Overview
Posting records in the general ledger creates the debits and credits for that source object in the general ledger. Once a record is posted, any fields on the source object that are related to the general ledger transaction table can not be edited until it is unposted. Unposting a record completely removes the transactions associated with the record in the general ledger. Once an accounting period is closed, a record can not be posted or unposted in the closed period. Some records in Accounting Seed auto-post while others need to be posted manually. Below is a list of objects that can be posted, and the posting options associated with each:
