Efficito has a customer who needs full multi currency support. Efficito has estimated the required effort at 12000 EUR. We (Efficito) want to commit to sponsoring 50% of the cost (6000 EUR). The customer can't vouch for more than 2000 EUR which leaves us with 4000 EUR left unsponsored.
In order to get the change done, I've created a fundraising at https://www.bountysource.
com/teams/ledgersmb/ fundraisers/701-multi- currency-from-after-thought- to-core-feature.
When the change is completed, the following functionalities will be available:
- Multiple rates per currency per day
- Advisory currency rates: one rate per currency for a specified period (minimum: one day)
- Data entry screen for maintenance of advisory rates
- Multiple currencies per GL transaction
In addition to the above, the following changes need to be implemented for the rewrite to work:
- Adjusting currency handling in
* AR/AP entry
* GL entry
* Payment entry (both single-payment and bulk payment)
- Changes to the System Defaults screen (for selection of the default currency)
- Changes to the database schema and stored procedures (business logic)
- Writing a migration script from the existing migration
It's our hope that enough people donate a smallish mount to make this change happen -- although bigger donations are highly appreciated of course.
Thanks in advance to everybody who will put up their donation! Everybody who isn't in a position to donate in a monetary sense: no problem, please report your findings with the software on one of the mailing lists or in the SourceForge bugtracker. Taking the time to report is a valuable donation as well!
