How to access it?
It is accessible via the Main menu of the Money module via the Accountant drop down list-> Manual Journals.
Via the Accountant drop down list-> Manual Journals, choose Add Journal.
Or from the Journals grid (View Journals) via the Actions button-> Add Journal.
The Journal allows the user to transfer money from one or more accounts to other one or more accounts such that the debited amount equals to the credited amount.
The Journal form has many important fields such as:
- Ref #
- Account Description
- Type of transfer whether Credit or Debit
- Amounts: First field is the amount inserted by the user and the second Amount is in the Currency of the Entity in case currencies were different.
- Add another line: allows the user to transfer money from one or more accounts to other one or more accounts such that the debited amount equals to the credited amount.
So the user can bill the Money module from the Journal grid to begin the real transactions, after defining the Amounts of Owners for the Company, Banks, Petty cash, and more.
Via the action wheel next to the Journal, the user can Print a Journal, View/Edit a Journal or Delete a Journal.
Search for a Journal
In Advanced Search, the user can run the search based on a specific entity relevant to the Journal form, i.e. Journal ID, Account Name, Amount and more. There is a possibility also to modify the operator of search for each field (i.e. equal, begins with, contains, >, <, and more). The Advanced Search menu is hidden by default; the user needs to click on the link Advanced Search to unhide it.
