Module access level – specify which users can post to a period in AX 2012

In AX 2012, it is possibly to specify which user groups are allowed to post accounting transactions to a certain period for a given module by using the Ledger calendar form. The form is found in General Ledger>>Set up>>Ledger>>Ledger Calendar>>Module access level (please see screen shot below). Here, you can specify if All, None or specific user groups should be able to post to this period via the specified module. If there is a need to specify access for a group of users, the user group must be set up first. This is managed in System administration > Common > Users > User groups.

Below is a summary of the postings controlled by each module’s parameter in the above form:
