Generate Inter-Company Entries
If selected, this option permits the use of inter-company GL accounts that handle accounting for transferring funds between related organizations. Inter-company GL accounts are beyond the scope of this guide. See Adding Inter-Company GL Accounts Setup for configuration information.

This tab stores a list of GL accounts used for transferring funds between related organizations. See Adding Inter-Company GL Accounts for configuration information.
GL Accounts Sub-Tab
This tab stores a list of GL accounts that can automatically be applied to Products linked to that Organization. When an Organization has one or more GL Accounts defined, Aptify will use these GL Accounts when generating General Ledger entries for a Product linked to the Organization if the Product does not have a particular GL Account of its own already specified. See Adding GL Accounts at the Organization Level for details.
The Attachments tab lists any files relevant to the Organizations record.
The Comments tab contains any comments relevant to the Organizations record.

The address type that applies to the address information shown directly below this field. A user can specify a different address for each address type that appears in the drop-down list.
Standard options that can be specified are Address and Billing Address. The default is Address. Users can also add more addresses, as necessary.
For more information on managing addresses and using the address toolbar, see Using the Address Management Toolbar.
Address Fields (Street, City, State, ZIP, County, Country)
Address information for the organization. If the system recognizes the Postal Code entered by a user, it automatically populates the City, State, and County fields. If the system does not recognize the Postal Code, it does not modify the City, State, and County fields.
By default, the Country is set to United States. When you enter a foreign postal code, the system may automatically populate the Country field, depending on the system’s configuration and the available Postal Code data. See Understanding the Postal Code Look-up Functionality for more information.
When an organization’s address information changes, the system automatically flows down the address information to all linked employees and subsidiaries. The update only occurs if the employee’s work address or subsidiary’s address exactly matches the prior street address for the organization.
In Aptify web, the Bad Address option is always displayed on any form where the address control is displayed, no matter how the administrator has configured the bad address input properties. However, enabling or disabling the Bad Address option in this form does not affect the status of the address. This option is effective only when it is set on the Companies and Persons top-level entities. This is a known issue set to be resolved in a future release of Aptify. Contact Aptify Technical Support for updates.
Telephone and fax number of the organization. Three fields are available to accommodate the country code (for countries outside the United States and Canada), area code, and telephone number, respectively.
