The Department record is a powerful tool in Escape Online setup. The control the Department record wields over Finance records cannot be underestimated. As we continue in our Account Limit Series, we will focus on the Stores Requisition section.
Again, we are looking specifically at Account Fund/Object fields, but it only takes a second to point out the extraordinary control you can exercise over stores requisitions. For example, there are three fields dedicated to issue price, two for surcharges and several for year end processing!
Back to the topic at hand. In this LIVE screen capture, we can guess that this is the Food Services department, by the limitation to fund 13. Notice that the head of the department also limits the requisitions to accounts with an object code beginning with a 4.
Of course, this works in conjunction with the user's account permissions, limiting their account lookup to only those accounts that match both!
