The following regional settings are available:

SettingAdditional information
Time Zone

Your time zone, if it is different from the time zone configured by the system administrator. Time zones are used with a time zone converter in reports and for scheduling in the system. For example, in reports that display an incident's closure date and time, the time is displayed according to your time zone setting.

A service desk agent, Mary, closes incident INC00001 in at 12:00 noon Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Two BMC Remedy Smart Reporting users, Allen and Harish, customize their regional settings. Allen sets the time zone to America, Chicago (-6:00) and Harish sets the time zone to India Region, Calcutta (+5:30). Allen and Harish view a custom report, Incident Closure Report, that displays the time that incidents are closed. In Allen's view of the report, the closure time for INC00001 is displayed as 6:00 A.M., whereas Harish sees the closure time as 5:30 P.M.
Preferred Language

The language you prefer for displaying translated content, from a list of languages defined by a system administrator. BMC Remedy Smart Reporting displays translated content as follows:

  • All text on the user interface is translated to the selected language.
  • Static data such as company name or incident summary is displayed in the language that the user used in BMC Remedy AR System.
  • Dynamic data such as enumerated type fields (for example, Status and Priority) are displayed in the language you set in the Preferred Language setting.


  • This option is available only if Content Translation is enabled. 
  • Out of all listed languages, Korean is not fully supported. If you select Korean, some elements in the UI might not be translated.
Preferred Language Font

The font you prefer for displaying multibyte languages such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean (CJK). Use this setting to display characters correctly in content exported to PDF or RTF formats. Content types such as reports, dashboards, and reports in storyboards are included.

Note: You must select a font for multibyte languages to display correctly, whereas for languages such as English, you need not specifically select a font.

Date FormatThe date format you prefer if it is different from the default format in BMC Remedy Smart Reporting. Dates are displayed in content such as reports and filters.
Group Membership

The group membership setting lists all user groups to which you belong. An administrator can create user groups and add you to those groups.

Note: Group Membership is a display-only setting for informational purpose.
