Advise your Billing Tree Representative of your requirements in this regard when you set up your account with so that you have enough logins to meet your needs.

If you use multiple signons with the module, you will need to run a batch Reconcile ACH History for EACH login, SEPARATELY, that your company uses.

If your company uses only one global login, then Users of CV11.6.2.7 and higher who are also licensed for the Scheduler Module now have an enhanced automation with the addition of the Reconcile process being added to the Scheduler Task list of options. You may run this process offline and unattended. Contact us at sales@collect.org for

Posted Date Blank On Recurring

This switch provides the preference option to either have the interface (a) write the date the arrangement was set up into the the Posted Date OR (b) leave the Posted Date blank for each transaction written into the transaction tab for a Recurring ACH arrangement.

If you leave the switch unchecked, it will use the date the arrangement was set up. If you use this preference, you should also see Company Details, "Statement uses payment date" preference switch to decision how your system will select which transaction date range to include on your client Remittance Statements: (i) the Payment Date range or the (ii) Posted Date range. If you do not check this Company Detail switch ON when leaving this ACH Setup switch OFF, then a consequence would be inclusion of ACH payments that have not taken place yet and showing up on a single month's client Statement/ Invoice.

If you check this switch ON, then your Recurring ACH arrangements will be written to the Transaction Tab with the applicable Payment Dates and Posted Dates will remain blank until the payment is finalized/processed via Reconcile ACH History. At that time, the blank Posted Date field will be updated to be the actual Posted Date. If you use this preference, and all your transactions of any type contain an actual Posted Date, then you would also want to leave the Company Detail switch for "Statement uses payment date" switched OFF (unchecked).
