Hi Daoud,

Thanks for your insights into GP which have been useful to many of us.

Do you perhaps know the tables related to the assignment of users to entities? Doing it manually seems the inefficient way to go and I would prefer to write a SQL to do the insertion if I know the tables. Thanks

I'm wondering if there is a way to mass modify accounts for an organization if the ledger accounts are already set up and you are just implementing account level security. Do you have to go through the chart of accounts one by one to assign them an organizational level?

You have an option to mass assign accounts, go to Cards>> System >> Organisational Assignments and enjoy!
