Weekly Dynamic: Improve Balancing with Allow Account Entry

One way to improve balancing subledger accounts to the GL is to prevent users from entering journal entries to a controlled account. There shouldn't be any recurring reason for a user to make a GL entry to AP or AR. By preventing entries from accidentally hitting one of these accounts companies can improve balancing.

Setting this up is extremely easy.

  • Simply select an account using Cards->Financial->Account.
  • Select the control account like AP or AR.
  • Uncheck the Allow Account Entry Box
  • Hit Save
After that transactions have to originate in a subledger to post to that account.
