If you print checks outside the system and haven’t set up your checking information, you’ll get an error page. But, this isn’t anything to fret about.

  1. Click the Print Checks button, the payment status changes to "Paid" regardless if the checks are actually printed. This allows your payment records to accurately reflect within the system.
