# Generating Draft Transactions

<a id="draft-general"/>
<a id="draft-general"></a>

As a manager at a nonprofit, I need the ability to have staff propose draft
transactions that are not added to the books official until approved.

As a bookkeeper, I'd like the ability to set up and review draft transactions
before officially adding them to the books, so I can see if they were entered

It should be possible to view any [[reports|GeneratingReports]] or other
system information as if the draft transactions have been applied, via some
configurable option.

# Supporting Multiple Currencies

Most modern accounting systems offer some sort of support for multiple
currencies, but the details of how it is done matter greatly, as lack of
flexibility in how multiple currencies are supported can render the feature
useless to some organizations.

There are roughly two operating modes that I've observed in use by non-profit

## A "One Native Currency" Organization

In the USA at least, and perhaps elsewhere, the native currency to the
location of the entity is treated as the "one true currency" (which the USA
IRS calls your "functional currency") of the organization.  Specifically in
the USA, the IRS makes
[the following recommendation regarding currency conversion](

> Make all &hellip; determinations in your functional currency.  If your
> functional currency is the U.S. dollar, you must immediately translate into
> dollars all items of income, expense, etc. (including taxes), that you
> receive, pay, or accrue in a foreign currency and that will affect
> computation of your income tax.

An adequate accounting system should provide easy link-up between
double-entry accounting transactions and the documentation that relates to
the transactions.  For example,
[[expense reports and reimbursement requests|UseCases/ReimbursementRequest]]
often have a myriad of receipts and invoices associated with them.
[[Handling contractors|UseCases/ContractorsAndContracts]] has similar types
of backup documentation.

Ideally, the system should allow the exploration of and linkage to
documentation in both directions.  It should be trivial to answer questions

   * I have this receipt/invoice from our document repository.  Which
     accounting transactions relate to this receipt?  Has the transaction

   * Looking at this invoice, can I see the transaction where it was accrued
     and paid?
