Thank you for the Post and sorry about the late response!
I wonder if you are processing employee pay through Pay run and not through "Make Payments". If through "Make Payment" then you could only select one at a time but same thing can be done via processing pay run, which is a better way of processing pay for an employee.
In order to do so, best way is, set up employee to the same pay schedule ( from each individual employee card and then when you Run the pay run > create a new pay run, you could then add all of the employee to bring them together and then generate all in one pay run. I think this is better than running it separately.
And in regards to ABA, at the moment , ABA can be done only for the suppliers. For employees, it is in the plan and will be available in the next builds.
Once again we apologise for the inconvenience caused.
The 08/04/2016 Reckon One update introduced new functionality that allows users to create an ABA file for supplier payments.
The 09/05/2016 Reckon One update introduced new functionality that allows users to create an ABA file for employee payments.
So at the time, when you posted this question, only the supplier payments were eligible for inclusion in an ABA file, employee payments was still a work in progress.
There are four steps to complete before creating a bank payment file within Reckon One.
The legal name field within your book needs to be configured (with your legal entity name) as this information is used in the bank payment file.
To set the legal name for your book, select the Administration menu (the cog icon located in the top right of the book) > Select General settings > Select the General details tab within the Book settings area to access the legal name field.
Each bank account in Reckon One that you want to use (as a payer account) for a bank payment file requires financial institution details to be set.
To set the financial institution details for a bank account, select the Day to day menu > Select Banking > Locate the bank account in the list & click the spanner icon to access the Financial institution details section of the bank account.
Note: The system bank account Cash doesn’t
allow you to configure financial institution details & cannot be used as a
payer account for batch bank payments.
Each contact (i.e. supplier or employee) in Reckon One that you want to include (as a payee) in a bank payment file will need to have their banking details set.
To add banking information to a supplier contact, select the Contacts menu > Select Suppliers > Click on the applicable supplier to access their contact record > Select the Bank details option & add their banking details.
To add banking information to an employee contact, select the Contacts menu > Select Employees > Click on the applicable employee to access their contact record > Select the Employment option > Add their banking details in the Payment section & ensure you select the Direct credit option.
Each payment transaction in Reckon One that you want to be eligible for inclusion in a bank payment file needs to have a payment method selected as Direct Deposit.
To create a bank payment file, select the Day to day menu > Select Banking > Locate the bank account and select the Add bank payment button.
You can add eligible payments to the bank payment using the Add new row option. You can remove eligible payments from the bank payment by clicking the X icon on the right section of payment row/line entry whilst hovering the mouse cursor over the payment row/line entry.
Once you have added/removed the eligible payments for the bank payment, select the Generate file button to create the bank payment (ABA) file.
The bank payment file saves to a download folder location on your computer which is controlled/configured by the web browser that you are using. The bank payment file name defaults to the Reckon One bank account name + the date & time stamp information (yyyymmddhhmmss).
Example: Your bank account name in Reckon One is Business Bank & you generated a bank payment file on the 06/04/2016 at 09:15:45, the default file name will be Business Bank20160406091545.ABA
Once the bank payment (ABA) file has been created & saved
to your computer, you can submit the file to your bank for processing. Not all
banks support ABA files so you may need to confirm this with your bank.
To access the bank payment list screen, select the Day to day menu > Select Banking > Select Bank payments.
The Processed tab show saved bank payments where
an ABA file has been generated. The Unprocessed tab shows saved bank
payments where an ABA file hasn’t yet been generated.
