Add Currency Rates

Each currency has its currency rates, it’s important to add them all in order to get the correct and the accurate cost of the issue with different currencies in issue cost lines.
 

Add Cost Lines

Every created issue has its own cost and its own default currency by selecting it from Default Currency from Issue Cost Panel , or click on Use Default Currency to select project Pre-selected Default Currency . To create issue cost you need to add cost lines inside Cost Panel at Activity section of the issue, each cost line may have its own Category & Currency, and the currency will be converted into Issue Default Currency.
If the Cost Line Currency doesn’t have Currency Rate to convert it to Issue Default Cost, an Add Rate button will appear to add the rate in order to be able to calculate the issue total cost.
If you changed Issue Cost Default Currency, and the selected currency having a missing currency rate for some cost lines currencies a popup dialog will appear containing the missing rates to be added, to calculate the issue cost.
