The SAP S/4HANA solution “Display Journal Entries in T-Account View” provides accountants the opportunity to comprehend journal entries in a more native way. Visualizing general ledger accounts with the standard bookkeeping structure of T-accounts not only ensures that most accountants will already be familiar with the tool, it also adds an additional layer to their analysis. Thanks to the various filter options and the interactive visualization of related entries, the drill-down to the required information is intuitive and efficient.
