Accounting Preference access for Tablet

We are in the process of implementing advanced manufacturing and WMS into our existing NS environment. Yesterday during UAT I was told I would have to give everyone with Tablet edit access to Accounting Preferences. I am not comfortable with this and I could not get an adequate explanation of why or if there is a work around. Has anyone else experienced this? Implications? Work Arounds? I just think this is not a best practice.

I’d agree that this is not the best practice. Accounting preferences dictate the flow of the accounting management user interface in your account. Thus, it may disrupt day-to-day function if mismanaged.

However, I’ll have to ask what stage of UAT are you in. If they’d guarantee that they’ll only use it in Sandbox, then that should be fine. I would push back should they insist it in Production.

We are in Sandbox, but they will have to implement it to Prod if they cannot find a work around. They think they may have found one, but I am waiting for testing. I am not sure why this is even a thing. 🙁

You should ask for the specifics. Ask them what preference are they toggling with and why then post it in the Slack #accounting channel so that the group can share their inputs.
