    Hi community, first off thank you for contributing and detailing why posting manual journals in a foreign currency is of interest to you all.

    We appreciate our customers would like to see more capability in accounting for and dealing in foreign currencies across Xero.

    In it's current form Manual Journals are a part of Xero that require some upgrade to uplift technology in order to provide capability for ideas like this to be considered. We have intentions of bringing attention to this over the coming year, however getting this done first is necessary before we can even think about adding newer functionality like journaling in another currency to the mix.

    To set the expectation here, there is no work planned over 2023 for this feature. We know it's of high interest and when we're in a place to reassess we will share with you here.

    Thank you for your engagement on this idea. To help explain a little on how this works in the Account Transactions(AT) report - what shows in the Description field when running the report is dependent on the type of account you're running the report for.

    For example, when running the AT report for a bank account, transactions will show the Contact name in the Description field. This is because the detail that is entered on each description line in the body of a transaction relates to the account the line item is coded to. 

    To see the detail, you'll need to run the report for the account code, not the bank account. This is also how the report works for some other accounts such as the system sales tax account, Account Receivable, and Accounts Payable.

    If you're trying to find the account a bank transaction or system account line has…

    Totally agree. The description column must have the transaction details as per our recording to help the readers of the report understand the company expenditures. We look forward to getting it fixed by Xero as soon as possible.
