Re: Could someone explain the principle behind 'saved' and 'posted'

Hi Kevin,

The saved/posted states exist to be able to implement a "4 eyes principle": the idea that colleagues should check each other before transactions are entered into the books. One colleague enters the transaction into the system and saves; the other verifies and posts.
ANd if it is an intermediary step then why are 'saved' credit notes
showing up under the AR aging report - if they are not yet posted then
surely they are not officially on the accounts and therefore should not
show under AR aging.

That does sound like a bug indeed.
