Controlling Journal Line Descriptions for Subledger Entries Posting to the GL
Since we have been live in the last year one of the biggest complaints users have is that subledger entries posting to the general ledger have extremely unhelpful journal line descriptions.
Subledger entries such as payroll or receipt accounting entries post to the general ledger with terrible journal line descriptions:
- For payroll entries the description is only our payroll group name - which is at least something but what would be much more preferable is the payroll element name or something similar).
- For receipt accounting, the description is "Journal Import Created" - which something that included the PO number and/or vendor name would have been ideal.
