Based on numerous requests from their customers, G-Accon has released a highly anticipated new feature – the ability to download bills and invoices in a customer’s currency. This can be done by using the Aged Receivables and Payables Detail and Summary report.
This is useful in situations where customers have a set base currency, but sales are also made in a different currency. This new feature is integral when it comes to reviewing these customers’ cash flows because now you will be able to see how much your customers actually owe in whichever currency you choose.
The client currency information is available through the Aged Receivables Detail and Summary reports. This feature also allows our customers to toggle between the company’s base currency and the transactional currency. All receivables and payables can now be seen in both the based and transactional currencies.

How can I schedule automatic downloads?
To schedule an automatic data refresh, you can create a workflow through the option Create Workflow to schedule the automatic refresh and notification processes. Automatic workflow allows users to create different workflows, include specific templates, set up different schedules for various workflows, and notify the customers, clients, and team members using different automatic notifications within the same spreadsheet. See the Automation process for further explanation.
You also have the ability to simultaneously download data from the multiple G-Accon templates within the Google Spreadsheet to the multiple Xero organizations.
Aged Receivables and Payables Reports allow you to generate reports in the base (company) currency as well as your customer’s currency by identifying the field ‘Display balances in the Customer’s currency‘ as true or false.
In the example below, if you select ‘Display balances in the Customer’s currency’ to be “false“, then the Aged Receivables or Aged Payables reports will be generated based on your company’s (base) currency.
On the other hand, if you choose ‘Display balances in the Customer’s currency’ as “true“, then the Aged Receivables or Aged Payables reports will be generated based on your clients’ currency instead.
As a reminder, with G-Accon, you also have the ability to automate reporting, including Aged Receivables and Payables, emails, and alerts, upload data in bulk, save custom templates in the Cloud, and much more.
