Auto-Updates of Foreign Exchange Rates
The exchange rates between currencies are automatically updated by the system. The "valid from" column shows when it was last updated. The auto-updates is enabled by default for all new setups. The system imports the rates twice per week, on Tuesday and Thursday. TripBuilder uses Currency Layer as source for the most recent rates. The listed rates are therefore read-only. The only configuration option available is the safety margin. This is a margin one can adds and will be added automatically on top of the FX rates.
Manually Updating Foreign Exchange Rates
Premium and Enterprise customers have the possibility to manage their FX rates manually. In order to do so, disable the option "auto-managed FX rates" in the UI. Once done, an edit pencil appears at the end of each FX rate row:
Steps to edit a currency exchange rate:
- Click on the edit pencil
- A pop-up window opens where you can edit the
- Exchange Rate
- Valid from date
(The validity can be set to a day in the future or as from now, but not in the past.)
- Click on Update Exchange Rate
The adjusted exchange rate and date will be automatically saved.
Adding the default currencies in order for them to display, can be done on request by Nezasa.
