SYMENU System Manager Introduction 45

System Period Control

 

Application Overview

 

This feature controls the date you enter for the A/R, AP, PR, IM, COP, PO, and GL modules.  It can prevent you from entering a date before or after the current period for each module. Keep in mind in order to access this function, user needs to access Global Setup. Global Setup is usually restricted to “Admin” or Elliott “Czar” (CFO, Controller…etc.) You should have an internal discussion on who should be in charge of changing the system period. Normally, this should be centralized controlled by CFO or Controller. Letting each user changing their own financial period is not advisable.

Step 2.             General Window
