Accounting Periods in Workbooks are important - without them you will not be able to generate Forecasts or Quotas and you won't be able to generate Reports based on specific Accounting Periods, so make sure you set yours up before starting to use Workbooks.
Accounting Periods are usually a month in length with twelve periods making a full financial year. For Organisations that do not have this accounting structure, alternative time period lengths can be set up.
Setting up your Accounting Periods
Workbooks will populate all the fields for you except Period style BUT check that the Year Name and Start and End Dates are correct and in line with your Financial Year.
Use the dropdown picklist next to Period style to select the sub-periods you want to apply. (The most commonly used option is Calendar Months.)
When you're happy that the data is correct, click Create.
If you want to delete an Accounting Period, click Edit and delete the appropriate periods.
NOTE: You cannot delete an Accounting Period once it has been referenced within a Transaction Document so take care to set them up correctly. If you need to amend them after Transaction Documents have been created, you might need to have them changed by our engineers, which would be a chargeable service.
