Upcoming Bill list
The upcoming bill list shows you all the bills that will be paid in the coming month or whatever period is defined. This list is ordered by date, with the bills coming due soonest at the top. Bills, by definition, are scheduled transactions that have a negative amount. The bills list has a number of elements:
- Payee - The name of the biller being paid. On the second line, you'll see the account from which the bill is being paid.
- Due Date - When the bill is due or the date when it will be paid.
- Amount - The amount of the bill due.
- Payment Status: See Quick Pay Payment Status or Learn about Check Pay for more information.
- Action Buttons - The action button changes depending on the type of bill and the state of the bill.
- Auto Enter - There is no action button if the bill is set to Mark as Paid automatically on the scheduled date. The words Auto Enter appear.
- Mark as Paid - If the bill isn't set to be auto-entered, then this button is available. Clicking it will convert the scheduled transaction to an actual transaction in the register.
- Pay Now - Bill Pay items that have not been sent yet have the Pay Now button. Clicking it will "send" the payment request to the Bank Bill Pay service for payment. It won't actually be paid now but will be paid on the designated date.
- Menu - Click on the three dots to get to the Bill menu.
- Pay Now: Pay the bill using your usual payment service, (Quick Pay, Check Pay, Bank Bill Pay).
- Skip this Instance - Skip this instance of the bill. You may do this if the bill was paid by someone else.
- Pay with Quick Pay: Use the Quicken Quick Pay service to pay the bill.
- Pay with Check Pay: Use the Quicken Check Pay service to pay the bill.
- Edit Payee: Change the details for that biller, such as the name, address, and payment information.
- Edit All Instances - Edit the scheduled date and recurrence of the bill.
- Link eBill: Turn manual bill into an online bill by linking to the biller's website.
- Delete Series - Delete all future transactions reminders.
