When we elevate proforma invoice to indent order we get option to choose exchange rate between exchange rate in proforma invoice or current exchange rate where we can choose one of them. We need option to enter exchange rate manually because we use a fixed rate for reporting which we revise ourselves from time to time. For example current USD rate is 71.74, but we want to put 70.00 for all indent orders till we decide to change this rate. When we pay commission to our staff and agents, we use this rate not the actual exchange rate.
There is an option for entering exchange rate manually while elevating proforma invoice to indent order or sales order. This comes as a third option along with two rates taken automatically from the system. However, by default this option is turned off and hidden. You will need to turn it on following the below instructions :
Go to admin >> system configuration and settings
In the section for sales settings there is an option “Allow manual editing of exchange rates while elevating Proforma Invoice to Sales Order.” Please edit the section and select this option. This will enable the manual edit block.
Please note, these are the system level settings and will apply to all branches and entities.
