SAP Business ByDesign -Posting Control for Manual Journal Entries

Posting Control for Manual Journal Entries

There is an audit requirement that the journal entries must be reviewed by at least one person before it is posted. Our solution enables multiple users to work on the journal entries and allows only the last person the ability to post it. The entire change history is available via a report.

This is an enhancement to the standard functionality in which one user can create the entry and a separate individual posts the entry. However, in the standard functionality, the individual that posts the entry can also edit the entry. In a strict dual control enhanced functionality, the individual that creates can also edit but there is a block on posting for that specific individual, and auditing as a function is enabled. There is also the ability to enable notifications for Journal Entry Vouchers Dual Control so that the individual posting the entry is given an immediate alert for required action.
