Issues:†††††† How will Transfers/Allocations be handled in PS?

Other Issues are:Workflows, Date (transaction date), Where will the transaction detail be stored, either in the subsidiary application or General Ledger Journal Voucher lines, Will UD use the current Journal Voucher EZ-form or PS Journal Voucher form (Rick recommends PS), How will we handle Suspense, either recycle, reject or suspense?
