I’ve just noticed a very minor bug with the lock date feature in that it remains possible to enter a new transaction with a date earlier than that given for locking.
I made a typing error with a sales invoice date, accidentally setting it to a date in the last financial period which I had locked. The system accepted the new invoice but of course, when I went to edit the date, the lock prevented me from doing so.
It was easily resolved by temporarily changing the lock date, editing the invoice in question and then re-instating the lock date but to avoid this situation, I believe the system should prevent the creation of new records where their dates are earlier than the lock.
As I say, it’s very minor and something that I’ve only come across once by accident.
