Imported Bank Data - Protected


#1

I was having a conversation with an Accounting Practice regarding Manager and one thing that seemed very important to them was that when bank data is imported into a Manager account there must be no way for a user to edit, deleted or modify the imported numbers accept facilitate the dissection or allocation of the imported bank data which we normally do in Manager. At the moment we can delete imported bank data by using the edit button which is not a desired feature by some Accounting Practices.

Is there a way to harden this process of imported bank data to allow users only dissect and allocate functionality?

The thinking for this requirement is that some Accounting Practices what to eliminate the ability of clients, users or company administrators from modifying imported bank account data. The wish is that users can only dissect or allocate imported transactions / funds. This apparently helps to remove human error and makes their job easier because what occurs in the bank account is then reflected exactly or is 100 % traceable in the Manager accounts (Which it is if no one say changes or deletes a transaction).
I checked on some other applications and this feature is in place.

Note that this does not affect the usual Receive, Spend and Transfer money functions, only the Import Bank Statements.

Would anyone share this thinking?

What other accounting system stops you from modifying imported bank statements?

To eliminate human error, there is a bank reconciliation process.

Also, there is an ability to set lock date which will prevent editing all transactions before certain date, not just imported bank statements.

The application used extensively with this feature is Banklink. I agree that all the processes, reconciliation and checks are in place and was surprised that this appeared to be so important to the accounting practice. As a result I wanted to determine if this was something other professionals thought necessary. Thankfully not. I like the flexibility of Manager. Thank you for the response.
