We're using flexible workflow for Supplier Invoices and wondering how others are handling invoices with posting dates in prior periods that are approved after that period is closed. This is a very common occurrence for us (particularly with invoices entered in the last few days of a month), and the system behavior we'd like to occur is that the posting date is adjusted automatically to the current period when approved and posted (basically Posting Date = Approval Date).
Is there a setting to make that change happen in the workflow? I do see there is a mass change of posting date app that can be run (also a background job), is that the only option?
Opening a closed period and restating financials cannot be the desired behavior for most companies and a similar requirement would exist in other areas like in the approval of general journal entries via workflow so I'm curious how SAP intends to their customers to address this in S/4HANA Cloud.
Thanks for your help,
