As the fiscal year comes to a close, Journal Initiators and Approvers must check their worklists for journals that need to post to the current Fiscal Year (2018); this is especially critical for entries between Business Units.
As the year-end approaches it is the time to review all journals that are in workflow or have yet to be posted. If you want a journal posted to Fiscal Year 2018, please take a proactive approach and verify the status of all journals you have initiated or approved. Research has shown that a number of journals remain in a "non-posted" status. Please contact Rob Hupp if you have questions.
