What are Calendar Features?

To Create a calendar to define an accounting year and the periods that it contains.

  • Specify common calendar options that the application uses to automatically generate a calendar with its periods.
  • Define your calendar with at least one year before the period in which you start entering transactions.
  • Make choices carefully when specifying the options, because it is difficult to change your accounting calendar after a period status is set to open or future enterable.
  • Optionally, define multiple calendars and assign a different calendar to each ledger.
What is Period Frequency?
  • Use period frequency to set the interval for each subsequent period to occur, for example, monthly, quarterly, yearly, 4-4-5, 5-4-4, or 4-5-4.
  • Adjusting Period Frequency
  • Use the adjusting period frequency to control when the application creates adjusting periods.
  • The default is None which adds no adjusting periods.
What are Accounting Calendar Considerations?

How can set Start Date:

  • Specify a calendar start date that is a full year before the start date of the year of the first translation period for your ledger.
  • Remember translation cannot be run in the first period of a calendar. Translation requires that the first period that is ever translated for the ledger must be at least the second defined period in the ledger’s calendar because it derives an opening balance based on the prior period’s ending balance.
  • Consider how many years of history to load from your previous system.
