Current Financial Settings


The Current Financial Settings allows you to change the current Company, Fiscal Year, Period, Bank Account, and Credit Card for your user within the program.

The current settings are used when performing most functions. Click the change link at the top right within any application to display the Current Financial Settings window. Make your selections using the drop-down lists and click the OK button to change the current settings or the Cancel link to return to the previous page.

 

Selecting a closed Fiscal Year as your current setting prohibits you from posting any transactions or entries until the setting is changed. 

 

Settings are stored on a per-user basis so each user can have their own current settings. You can change these settings at any time within any application.
