Account Journal Lock Date

Lock each accounting journal independently.

In addition to the lock dates provided by standard Odoo and account_permanent_lock_move, provide a per journal lock date.

Note: this module depends on account_permanent_lock_move because it implements stricter checks than standard Odoo, such as verifying that one cannot create draft moves before the lock date.

Note: the journal lock date is ignored for users that are part of the Adviser group. This rule can be adapted by overriding method _can_bypass_journal_lock_date of account.journal.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • a wizard to set the lock date on several journals could be nice to have
  • the module does not check that all moves prior the lock date are posted, this could be made as part of the wizard
