We have adapted a lot of the Silverfin meeting minutes to suite our needs as documents. They all use the .period variables to store data. We now want to switch from documents to reconciliations. From what I understood it was not good practice to use the .period in a reconciliation to “copy data”. As those are meeting minutes, we normally don’t have any data to copy to an other period. I also understood (but please correct me if I’m wrong) that using the .period was not necessary in reconciliations because all the data is automatically linked to the period.
What I wanted to know if is there was any problem if we used our old code with .period variables that we used as documents and copy/pasted them as reconciliations. Except the fact that we cannot carry on data to a next period, will there be any issue? It would avoid us having A LOT of work changing all the variables. It seems to work correctly but I’d prefer having confirmation.
Thanks for your help.
