Set Defaults

First, you need to decide which default currencies you’d like to use.

  1. Go to Settings and click Currency Conversions from the right sidebar.
  2. Check the boxes to select which Supported Currencies you’d like to use throughout Pulse.
  3. Use the drop-down menu to choose the default currency for Cash on Hand.
  4. Decide whether to toggle “Let Read-only users change this when viewing Cash on Hand”, then save your preferences.
  5. If checked, this locks the currency list for your Read-only users. If unchecked, any Read-only user will be able to change to one of the other Supported Currencies in the Cash Flow and Reports views.
  6. If you choose to allow this, it will affect what all users will see when they log in to Pulse. Ex., If a user switches to CAD and forgets to switch back to USD, all users will see CAD next time they log in.
  7. Now set the default currency for each financial account by going to Settings > Financial Account. By default, they’re set to USD, but you can choose a different currency by using the drop-down menu under the Currency column.
  8. Choosing “None” will treat your data as numbers – not currency. This is the way that Pulse worked before adding currency choices.


If you are on our Plus or Premium plan, you can view your cash flow in whatever currency you like. Go to Cash Flow (in the menu bar) and select your currency from the drop-down in the top right of the table.

You can also run reports in different currencies. Go to Reports (in the menu bar), look for the drop-down menu in the top-right of the sidebar and select which currency you’d like to use in your report. Changing the currency in the drop-down menu will automatically update your report.
