears with an empty check entry field at the bottom showing the current date.
Place the cursor on the Check Number field and enter “P.”
Place the cursor on the desired memorized check and press F6. Instantly, in the overlay screen, the new check fills in with the current date. Here you can make any changes if necessary.
Press Ctrl+Enter to save the entry.
The cursor jumps to the next blank entry form at the bottom of the Checkbook Register.
Repeat these steps for each check. After all checks are entered, place blank check(s) in the printer. Be sure that the number of the first check to be printed matches the next check number in Checkbook Register.
Press the WRITE CHECK button (if necessary, confirm the starting check number) to print checks marked with “P.”
The check number(s) will auto-fill in Checkbook Register after check printing is finished.
The Checkbook Register balance updates automatically.
