>                 Key: OFBIZ-10931
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-10931
>             Project: OFBiz
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: accounting
>    Affects Versions: Trunk, Release Branch 16.11, Release Branch 17.12, Release Branch
18.12
>            Reporter: Pierre Smits
>            Priority: Major
>              Labels: CustomTimePeriod
>
> Currently in the overviews of Edit Custom Time Periods screen (see [1]) the user can
select a parent period for any given period record. This is done through a drop down widget
from EditCustomTimePeriod.ftl
> The construct for the values shown is: 
>  # the organisationPartyId, 
>  # the periodTypeId, and 
>  # the periodNum
>  # the customPeriodId
> The page shows the drop-down values as following examples:
>  * Company Fiscal Quarter: 2 [6011]
>  
>  * Company Fiscal Quarter: 3 [6012]
>  * Company Fiscal Quarter: 5 [6014]
>  * Company Fiscal Quarter: 2 [6016]
>  * Company Fiscal Quarter: 3 [6017]
>  * Company Fiscal Year: 1 [6010]
>  * Company Fiscal Year: 1 [6015]
> As can be observed, the information provided is confusing. And when the number of periods
to select from gets long (consider the hierarchy: month-quarter-year) it is easy to make
mistakes. 
> Furthermore, given that there is a hierarchy between periods, it should not be possible
to select a period that is outside the higher order. Meaning there is a FISCAL_MONTH defined
for say fromDate=2019-03-01 and thruDate = 2019-03-31, then It can not belong to a FISCAL_YEAR
that either ends before the fromDate of the FISCAL_MONTH period or start after the thruDate
of the FISCAL_MONTH.
