- Imagine a scenario where a deposit for multiple payments have been created with direct journal marked, and then accounting entries have been created, accounting entries have been marked complete and has been run and posted. Later you have identified that you have entered an incorrect amount or GL distribution and there is no option to modify the accounting entries. You could leverage the un-post functionality to create the un-post activity, and create a new deposit with correct information with direct journal marked and create the journal payment.
- From a system process, ensure that you follow the steps contained in this QRG to un-post the direct payment.
