When generating transactions automatically, you may experience substantially slower processing times than you see when you run the preprocessing for transactions.
Generating transactions can take a long time depending on the number of transactions to generate. This is especially true when generating Billing Schedules and Schedules Charges/Credits for the first billing of the new year.
Generate the transactions in smaller batches to speed the process.
NOTE: When generating transactions automatically, Student Billing may show as "Not Responding" in your task manager. This is a normal status. Do not end task on the process.
