After any General Ledger Checkpoint is created (manually or automatically), the General Ledger Notification dialog is automatically displayed the next time an authorized Employee Logs Into MKMS.



General Ledger Notifications dialog


The General Ledger Checkpoints dialog is used to create and/or review system created General Ledger Checkpoints that are recorded when an Accounting Period is Closed in the General Ledger System, and any General Ledger Checkpoints that were created manually.


At least one Employee must be authorized to view a General Ledger Notification

The authority to view General Ledger Notification is granted to a User by Checking the Notify General Ledger Changes? box in the Security tab of the Employee Form

b)May be classified as a Super User by Checking the Super User Authority? box.

c)Should be Notified of General Ledger Changes by Checking the Notify General Ledger Changes? box .

The General Ledger Account's Account Balance that existed when the General Ledger Checkpoint was created may be viewed within the General Ledger Checkpoints dialog by Clicking the View Detail Icon after selecting the appropriate Checkpoint record.
