Trip Setup

Purchases are organized by 'trip'. A trip can either be a vacation, such as "Europe 2009", or a business trip.

Each trip requires:

  • Home Country: Your home country's currency is used in all foreign exchange calculations.
  • Name: The name of the trip, such as "Europe 2009".
  • Budget: The amount, in your home currency, that you expect to spend.

Optionally you can add:

  • Notes: Description of the trip.
  • Foreign Countries: Any foreign countries that you will visit on your trip. Their currencies will be used in currency exchange calculations. This is completely optional and no currency conversions will be made if they are left out.
