End-of-Day Designation

With this feature, you can postpone the automated designation of your hedging instruments until the end of the day. In this case, the automated designation is not started when the hedging instrument is saved. Instead, you start the automated designation of the financial transactions at the end of the day using the program Reprocess Financial Instruments for Automated Designation function. This enables you to take several snapshots per day with the day-reference indicator. Only after you have taken the last snapshot of the day do you trigger the end-of-day designation for all hedging instruments of the day.
