Manage Display Text

Abstract

You use the display text feature to selectively change how text displays on individual system screens. Display text includes instructional text.

Introduction

For example, a client may want the City field to display as City in a job requisition template but may want the same field to appear as Job City in the Advanced Applicant Search screen to make it clear the field refers to the city where the job (rather than the applicant) is located.

Display text is categorized as follows:

  • All messages.

  • Buttons and page messages.

  • Errors, warnings, info and validations.

  • Field labels.

Additionally, display text items are associated with system entities (for example, job requisition, activity form, field driving rule, and so on). The entity, and the item associated with the entity, is referred to as a key.

For example, entity.jobRequisition.City is a key that refers to the City label associated with the job requisition entity. When you view display text for this key, you see entries for every screen on which the City label, as related to the job requisition entity, displays.

Each key and the item associated with it is referred to as a key-value pair. If multiple languages are enabled, you can add display text in additional languages. Each display text item you add in another language is referred to as a translation.

You use the System Configuration: Manage Display Textscreen to modify display text on individual screens.

  1. In the Global Toolbar, display the Settings menu and select Settings.

  2. Select the System Configuration tab, if necessary, to display system configuration options.

Adding a Translation
Abstract

If multiple languages are enabled for the system, you can add a Display Text box for each language and specify the language-appropriate text. This is referred to as adding a translation.

Note: Available languages are configured at the database level during the initial setup of the staging site. This is not a system configuration. If additional languages are required but not available in your site, contact the database administrator.

  1. Display the Manage Display Text screen.

  2. Use the Show statement to limit the key choices in the list pane.

  3. In the list pane, select the key for which you want to display text values.

  4. In the Add New Translation section, enter the appropriate text in the Display Text box, select the appropriate language from the Language drop-down list and then select the Add Translation button. The new translation is added to each screen on which the display text appears.

  5. If necessary, modify the text for individual screens.

  6. Select the Save Changes button.

Uploading and Downloading Key-Value Pairs
Abstract

If you need to make large scale changes to display text, you can download the key-value pairs to a csv or xls file, make your changes and then upload the new pairs to the system.

For example, if you need to replace “requisition” with “job” throughout the system, you can download the key-value pairs, perform a find and replace operation in the csv or xls file and then upload the revised key-value pairs to the system.
