API to set exchange rates
Create and API entry point to set default exchange rates, just like we do on the Settings page.
Rational: here in Poland, we're obliged to use the Polish Central Bank exchange rates on accounting. Having an API for it makes it possible for us the call it once everyday to set the rate for the next day. Without this we're not able to use Xero officially for bookkeeping. (we have to setup the rates for this whole calendar year!)

This has been a request for more than 11 years...any progress??

This would be very useful to set rate via API, rather than via the web interface. It would save our staff a lot of time.

Hi FredCK, we're operating a branch in Poland and we've just run into this problem...did you find a solution for setting those exchange rates using NBP data?
This is pretty much essential. The exchange rates that businesses use are never the same as those that are publicly available. There might be special deals arranged with brokers, and/or commission to take into account.
