Journal Workflow Process

Journal Workflow Process:

  1. A journal is entered that charges an area other than that of the person entering the journal.
  2. Journal Notification is sent to the appropriate departmental approver’s worklist as well as an automated email message.
  3. The departmental approver must mark the item worked in their worklist if they agree to the charge.  If they do not agree to the charge or feel they are not the appropriate approver of the transaction, they should immediately contact the journal originator.
  4. When all transactions on a journal have been marked worked, the journal will be posted to the ledger.  The journal will not be posted until all system approvals have been provided.   Journal entry initiators should monitor their entries regularly to ensure the necessary approvals are provided timely and the entry is posted.
