True up Payment Received Calculation
Currently on the Accounting page the total Paid (month to date) field utilizes the date of the check received for said payment. This can cause issues if you are expecting to see the total of payments received in a month. Example, check date of 01/29/2020, received 02/05/2020, that amount would not show up in the total as the date of the check was from the previous month. This same issue applies to the Payments Received Report. In both cases the date should reference the applied date or at least users should be given the option to either use the check date or the applied date.
I think this would only happen if whomever is applying your payments is manually changing the date to the check date on the Receive Payment screen. At least for us, it defaults to the current date (date received). Our reports always show date paid (definitely not date the check was written) and we don't do anything special. Unless I'm misunderstanding what you're saying?
