Goal

When going through the Using Assets Guide for Cloud we found the attached description for how to handle the asset clearing account when you create an asset based on an invoice in a foreign currency.
According to the user guide you will have to enter two manual journals in GL each time you create an asset based on foreign currency in order to let the clearing account balance in both entered and accounted currency.
First, this will be very cumbersome to the client who might have quite a number of assets created that way,
and second, the procedure contains quite some risc to create errors like
entering the manual journal in foreign currency with a GL date having another rate than the original Payables transaction
or simply forgetting to get all manual journals created

IIn a system that basically sends all transactions more or less automatically from module to module/user to user this appears to be a very outdated way of doing it. There must be a better way to handle that situation.
The only alternative seems to be to let the balance in foreign currency grow bigger and bigger as time goes by. And this isn't desirable either.

Would you please look into this?
