Sage 200cloud Help Series: User rights to change Accounting Period Status

This week, we will be looking at user rights to change accounting period status on Sage 200cloud (formerly Sage 200). Please see below the steps to follow. 


A User has been given access to Accounting System Manager to “Maintain Accounting Periods”, however when the user opens this – the “Change Period Status” button is 'greyed' out.



When this button is greyed out, there is still another step to do.

Click on Accounting periods and then “Maintain Accounting Period User Permissions”.


When you do this, the following dialogue box opens:



Select the relevant user and click edit.

Then, select the relevant permissions you wish to allow and click OK.



The status box will now be available where you can change the period status.
