Find & Recode - Find transactions in locked period

Started by Matthew Hazlewood in Feature Requests | Idea

It would be useful to be able to use the find and recode function as a find transactions only. It is painful having to unlock a period to locate a transaction. Maybe it could return transactions in locked periods but just not allow editing of them.
Cheers, Matthew. Right now, Find & Recode is designed to only show you transactions that can be edited. This isn't something that the team are looking to change in the near future, but we'll keep an eye on demand. Do pop back in and add your vote.

Totally agree with Matthew that being able to Find things prior to a locked period would be great perhaps an option to find only and not recode could be introduced.

I agree with Matthew. In light of the update in Find and Recode where you can recode transactions with a journal entry, having the ability to see past transactions would be useful. Often we do not use journal entries to correct transactions unless they come from a closed period. An added suggestion might be that to access past transactions in the Find & Recode screen, a user needs to enter their password to view them or only allow the option to recode with a MJ if from a locked period.
