Incorrect currency symbol in reports

Some of our users have reported that, when generating reports in Method, the currency symbol that appears is inconsistent with the currency they want to express: for example, a pound sterling symbol (£) in place of a dollar symbol ($).

This issue can be traced back to the user's browser language settings and is easily corrected!

If necessary, it is possible to hard-code your currency symbols into your reports through customization.

The following steps will show you how to update your browser's language settings for the three browsers most commonly used by Method users.
