My idea for improving Cougar Mountain is...

AP “Invoice Date” field should NOT be blocked by “Date Block Period” in Denali Fiscal Calendar

AP “Invoice Date” field should NOT be blocked “Date Block Period” by Denali Fiscal Calendar. This field is used completely differently than “GL Date” and often times DOES need back-dated, because invoices arrive into the new month and need entered then and back-dated for DUE date to be correct. (Or give setup option to allow or not)

    The development team has reviewed this. At this time, we will not be changing the date block period. The date block period is designed as a security feature for customers who want to block any activity during reconciled/closed periods. For the best ways to post these invoices, please contact our customer support at 1-800-390-7053.

        Just to clarify, maybe there is a misunderstanding...the Security would still be there because it SHOULD block the "GL Date" field (from Accounts Payable under "Enter Bills" screen) since it is Posted using that date. However, by blocking the "Invoice Date" field, we can't use actual invoice date so using the AP vendor terms (ie Net 30) and ability to select bills to pay by due date (Prepare Payments Automatically) gets messed up and doesn't show anything accurately. I may be recalling wrong, but I think the old "Pro" version worked differently (as requested).

        How does the "Invoice Date" affect a reconciled/closed period? The "GL Date" determines the period in which the activity is posted, correct?

        This idea is over 3 years old without a single comment from software development, has this been given any consideration?

        A setup option is a must.

        I concur. The ability to track invoices is greatly diminished without the ability to accurately denote the actual invoice date. If I receive a January invoice in March I have to date it March or reopen January which would be bad. If an invoice comes in from a prior year that has been closed you have not options.
