Consolidation Journals - Create

This role allows a user to create, modify and delete consolidation journals and consolidation journal templates. When assigned to users that have the predefined roles of User, Power User and Service Administrator, the creation of journals and templates is available only for those dimension members that the user has write access to.

If the journal is in Working status (for Journal Workflow-enabled applications) or Unposted, the user can save and modify the journal as needed. Only users with the Create role and write access to the members in the journal can modify journals. The only action available for this role is Complete. However, if a user also has the Consolidation Journal - Submit role, they can perform the Submit action instead of the Complete action.

Only users with Create role and write access can take the following actions on a journal:

  • Copy
  • Delete. Note that journals can only be deleted if they are in a Working status.

Consolidation Journals - Submit

This role allows a user to submit a journal for approval. It also allows the user to reject a journal with a Completed status. When the journal is rejected, it returns to Working status.

This role is not available for applications that do not have Consolidation Journal Workflow enabled.

Consolidation Journals - Approve

This role allows a user to approve a journal that has been submitted for approval. The user must have either read or write access to all of the members in the journal. The user who submitted the journal cannot also be the approving user.

A user with this role can reject a Submitted journal. When the journal is rejected, it returns to Working status.

This role is not available for applications that do not have Consolidation Journal Workflow enabled.

Consolidation Journals - Post

This role allows a user to post a journal. If Consolidation Journal Workflow is enabled, the journal must be submitted and approved prior to posting the journal.

For applications that do not have Consolidation Journal Workflow enabled, the user who creates the journal can also post the journal.

Consolidation Journals - Un-Post

This role allows a user to unpost a journal, if they have write access to the members in the journal. The user does not need to be the user who posted the journal.

Consolidation Journals - Auto-Post After Approval

This role can be assigned and unassigned to Administrators, Power Users and Users. It allows a journal to be automatically posted after approval. When the approver has approved the journal, the journal will automatically be posted. The user who approved the journal will also be the posting user. Only users with write access to the members in the journal are allowed to automatically post a journal. If the user does not have write access to the members, an error displays and the journal cannot be automatically posted.

The Auto-Post After Approval role is only for Regular journals, not Auto-Reversing journals.

Consolidation Journals - Manage Periods

This role can be assigned and unassigned to any Administrator or Power User. When assigned, the user can access Manage Periods and Open and Close a period.
