Customizing the terminology used in BMC Digital Workplace

BMC Digital Workplace enables you to customize the names of items that appear on your users' desktop browsers and mobile devices. For example, you can update the name of the service desk to My Company Service Desk.

To update the terminology

Important

Enter the text for all locales that your users might use, and for the default locale. The default text is shown on the user’s device if the device has no text defined for the locale or no specific locale selected. For example, users with a specified locale of English see the text for English. However, users with a specified locale of Hindi see the default text, because Hindi is not a supported locale. To see the list of all supported languages and locales, go to Supported languages and locales.
