Amortize Revenue but Changing the GL variable 1
We would like to amortize revenue but have GL Variable 1 be changed between the two transactions that hit the GL.
I already tried using a record trigger flow on the Transaction object that would update GL variable on the second transaction before save. However, it still through an error expecting the value to be var1.
The only way to do this is via a journal entry. Are you sure you want to? 2 things to consider that may or may not be relevant to your business/process:
1) If you do it this way, it will make it impossible to reconcile your deferred revenue at the GLAV 1 level. The balance for the GL Account across all GLAV1 will net to zero but there will always be a balance for Var 1 and Var 2.
2) Along the same lines: If you run financial reports or trial balances at the GLAV level, it will make them not balance. The trial balance for Var 1 would net to $100 and Var 2 would net to -$100.
