How to prevent a Journal entry being edited?

I need  way to prevent Users editing Journal Entries in QB, that are posted in from external software.
I was to produce a reconciliation report to compare entries on both packages.  If users can edit journal entries, I may get discrepancies.

How to prevent a Journal entry being edited?

Restricting access to certain areas is now available in QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise, AvonDM.



If you want to modify an existing user, select Edit User. Then, you can view the summary of the restriction that was set up for the user profile, highlight the user, then select View User.


In addition, you can also hide account balances from unauthorized users. This keeps users from seeing the account balances, thus the user's access rights must be restricted. For more information on its users and restrictions, please read this article for more information: QuickBooks Desktop Users and Restrictions.


For more information and reference, you can check out these help articles.
