Security lock dates are date limitations that can be set for specific permissions. By setting lock dates, you can prevent users from editing historical data or backdating new items. Lock dates can be set by user group or globally.
User group lock dates are date/day limits set by permission. The limit is based on the date the item was entered, not necessarily the date that shows in the patient account. For example, you can only allow users to change insurance payments if they occur within a set amount of days or before a specific date.
Global lock dates bundle multiple permissions into one setting. Global lock dates prevent editing of old items and are the only way to prevent backdating of new items. See the full list of Security Permissions to identify which permissions are affected by global lock dates.
Date: Changes will only be allowed if they occur before the date entered.
Days: Changes will only be allowed within a set amount of days from the original entry date.
