Project description

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/account-financial-tools Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runboat

Lock each accounting journal independently.

In addition to the lock dates provided by standard Odoo, this module provides a ‘Lock Date’ and a ‘Lock Date for Non-Advisers’ per journal.

This module also adds a wizard that allows you to update the ‘Lock Date’ and the ‘Lock Date for Non-Advisers’ for several Journals at the same time.

Table of contents


To configure this module, you need to:

  1. Go to Invoicing > Configuration > Journals

  2. Open a Journal and set the ‘Lock Date’ and the ‘Lock Date for Non-Advisers’ in the’ Advanced Settings’ tab of the form view or select several Journals in the list view and click on the action menu ‘Update journals lock dates’ to update those dates for the selected journals at the same time.


If the logged-in user has the access group ‘Adviser’, he/she will not be able to create a journal entry if the ‘Lock Date’ of the journal is greater than or equal to the journal entry.

If the logged-in user has not the access group ‘Adviser’, he/she will not be able to create a journal entry if the ‘Lock Date for Non-Advisers’ of the journal is greater than or equal to the journal entry.
