Setup Accounting Seed
After the GoldFinch and Accounting Seed integration package is installed, navigate to the Company Setup page to check the Bypass Offset field.
GoldFinch and Accounting Seed integration is not enabled out of the box by default. Follow the screenshots below to enable the integration.
If you forgot to turn on Accounting Seed when you go live, and there are posted transactions in GoldFinch, you must follow these steps to sync GoldFinch transactions to Accounting Seed:
Turn on Accounting Seed integration.
Unpost Sales Invoices, then repost them
Unpost Purchase Invoices, then repost them.
Navigate to GL Entries, Pending Sync view.
Select all GL Entries.
Click Sync to Journal Entry.
Navigate to Journal Entries in Accounting Seed and post them.
Master Data Sync
When GoldFinch is integrated with Accounting Seed, there are a few tables that are linked to provide a mapping between the two apps. When records are inserted, deleted, or modified in the following objects in Accounting Seed, the corresponding records will be updated in the GoldFinch objects.
The 3 objects listed above are included in both the Accounting Seed app and the GoldFinch app. To minimize confusion, "GF" should be added to the name of the GoldFinch tabs to easily differentiate.
This is a one-way path. If records are inserted, deleted, or modified in these 4 GoldFinch objects, the Accounting Seed records will not be updated.
You should delete records in these 3 GoldFinch objects before you update Accounting Seed to avoid duplicates.
By default, updates of GL Accounts in Accounting Seed are not copied to GoldFinch. You can manually update a few GL Accounts (less than 10) you need for inventory management in GoldFinch. Ensure the GL Account Names in GoldFinch match with those in Accounting Seed.
To integrate GL Accounts too, you can check GLA Integration in the Custom Setting. Updates of GL Accounts in Accounting Seed will be copied to GoldFinch automatically and you will not be allowed to update GL Accounts directly in GoldFinch.
The Salesforce Account object is used for both Customers and Vendors and is shared by both GoldFinch and Accounting Seed.

Scheduling the Daily Posting Job
You must schedule a job (AcctSeedGFSync) to post Billings, Payables, and Journal Entries that are created by GoldFinch automatically but cannot be posted due to permission issues.
This job must be scheduled with a user that has an Accounting Seed license assigned!

Users are not allowed to change the Billing Date of Billings in Accounting Seed that was created by the GoldFinch integration routine.
Users are not allowed to change the Issue Date of Payables in Accounting Seed that was created by the GoldFinch integration routine.

To resync the AR for selected accounts, select the accounts, then click Resync AS AR Balance button in the Account list.
All open billings will be inserted into the Account Open Transactions table.
The ability to apply credit memos to invoices has been added to the Cash Receipt function. You will have the option to select either the Apply Credit Memos or Apply Cash Receipt to Invoice buttons on the Cash Receipt page.
It is possible to enforce Date checking in Accounting Seed by selecting the Check AS Transaction Date checkbox in the GoldFinch Company Setup.
If this field is checked, the Billing Date, Issue Date, and Journal Dates must be within the Accounting Period defined for the corresponding transactions, and must also be within the Allowed Posting From and Allowed Posting To window defined in the GoldFinch Company Setup.
GoldFinch offers import templates and conversion programs to minimize the number of steps to import the beginning balances of the AR, AP, and GL. Contact a GoldFinch consultant for details.
If GL Ledger is blank in GoldFinch, the Default Ledger defined on the Accounting Setup of Accounting Seed is used when Billings, Payables, and Journal Entries are created from the integration. You will need to contact Accounting Seed to change the Default Ledger once transactions are posted against it.
