Controllers no longer have the functionality to disable individual periods.
What does this mean:
Throughout the remainder of the year, the controller or anyone with the role of Financial Supervisor can accidentally create an entry into a closed period. The problem will not become visible until YearEnd close.
Currently in 19R1 companies will close periods.
The Controller with Financial Supervisor role may make entries that will flow into the closed period. At some point, the Controller wants to restrict himself from making an entry into a closed period. In the past, she/he would disable the period.
Problem: Now when you go to disable a period, the system selects all periods in that fiscal year.
Even if all the periods are not close.
All these controllers with the financial supervisor role are on pins and needles hoping at the end of the year, that they haven't screwed up and posted something into a closed period.
Solution We can help them, it is very simple.
Push out a hotfix that allows disabling of individual periods.
It can follow the same business logic that all periods before have to close.
This change should be put into 19 R1 , 19R2 and 20R1
