Customize an existing locale on the fly

In this tutorial we will go through the steps to customize an existing locale "on the fly" so that the labels you are seeing of that entry screen display as works best for your company.

 

For example, you may want what is default labeled as Service Rate Quantity in the Labor subsection of a workorder to instead be labeled as Billable Hours

If you receive an message below, you MUST edit your user account via the User grid under Administration selecting a custom locale that has been created instead.

You will need to first follow the tutorial on creating a new locale and assigning it to your user account first. Than you can come back and perform this tutorial.

5. Exit out of the entry screen

 

The new text label will not show until you have exited out of the entry screen.

 

And if you have edited the text label for the main AyaNova navigation grids, you will need to exit out of AyaNova itself and then log back in.
