FAQ's

Can I set a lockout date for my year-end or month-end process?

You don't need to do a journal entry to close out the figures for the financial year end but it is good practice to set a lockout date so that users are not able to make changes once the financial year end has been closed or the month end has been closed. You can do this by setting the lockout date as above.
