Language (Region) Override

You can override the default Company Locale setting in your preferences. For example, if you company's default is English (United States) and you want to view the application in Français then you can change this to display the language.

  1. From the Language (Region) Override drop-down,select the language
  2. Click the Save Changes button and the application now displays the selected language. 


  • This only affects your own user profile and is not a global setting.
  • Any manually entered information by a user remains in the original language and is not displayed in the selected language. 

Time Zone Override

Each user can set their own time zone override which will override the time zone chosen by the company.

For example: Your company is in Texas, USA, and sets the database Time Zone to Central.  However, you work remotely in Florida, USA.  Since you want to see all the entries displayed in the Eastern Time zone, you use the Time Zone Override, to override what the company default displays.

  1. From the Time Zone Override drop-down, select the time zone.
  2. Click the Save Changes button.

Only Show Active Records on the Planning Board

  1. Toggle the setting to ON to indicate that only Active Work Orders will appear on the Planning Board.   
  2. Click the Save Changes button.

Now, when the Work Order is completed, it disappears from the Planning and Assignment Board.
