Manage Users action added to the Create Company wizard

To avoid situations where an administrator forgets to add users, the Manage Users action is added to the Create Company assisted setup.

Accounting periods are optional

Due to multiple reasons listed below we decided to make accounting periods optional, so now user can run the company without setting up accounting periods. The functionality is still there and if users need it, they can create accounting periods. Several features require accounting periods, such as Year Closing and Date Compression.

Reasons for design change:

  • Posting in a new year often starts with an error about missing accounting period, which causes headache for Support.
  • Accounting periods are not needed until the end of a fiscal year. In some countries they are not needed at all.
  • Accounting periods are needed mainly by accountants, so we didn’t want other users to worry about it.
