Why journal entry does not have posting time field?

The SI,Payment Entry, PI have posting time but why is journal entry missing this important field?

I’ve never used an accounting standard that measured time for journal entries with any more precision than date, but if your system needs a time stamp it would be extremely easy to add.

Thanks I know it’s easy to add it via a custom field. But wanted to understand if there is any specific reason.

@mujeerhashmi they don’t have due the lack of Stocks transactions!

Except for the PE, most of the transactions will lead to Stock Movement at some moment, and that’s why time matters!

In the case of JV, a time field is just an accessory, since nobody trace transactions in a time level!

In the case of PE the unique thing I can trace against time is exchange rates!
