If you have a checkbook that you use to issue checks, you might want to record the check numbers in MoneyWiz. In order to do this, you first need to enable this feature.
Enabling the checkbook for your accounts
The checkbook register has to be enabled per account. This means that you might enable it for one account but not for the other.
Please note that it is enabled by default for newly created accounts if your local currency is set to USD.
In order to verify that the checkbook register is enabled for your account or enable it, start editing your account. There are two ways of doing this:
- double click on the account name in the sidebar,
- right-click (or left-click while holding control key on your keyboard if you have right-click disabled) on the account name in the sidebar and select Edit.
Once the account properties window opens, either swipe to the left on your track pad or use the tabs on top to switch to Extended tab (you can also click on the small circles at the bottom).
In order to make it possible to enter checks in this particular account, this check box needs to be checked. In order to disable the feature, remove the check. Once you make your changes, click Done.
Entering checks when entering transactions
Start creating new transaction or open an existing one for editing. Depending on your Transaction layout settings, you might see the check number field immediately or you might need to click on the Show all label to reveal hidden fields.
You can type the check number here or click the + button to have MoneyWiz automatically issue the next check number for you.
Please note that it is currently not possible to reset check number count.
