When did Joshua divide the land as an inheritance for Israel?

Joshua 11:23 (ESV)

23 So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the LORD had spoken to Moses. And Joshua gave it for an inheritance to Israel according to their tribal allotments. And the land had rest from war.

The word inheritance is used for the first time in this sentence. Joshua 14:1–19:51 will give more detail regarding how this division took place.
