In config manual 2.5 section 5-7-3 detailing the steps taken to "Open Accounting Period 1" I believe one final step is missing.
Instruction "10" states Click Open / Close All. Period 1 is opened.
However when I Click Open / Close All another box named Open / Close all Base Documents is shown. I have to then click Okay before I receive a message stating that the Process has been completed successfully.
I am assuming that this happens to everyone, if so, perhaps this step should be added to the manual.

You must understand that this is the normal behavior of every procedure of the application; i.e. each time you execute a procedure, a new pop up arises where you can:
- configure its parameters (if there is any, like for example when completing an invoice), and
- confirm (or cancel) the execution of the procedure.
It's still a good idea to add it to the manual though, so that users understand it's a normal part of the process.
I agree Rachel. I guess that the config manual is possibly one of the first documents a potential Openbravo user sees and at that stage everything is new and strange. If processes are described exactly as they happen it saves the have I done this right or not dilemma.
Having now posted numerous (although not yet successfully) manual payments I am now more familiar with the workings of the system and confident enough to make a few minor suggested changes. Hopefully this will help others and I feel I am giving something back to the forums that I am currently "taking things from!!"
