The New Accounting Reporting Standards for the classification of net assets call for only two categories of reporting: Unrestricted and Restricted net assets. The old standard allowed three categories for reporting: Unrestricted, Temporarily Restricted and Permanently Restricted. The new standard does not distinguish between Temporarily and Permanently Restricted Accounts.

How to get a report where Temporary and Permanently Restricted Accounts are printed separately
For any report which normally shows Dedicated Accounts, you will now have the option in the Report Options of the Configure Report screen to mark an option called Temp/Perm Restriction Format. Marking this option will give you the report format you had before the new reporting standards were implemented.
Example from Statement of Financial Position where the Temp/Perm Restriction Format Option is checked.
