Beta: Locked Accounting Periods

Have more questions? Submit a request

Develop a strong compliance strategy by locking transactions once an accounting period ends.  The smart locking mechanism disables changes such as adding a transaction, reversing a transaction, or reprocessing reservations once the accounting period is over. The locked accounting period can be monthly or yearly depending on your preferences. Follow the steps below to change the locking period. 


Only team members with permission to lock accounting periods can reprocess reservations and reverse or add transactions after an accounting period has been locked.
