Journal Name: Enter a descriptive name for the journal (e.g., Sales Journal, Bank Journal).

Journal Code: Optionally, assign a code to the journal for easy identification.

Next Entry Number: Set the initial number for the next entry in the sequence.


7) Advanced Settings (Optional):

Depending on your requirements, you might find additional settings such as:

Allow Automatic Reconciliation: Enable this if you want the entries in this journal to be automatically reconciled with bank statements.

Automatic Post Entries: Select whether entries should be automatically posted or left in draft state until manual validation.

Consolidation Journal: If applicable, associate a consolidation journal for multi-company setups.


8) Save and Apply Changes:

Once you've configured the journal settings, click the 'Save' button to create the new journal.


9) Further Customization (Optional):

You can further customize the journal settings and accounts as needed.
