The GL is the official repository for all of KFS's financial and budget information. It stores account balance and budget information for multiple fiscal years and stores a detailed record of all financial transactions.
Users do not directly interact with the GL. Instead, users who need to modify financial information in the GL do so by creating e-docs that, when fully approved, are posted to the GL.
The Kuali GL module is a daily batch processing application that expects all GL pending transactions to be collected in 'batch' from the GL entry files. The daily batch includes transactions generated in Kuali modules as well as transactions created in external applications and converted to the Kuali GL entry format.
