Archives For currency conversion

We’ve added yet another feature to make expense reporting easier for you.  Not working with US dollars?  Now you can set the default currency for your account to be the legal tender of your locale.  Feel free to import expenses in one of the 58 supported currencies.  Add these expenses to your report as you normally would.  When the report is generated, we’ll automatically convert all expenses in to your local currency automatically.  All historical currency conversion rates are nominal noon rates imported directly from the Bank of Canada at 14:30 EST, daily.

Expensify : Expense reports that don’t suck!

Funny how the most obvious things slip by. You might recall that we just released a new “Mileage (and other unit) support” feature. It just occurred to me that a perfect use of this “other unit” functionality is foreign currencies, duh! It’s so incredibly obvious, naturally I’d only realize it once I had the need to log a cash expense in Turkish Lira. So to do that I simply:

  1. Went to my settings page
  2. Created a new unit named “lira”
  3. Set it to the current exchange rate ($0.65/lira)

Now I can log Turkish expenses by just creating expenses like “160 lira – Korean hostel 2 nights 4 people”, and it automatically converts it to the relevant USD amount. Brilliant! I mean, I knew we were pretty cool, but even *I* sometimes underestimate ourselves.
