Auto pay of online bills

With Quicken Billpay, Quicken would retrieve my account balances and AUTOMATICALLY pay the amount designated (either full balance or ???).
Now we have bill manager, NONE of this works.
Does Bill Manager support this valuable function?
Thanks,
Rusty

    I believe the answer is No.
    For best results and because you're always paying the full credit card balance ...
    To avoid missed payments, I recommend you bypass Quicken Bill Manager altogether. Logon directly to the biller's website and authorize them to direct debit the next and all future payments from your checking account. The biller will make an electronic debit on the due date and you don't have to worry about being late.
    In Quicken just record a scheduled reminder that does not execute as an online payment into your account register on or before the Due Date and before you download transactions from the bank or credit card containing the debit transaction. That will allow Quicken to match your register transaction to the downloaded data and not cause any further issues.

    Thank you for your kind response.
    It is VERY disappointing that a software company would "down-grade" such a great function to nothing...
    I have followed your advice, but resent that Intuit removed this wonderful function that I've used for decades...
