JE Posting-Creator and Approver Must be Different Users

Posted on by 25

We want to set up some logic in Business Central so that the user who uploads a general journal entry is not allowed to approve/post this journal entry.  Yes, we have users set up with rights but a few of our users can both upload and approve entries.  In the instance where the user is set up with approver/posting rights and uploading JE rights, how would we set up logic so that BC sends an error not allowing the approver to be the same person as the creator of the JE?  This is an audit issue as well as just a SOX issue.

    What does your approval user setup look like? If every user has an approver, then that approver must approve. The standard setup should work for you, just make sure that each user has an approver.
