Manage Posting Periods – Cost Accounting in SAP S/4HANA Cloud
Welcome to this blog post on Manage Posting Periods – Cost Accounting in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
We saw some queries on this new app and the difference between the old and the new app so providing more details to clarify your doubts.
You can use this app Manage Posting Periods – Cost Accounting to
- Open and close fiscal periods for cost accounting transactions
Display the status of CO periods – open or close
Open or close CO periods by company code
Open or close CO periods for specific business transactions types by company code
Schedule background jobs to open and close posting periods
Now we see the earlier already existing app – Manage Posting Periods
This app allows you to open or close fiscal periods for both finance and controlling transactions and for normal as well as special periods.
To Open Periods, click on Set Posting periods at the bottom of the screen –
Select a posting period variant item that you want to change, and choose Set Posting Periods > Open Periods.
Change the fiscal year period to open a posting period and save.
Opening a posting period will automatically close the previous period.
In addition to normal periods, you can change adjustment periods for authorized users (by the authorization group field) and CO periods to meet your needs.
When you want to open and close fiscal periods for cost accounting transactions especially for individual business transaction types, you can select the CO Period Status tab in the footer bar which will then take you to the new Manage Posting Periods – Cost Accounting app we discussed above.
Hope the difference between the two Fiori apps is clear.
