Accounting Journal cancelations and fiscal close deadlines

November 2, 2022

At 5:00 p.m. on fiscal period close days, all accounting journals that have a status of “in-progress” are canceled. This occurs because the period cannot close while any journals are “in progress.” The cancelation process is submitted by Financial Systems and Solutions staff members. If a journal has a canceled status with any of the following names, please note that the journal was not fully approved in time for the period close deadline:

  • Vipin Jain 
  • Mary-Frances McNulty
  • Sherie McGregor
  • Cynthia Rosa 
  • Andrew Sgambato 

If the journal entry is still necessary, use the Copy related action to copy the journal into the open fiscal period. See these instructions to copy the journal.
