Microsoft has recently deprecated a setting found in the Batch transfer rules tab of the General ledger parameters form found in this document.
Synchronous is no longer a valid option to select as a transfer mode. Selecting Synchronous and saving the parameters form will result in an error message:
“The synchronous option is deprecated. Use either Asynchronous or Scheduled Batch”
The valid options that remain are Asynchronous or Scheduled batch.
· Asynchronous - Transfer source document subledger journal entries to the general ledger after the source document is journalized into the subledger journal. The transfer occurs whenever server resources are available to process them, which typically is immediately, but might be later.
· Scheduled Batch - Transfer source document subledger journal entries to the general ledger by using a scheduled batch. You can then summarize the entries in the Summarize accounting entries field.
First, let's address why the deprecation for the synchronous setting was implemented. Posting a document, or a set of documents can be a lengthy operation as it first records data in the subledger: customer invoice transactions, vendor invoice transactions, expense report transactions, etc... followed by recording the accounting data to the general ledger. It is this second activity of recording the voucher to the general ledger that provides an opportunity to break the long running process into two parts - recording data in the subledger, and then the general ledger. Breaking this into two distinct processes at a database transaction level eliminates some of the slow performing actions including database blocking and locks that force other users to wait.
Often there are questions and concerns on the impact of this setting change such as "how soon will my voucher appear in the general ledger?" and "What if my voucher entries never seem to transfer?" or "How does this impact my journal postings?"
Here are a few tips and answers to the questions with the change to using Asynchronous or Scheduled Batch.
You can view the accounting that is recorded in the subledger journal tables by clicking the 'view accounting' button of your posted document.
