Flex On-Demand Learner Profiles
Flex On-Demand is a self-study training solution that was designed for two types of learners. First, Flex On-Demand is a great fit for experienced IT professionals who don't need a traditional multiple full days of training to upgrade their existing skills. They can pick and choose topics to make the most effective use of their time. Second, Flex On-Demand is perfect for highly-motivated individuals who are new to a technology and need to space their learning over a period of weeks or months. These learners can take their time and repeat sections as needed until they master the new concepts.

About Flex On-Demand
Our Flex On-Demand classes are self-study courses with 30 to 40 hours of content. They include hours of videos, hands-on labs using the actual software, and knowledge checks and were created by Microsoft to mirror the content found in the traditional live instructor-led version of this course. Those features are all part of the standard Flex On-Demand training.

Paying with Software Assurance Training Vouchers (SATV)
For Microsoft Enterprise customers paying with Software Assurance Vouchers, the cost of this class is 5 vouchers--this includes access to the self-study materials and the student workbook. (Note: Individuals paying with SATV can have the option of auditing the entire class.)

Module 3: Create fiscal calendars, years and periods
Before posting transactions, a new fiscal year must be divided into periods. This is because transactions cannot post unless a period is created for the posting date and shared across multiple legal entities. A benefit of sharing fiscal calendars is that this supports multiple fiscal calendars for each legal entity. The fiscal year in Finance and Operations can be set to any length and divided into any number of periods. This module explains fiscal and ledger calendar management in Finance and Operations.

To use a journal, you must have a journal name, and should complete the configuration of the ledger, journal, and posting of the General ledger module. By using the General ledger journal directly or via the General ledger processing workspace, you can perform daily activities as someone who is assigned proper security role to access the General ledger. A journal name gives financial leaders the capability to control data entry validation and restrict posting of a journal name for users differently.

Module 10: Intercompany Accounting
Intercompany accounting can help organizations by providing a single-entry point for transactions that must be recorded to multiple companies. Making transactions from a single company saves data entry time and helps provide a guarantee that transactions affecting multiple companies are recorded in each company.
