The Currency Conversion app requests the current exchange rates of each currency to the Euro from the European Central Bank (ECB) and updates them. In this way, the current exchange rate to the euro can always be stored in documents in foreign currencies and output with the financial accounting export.
You can find the app "Currency Conversion" in the App Center.
The "Overview" tab shows all rates that are regularly fetched and entered. A prerequisite for using this app is that the Process Starter "Currency ECB Rates" has been activated.
Using the menu column, you can edit entries via the "pencil" icon and delete via the "cross" icon.
