Yes. For a SX that requires you to do something (write a check, go to the ATM, 
whatever). But a direct deposit of one's pay, or automatic withdrawal for 
mortgages and/or car loans should not require action on my part. I just want 
to be notified of those.

So the Since Last Run Dialog could be something like:
The following transactions have been posted:
1 Weekly Pay
2 Mortgage Payment
3 Auto Loan

The following transactions are scheduled to be posted:
[ ] Credit Card
[ ] Utility Bill
[ ] Cash Withdrawal
[ ] All transactions
Select the transactions to post.

I check on the ones I want to post, or select All transactions to have them 
all get posted, then run thru the approprate dialogs for each individual
