Audit Options

The audit options determine when new records of changes are added to the HQ Master Audit (HQMA) database table. For example, if you change a setting on the company parameters form, the system creates a new record of the change in the HQMA table.

You can view records in the HQMA table using the HQ Audit Detail report in the HQ module. See About Viewing the Master Audit Log for more information about viewing audit records in the HQMA table.

The following is a detailed list of the audit options.

  • Company Parameters—Company Parameters will always be checked. Any changes to the Company Parameters form will be tracked in the Master Audit table.

  • Accounts—Check this box to record changes made using GL Accounts.

  • Auto Journal Entries—Check this box to record changes made using GL Auto Journal Entries.

  • Account Balances—Check this box to record changes to Prior Years GL Account Balances and any year’s Beginning Balance using GL Prior Years Activity and GL Beginning Balances.

  • Monthly Budgets—Check this box to record changes to Monthly Budgets using GL Budgets.
