How to Activate Multiple Currency in Salesforce



Currency Setup

In Salesforce, you can specify which currencies your organization uses, and individual users can apply specific currencies to their settings based on where they do business.

By default, Salesforce organizations use a single currency. Once you set the required currency locale in your company settings, all currency values on records display in that currency.

To enable and apply multiple currencies:

  1. From Setup search for Company Information in the Quick Find, then select Company Information.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. Check Activate Multiple Currencies.

Once multiple currencies is enabled you also:

  • Activate additional currencies and optionally select a new corporate currency.
  • Ensure users have correct personal currencies.
  • Make sure users use the correct currency when creating records.
