Locked Period Record Changes Reporting (Prior Period Lock)

Follow

The use of both the Prior Period Lock and Reversals will add symbols to some financial reports to help users understand when only financial changes were made.

Such symbols will appear on the following reports:

  1. Accounting: Invoices and Receipts over a Period

  2. Total Receipts with Providers

  3. Total Receipts

  4. Unallocated Deposits Report

  5. Discount Categories Report

  6. GST Report

  7. Total Banked in a Period (Bank Slips Tab)

A reversal and/or backdated transaction processed in an open period will not show any symbols.
A reversal and/or backdated transaction processed in a locked period will appear on the report with the following symbols: +P, +A, -P, -A.
