The ERP implementation team always working to find out the control points, they spend time to identify the required controls, and check points in the ERP. The internal auditor and controller keen about these controls, where it could be embed in setups, default values, mandatory values, specific selections, and approval cycles.
These controls are attached to document transactions,I will share with you the Approval controls on General Ledger journals. The approval controls are one of the MS Dynamics AX 2012 collaboration offerings which I have shared recently, and these are dividing into two levels, the first level is one step approval, and second level is approval workflow.
In this post I will explore One Step Approval, which considered the simple configuration for journals approvals, assigning a user group to be the approval group for specific journal name.
Under journal names setup, activate approval journal, and select user group
When an accountant creates a ledger journal, he/she only can validate it, and the post function is disabled if the accountant is not belongs to the approval user group
