While entering purchase and/or sales entries, outstanding items are created. These outstanding items can be paid or collected. In order to prevent an incorrect outstanding item being paid or collected, you can make sure the outstanding items receive the status ‘Blocked’ immediately after creating them. You will then be able to rate the items first and then unblock them.
Per journal, you can indicate whether an outstanding item should be blocked immediately. In the maintenance of a purchase or sales journal, via the menu [System, Finance, Journals], you can set this up by checking the option ‘Block outstanding item’.
The term screen, which you can open by clicking the button ‘Details’ on the creditor card for instance, you can unblock an outstanding item. Here, you can uncheck the option ‘Blocked’.
