Scheduling bill payments

Scheduling your bill payments with My Money can save you time and help you remember to pay your bills when they’re due. Many bills, such as rent and insurance payments, occur at regular intervals and are always for the same amount. Other bills occur less regularly, or the amount varies from month to month. You can schedule all your bills, income and transfer transactions, such as paycheck deposits or monthly transfers from checking to savings.

After you schedule a transaction, My Money either reminds you about it or records it in your register automatically when it is due.

When you schedule financial transactions—including bill payments—in My Money, you can quickly get a visual overview of your projected financial cash flows.

Setting up a recurring bill only takes a few moments:

1. Create a transaction that you will be memorizing as a repetitive, in this example a sample electricity bill from Florida Power and Light (FPL)


2. Once the transaction is registered you can memorized it by going to Account Tools - Quick Edit - Memorize Transaction


3. Enter the complete details of the bill and then click OK.


4. Repeat this procedure for all of your bills that occur on a periodic basis.

Once your bills and deposits are entered you can view them by:

  1. Using the View-List Memorized Transactions Menu, or
  2. Clicking on a Image:Favorites.png image on a toolbar, or
  3. By using a keyboard shortcut (Control-t on Windows and Linux systems, Command-t on MacOS)


Modifying bills or deposits

If you wish to make changes to a recurring bill, you can either click Edit on the Memorized Transactions view or you can switch into List Manager and edit Memorized Transactions from there


Cash flow Forecast

Once you have scheduled bills and deposits you can quickly view your projected account balances by clicking on a Quick Analytics-Balance Forecast menu. You can adjust forecast intervals to get an accurate picture of your cash flows and resulting balances.
