Specify Posting Periods

Use posting periods to specify when users can post to the general ledger.

To specify posting periods

  1. Choose the Lightbulb that opens the Tell Me feature. icon, enter General Ledger Setup, and then choose the related link.
  2. On the General Ledger Setup page, define the period by entering dates in the Allow Posting From and Allow Posting To fields.


These posting periods apply to the company and to all users. To allow for exceptions, you can define different posting periods for specific users on the User Setup page. These posting periods overrule those specified on the General Ledger Setup page. For more information, see To set up user time constraints.
