Configuring the labels used in BMC Digital Workplace

As a BMC Digital Workplace administrator, you can customize the labels in BMC Digital Workplace. For example, you can change the title of the Contact IT button.

Before you begin

For each customization task, you must first specify the value for the default locale before you can add values for other locales that BMC Digital Workplace supports. 

To specify the value for the default locale, enter the text for the default locale. The default text is shown on the user’s device if the device has no locale defined in the browser settings or the BMC Digital Workplace administrator or end user has not selected a specific locale. For example, users with a specified locale of English see the text for the English locale. However, users with a specified locale of Hindi see the default text in English, because Hindi is not a supported locale. To see the list of all supported languages and locales, see Supported languages and locales. For more information about language settings for end users, see Setting a language for your end users.

To specify the value for other locales that BMC Digital Workplace supports, from the list of locales, select a locale and enter the text.
