We are testing the odoo 9, we are using 2 currencies, the main one is CRC and the Secundary is USD, in the accounting DashBoard is looking the USD amount like CRC, so I do not know how I set the convertion of the currencies to aplie the exact Rates.

Example if I bill  $100 it looks in the Dashboard 100 CRC inste of 56000 CRC


"Accounting Dashboard" is not a question. I edited your post so it now has a question.

Hi Gioanny! I had that problem some time ago, and I think I have fixed it. Take a look at this page https://www.odoo.com/documentation/user/9.0/accounting/others/multicurrencies/how_it_works.html and check the "Live Currency Rate" section.

There you will see that you can synchronize it with Yahoo or the European Central Bank. Yahoo is very very accurate I think so.

Then the exchange rate will be updated automatically. You will see something like this: http://screencast.com/t/QH4p0ehTP

So you can check if the rate was updated correctly everyday.

Pura vida! ;)
