How do I print a check?

This article explains how to print checks in Traction. It is recommended that you use the one page (check above, two stubs below) check style offered by Nelco.

Note: Check printing functions best if you are using Google Chrome browser on your computer.

1.  Click on the Dashboard icon at the top right of your screen. Select Accounting and then choose Account Register. 

2.  Select the account that you wish to write the check from.  Click on the Add New button and select Add New Payment.

3.  Fill in the details for the payment and then click on the arrow to the right of the Save button.  Select Save and Print Check and fill in the desired Check Printing Options.   

Note:  The first time you attempt to print a check use plain printer paper.  Compare this sample to your Nelco check and make adjustments in the Check Printing Options screen.  Once any adjustments are made, click on the Print button to print the check.


If you ever need to update your Check Printing Options, but selected Do not show again, you can access the same settings from the Account Register by clicking the Gear icon.



Note:  If your pop-up blocker is turned on,  you may not see a print preview.

 4.  A preview screen will appear that will allow you to download a copy of the check or print.  If you are satisfied with the information and layout of the check, click on the Print icon in the top right corner of the screen.  


5.  The option screen for your printer will appear.  Select your settings and click on the Print button.  Next, close the preview tab to return to Traction.
6.  The transaction has been recorded in the Account Register.
