Overview of how to control the display language and the format of numbers, dates, and times for the LMS365 user interface

Different factors influence in which language and in which format of numbers, date, and time the user interface of LMS365—course catalogs, courses, training plans, the LMS365 Course Player, notifications, certificates, and reports—are shown to users.

In this article, we will provide an overview of what controls the display language and format of numbers, dates, and time of these different parts of the LMS365 product. 

 

In this article:

 

Course catalogs, courses, training plans, and the LMS365 Course Player

The language of LMS365 course catalogs is selected during the course catalog creation process and is inherited by courses and training plans within it.

This language defines the display language of the LMS365 web parts of the course catalog—which controls the display of the LMS365 course catalog home page, My Training Dashboard, as well as course and training plan home pages.

Also, this language defines the display language of the LMS365 Course Player, in where learners interact with, for example, learning modules and quizzes. 

However, ultimately, the language of the LMS365 web parts and the LMS365 Course Player user interface is determined by SharePoint settings. Please see this article for more details.

The format for numbers, dates, and time displayed in LMS365 web parts and the LMS365 Course Player is determined by the user's browser settings. Please find more details in this article.

 

The LMS365 app for Microsoft Teams

For the LMS365 app for Microsoft Teams, the language displayed will be the language that the user has chosen as the App Language from the Microsoft Teams app settings. Please see more details here.

 

The LMS365 mobile app

For the LMS365 mobile app, the admin can either select the default language of the app for all learners or select that the language of the user's device will determine the language of the app. Please find more details here.

The format for date and time is MMMM dd/ yyyy—meaning the mobile app will show the full name of the month, day of the month (from 01 through 31), and year as a four-digit number. For example, January 14, 2022.

 

The LMS365 Admin Center

The language of the LMS365 Admin Center depends on the individual browser settings of the admin in question. Please see this article for more details.

 

Certificates

By default, the language and the format of the date and time of certificates are controlled by the Regional Settings of the course or training plan in question.

However, the language of the certificate variables can be changed on the level of the specific template. Also, the date and time format of variables can be changed for specific templates by using relevant available variables. Please see this article for more details.

 

Notifications

The Locale settings of a course or training plan will determine the format of numbers, date, time, and the language of notifications related to the course or training plan in question.

Please see this article for more information.

 

Reports

The Locale settings of a course catalog, course, or training plan will determine the format of numbers, dates, time, and the language of reports related to the course catalog, course, or training plan in question.
