How do I schedule regular salary transfers to a retirement account with TIAA-CREF?

I can't do a transfer because by the time the money gets to TIAA-CREF, they break up the inputs to small inputs into specific funds. So the amounts on my split salary won't match anything at CREF. I can just enter them as pre-tax expenses, unlinked to TIAA-CREF, but that doesn't seem right.

I'm in Quicken 2017 in Windows 10.

    In Quicken, do you have one TIAA CREF account or many?

    It's one 403(b), but multiple funds. TIAA-CREF doesn't register the total input from my salary, only the broken-down payments to 10 individual funds.

    So, show the single transfer of funds from your paycheck to TIAA, and then multiple purchases that use that cash.

    What keeps you from doing the paycheck transfer to the 403(b) account and then the downloaded fund level transactions from TIAA-CREF use that cash balance?
