Users should be also able close fiscal periods/accounting periods by module/subledger area to prevent transactions from being posted back to prior periods. Users should be able to select which fiscal periods are closed by module and this should prevent all users from posting transactions in that module/subledger area if the posting date is in one of the closed fiscal periods/accounting periods. This makes maintaining periods much easier than using the posting from/to dates when you have a number of different users working in different functional areas and you want to close by those functional areas. This makes it simple to close the Vendor subledger and prevent any A/P related transactions from being posted back to prior months while still allowing G/L adjustments and this would then not require maintaining posting from/to dates for each user.

This is an important feature that exists in virtually all other ERPs. Not having this doesn't make sense, so please ensure it's on the roadmap for implementation.

Using dates to control when a module is closed is especially difficult if you are not on a calendar year. For example, I might close August calendar dates for sales, sales tax, & use tax but I want to keep AP or GL open for certain dates in August because our accounting period runs 8/12 to 9/8. 8/12 to 8/31 needs closed for certain modules only. Doing this at the GL level or as mentioned on the journal template-level would be fantastic for those not using all the individual modules/sub ledgers and who are mainly using the GL in Business Central.

Best option in my opinion is to implement the belgian code here. > Fields 'allowed from' / 'allowed till' on journal template-level. For me this is code that should be implemented in W1-version.
