Litify Financials v1 Install Steps

There are a few crucial post-install steps to follow before you can begin using Litify Financials. The User completing these steps must be an Admin.

1. Install for Specific Profiles

Litify Financials should be installed for only the Users who will have access to it. Otherwise it would add blocked access to certain components and applications, which may be confusing for a User without access.

Click the Install link to get started > Select ‘Install for Specific Profiles…’ > Select the users who should have access to Litify Financials > Click Install

If your firm is planning on using the optional Ledger feature, you’ll also need to add the Ledger component. This can either be grouped under ‘Financials’ with the Financial Summary or be added in a separate tab.

Add it to the Financials tab by clicking and dragging ‘Financial Ledger’ to the Financials tab below the Financial Summary component.

5. Define Global Settings

Follow the steps in this article to continue configuring your Master Object and other global settings.

6. (Optional) Configure Ledger

Follow the steps in this article to configure the Ledger for your organization.

We highly, highly recommend using the packaged Transactions object for your Ledger. If you’re planning on using a custom object for your ledger, you must add a transaction_type picklist field to the custom object with “Credit” and “Debit” as the only options.

From Object Manager > Select your custom object > Click Edit > Click ‘Fields & Relationships’ > Click New

Click the bubble beside ‘Picklist’ > Click Next > Name the field “Transaction_Type”

Click the bubble beside ‘Enter values with each value separated by a new line’ > Type “Credit” > In a new line, type “Debit” > Click Next > Click Save
