    It should not be that hard to add your Debtors Control Account and your Creditors Control Accounts to the same type of settings as the retained earnings account?

    I can't believe this functionality wasn't implemented from the very first version.  I have a client who constantly makes journal entries to the Cash Account without using the Cash Module.  Makes the concept of a Control Account totally useless.

    Is there any update or plan to roll this out??

    I can't believe this functionality wasn't implemented from the very first version.  We posted transactions via the GL to the AR control account and to the AP control accounts.  Makes the concept of a Control Account totally useless.

    Glad to see additional support for this functionality with 40 votes so far.

    What if a column was added in the Chart of Accounts screen so you can decide which GL Accounts can't be chosen in the Account lookup. It would be more manual for a user to setup, but it might be easier for Acumatica to implement and would allow you to handle ISV solutions that also have system accounts.

    Reply to Tim Rodman:  I expect the SYSTEM to allow posting to Control Accounts FROM system interfaces like A/P.  The A/P Bill would post to the AP account but a MANUAL JE would not allow the AP account to be used.  Similar in CM - A Bank entry would be allowed to post coming from AR, AP, CM as PART of a normal transaction that would use that account.

     

    But if you PREVENT a user from having access to a control account, I believe Acumatica Security would halt the posting of 'normal' CM/AP/AR transaction that use the control account as the correct offset to the purpose of the entry.

    This feature has been marked 'Planned' for a fair amount of time.  As of 2018 R1 18.103.022 the feature is not evident when looking at the COA form.  Please advise when planned will be implemented.  This is a badly needed feature.  Thank you, Mike Lupro

    Again, a comment from Acumatica as to what version this Planned feature will be available would be nice.  Waiting now for Planned for almost a year and several updates since then w/o seeing this feature.

    As of now we are targeting 2019, but we cannot guarantee that timeline.

    Please see Time Rodman's comment below - What if a column was added in the Chart of Accounts screen so you can decide which GL Accounts can't be chosen in the Account Lookup. It would be more manual for a user to set up, but it might be easier for Acumatica to implement and would allow you to handle ISV solutions that also have system accounts.  This can not be so hard to set up?  Clients in South Africa have a lot of frustrations because this is not available,  its expected from a financial system as a rule.

    Once this feature is implemented, combined with the new Discrepancy by Account screens in Acumatica 2019 R1, it will get A LOT easier to reconcile modules to the General Ledger:

    An absolute necessity to maintain balance between Sub Ledgers and GL balances.
