The Book lock date helps you to enforce a closed period. The Book lock date prevents modification prior to its date on a book. You would typically set a Book lock date the filing date of your tax return so no changes can be made prior to the corresponding files.


This give a book owner more control, specially when you are working with your team on the same book.

Note:
- Editors can only set more recent Book lock dates (increment the lock date).

- Only book owners can set older & more recent Book lock dates (decrease the lock date).

Set a Book lock date:

  1. Open your book
  2. On the right side of the dashboard ⚙️
  3. Settings
  4. Set the "Lock date"
  5. Press Save.

As soon as a Book lock date is set, modifications prior to that date are disabled, meaning that you can't change anything on this book before this date. A book owner is in the position to modify the Book lock date, enabling eventually necessary modifications.
