Adding a new currency




My company is use to work with Central African Francs (XAF) as default currency.

At the currency list in the spreedsheet, we do not have it. Does anyone know how to add a currency?


Thanks in advance!

    Greetings from the middle of Europe to the middle of Africa! Smile

    I also have the same problem with the very famous Hungarian Forints (HUF), but

    - I understand that not all the currencies of the World should take place in the list, and

    1. - personally I don't like letters or signs before/after numbers, so I just put HUF, Ft, EUR, whatever in the header of the column and check the option "No currency". 
    2. Nevertheless, I wonder what's the policy behind the selection of the 23 currencies, since they do not exactliy correspond to the ones of the biggest economies. I guess what matters is the number of Smartsheet users from different countires. (Neither of the choices sounds good for us :)


    Also, that might be an enhancement request to have an "Other Currencies" option in the bottom of the list where all these "exotic" currencies could be found. I don't think it to be a big deal for developers.
