As we approach another month end, this is a reminder for all journal approvers to check their worklist for journals needing approval and for journal initiators to check the status of their journals in the Find an Existing Value tab.
For those of you approving automatic reversing journals please remember to post the reversing journal, too. Sometimes this process is forgotten. A reversing journal cannot be changed, posted, or deleted once the period of the Journal Date is closed. For those of you initiating a reversing journal, please remind your approvers that reversing journals of the same ID# are created once the original journal is posted. The status of that reversal journal will be valid; however, manual intervention is required to get it posted.
In addition, if you are creating December journals within the first five working days of January, remember to change the journal date to December 2018; otherwise, the journal date will default to January 2019. Many times, the month and day are changed but the user forgets to change the year, thus, becoming a December 2019 journal. If it’s not changed, the journal ends up in FY20.
If you have any questions please contact Rob Hupp, Division of Accounting, at email@example.com or 8-4519.
