Direct Deposit Changes
- Automatically have the prenote taken off a new direct deposit account once it has been tested, or have an alert if an account has been prenoted in the previous pay period, and has not been switched off.
- Have a way to prenote a new direct deposit account without having to cut a physical check, while leaving existing direct deposits in place, until the next pay period when the prenote is switched off.

In regards to number 2 Dutch is right:
If you add the new direct deposit prenote (as $0.00 amount) to your existing employee's maintenance file when you generate the time entry and go through the payroll process it will send the test to the bank while also keeping everything else in tack.
We have done it this way forever and never had a problem. Only issue I have seen is that it must be amount = 0.00. You can't have a 100% non-prenote account and a 100% prenote account if there is already existing bank accounts listed. Now THAT would be nice -- I have forgotten to change the 0.00 amount to 100% percent and delete the old account - resulting in a live check for the employee.
1. You may find the globe prenote update routine in Special Routines helpful. This routine could be run as part of the payroll process after a payroll run has been completed to update accounts that were just prenotes.
2. Good idea! I'm wondering if you could include the secondary entry for a new direct deposit as a zero amount when testing the prenote, then update the actual amount after the payroll run is complete to test the prenote?
