The five main closing tasks

Modified on Fri, 18 Nov 2022 at 11:33 AM

You will typically work on five main closing tasks within Aico.  

  • Manual - this is simply a task for a User to perform which does not necessarily have any action required in the ERP.
  • Manual with proposed journal - this is a task which requires the User to create and post a month end journal and contains information relating to that journal such as the proposed posting date, name, document type or even which accounts to post to.
  • ERP report - this is a task for a User to perform which is supported by a report automatically created from the ERP and attached the to the task. 
  • ERP report with proposed journal - this is a task where the ERP report is run and then a journal is proposed from the data in the report e.g. move the closing balance of this account from A to B.  
  • ERP report with automatic journal - this is the same as above except, rather than propose a journal, it will will create and post the journal automatically.

The header fields on the left-hand side of each document usually contain similar key information about the task, such as the Company Code, due date and the description.


The left-hand panel contains key information about the task.


The document also contains details of the assigned preparers and approvers and when they are due to complete their actions in the closing workflow. 

Depending on your system configuration, you may also be able to add short instructions, attach a file containing instructions (in Word, PDF, and Excel format), or a link to a URL address where the instructions can be found.
