General Ledger Account

A General Ledger Account, sometimes referred to as GLA for short, is a data item used for detailed tracking of task and expense codes. After a general ledger account has been created, task and expense codes can be associated to it. If an organization uses task and expense codes for their workers, at least one general ledger account must be created.

While their naming conventions are similar, General Ledger Accounts are not the same as General Ledgers. General Ledger Accounts are used to organize and classify task and expense codes, while General Ledgers are in place to organize Business Units.

Navigating the General Ledger Account Admin Object

Select General Ledger Account from the Financial Data section of the admin menu to view a list of general ledger accounts within WorkingNet’s tenant.

Create a General Ledger Account

WorkingNet needs to add a new general ledger account called Help Desk Analysts to track certain worker task and expense codes.

As the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, you will need to create the new general ledger account then associate the GLA to the 'Hours Worked' Task Code.
