Payee Differentiation for Check Pay Payees in New Bill Manager

The new Bill Manager has a fixed length field for Payee Name in the pop-up window used to select which payee you want when initiating a Check Pay. If the company name fills the field and you have more than one account/ policy with that payee, you can't tell which one to select. Yes, you can alter the company name to differentiate but I would rather leave the company name as the payee wants on payments. As an example in my case, I have several policies with State Farm Insurance Companies where the company name is the same but the policy number and addresses are different. If Quicken would add the account/ policy number along side the company name, the issue would be resolved. It looks like you might already be doing this with Quick Pay.

    It sounds like this is information that would go in the Memo field of the check.

    When you're setting up a new Check Pay payee, the Add Payee dialog has a field called account number. This field supposedly can be used to differentiate between 2 or more separate billing accounts at the vendor/biller, e.g., your car insurance policy number and your home owner's insurance policy number.
