Allow setting currency in expense rules

Since it is difficult for SmartScan to determine currency when symbols are shared (like $), it'd be incredibly helpful to allow setting currency using expense rules. There are several merchants that I automatically forward invoices for but then need to go in and manually change the currency.

For example: When expense from "DigitalOcean" comes in, mark the currency as "USD $".

    Hi @jakeom thanks for posting!

    I can see how expanding Expense Rules might be useful - remember to vote for your own idea!

    To clarify how SmartScan determines currency, here's more info if it's helpful in the meantime.

    Our SmartScan parser looks for a unique ISO currency code or unique currency symbol. If one doesn't exist, it populates the amount against your currently active policy default.

    It sounds like you're scanning a lot of receipts outside the policy default currency if you need to manually change it post-SmartScan. It might be helpful to change the default if it's a quick fix like that.
