Here is a special shout out to all the business owners based in other countries using WorkingPoint to help manage their businesses: You can now change the currency symbol in your accounts!

By popular demand, a global setting has been added to allow you to select the currency symbol that appears in your WorkingPoint account, including on invoices, on reports, and on the dashboard.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Scroll down until you see the Preferences section.
  3. For Currency Symbol, choose the symbol for your country’s currency, if available.

By selecting a symbol other than United States of America Dollars USD ($), WorkingPoint will update all of the currency symbols throughout the application from “$” to the symbol you selected. This means, you can’t use one symbol for one type of transaction and another symbol for another type: they will all display with the same currency symbol.

In addition, WorkingPoint does not handle currency exchanges or conversions. For example, if you switch from United States of America Dollars ($) to European Euro (€), the value for all transactions will be the same as they were before, only the symbol will change. And formatting for the currency values, such as commas and decimals, will remain in US Dollar format.
