Fiscal Periods Setup

Has anyone out there found a solution for the fact that the only way to close accounting periods is through the General Ledger Setup window?

It would be nice to close monthly fiscal periods on a modular basis, such as for A/P month end.

    You have a few ways to keep User from Posting into closed periods:

    1. General Ledger Setup (Global Allow From and To Dates)

    2. User Setup (Allow From and To) set per user to allow specific Users, like Accounting team, to post to the closing period and future period

    The above locks users in all areas from posting to closed periods when posting Purchase, Sales or any related document or transaction.

    Hope this helps.

    General Ledger Allow Posting From and To dates AND User Setup Allow Posting From and To dates are what we have. I have seen a request in for something like you are requesting. Check it out....
