Accepted Practices Mode (AP Mode) is a restricted mode that can be set in your database to ensure that changes that would negatively impact your account reconciliation cannot be performed.
An indicator that AP Mode is enabled will be displayed under your account information
The following functions are impacted when restricted mode is enabled:
When AP Mode is enabled, run Upcoming Billing can NOT be enabled until there is at least one period has been closed. This is especially important at the time of conversion to not mix converted transaction with new transactions. See Closing Accounting Periods for further information.
In AP Mode no part of a fee item can be changed once it has been created. When changes to fee items occur your books can be thrown off. If changes are needed, a new Fee Item must be created. To make it easy to create a new fee item you can create a copy of an existing fee item.
