You, as an Admin have the option to bulk update users' preferred language for individuals or groups by setting automated rules to change the preferred language.
To do so, click on the Admin tab (from the upper navigation menu) and select "Set Preferred Content Language" under Members.
Step 1: Select Language
Find the language that you want to set as a preferred one and click on it! You can use the search field in order to limit your results.
Step 2: Select Users
After the desired language is selected, it is time to select the users! You have the option to select either specific employees (Individual assignment) or a group of employees based on their job and location (Advanced assignment).
You can find individuals easier using the search field and drop-down filter menus. In order to select an individual, simply click the Plus symbol next to his/her name in the left-hand column. The user will then appear in the right-hand Selected column. To remove an individual from the list, click the Minus symbol.
Once you have selected the users that you want, add a message if needed, choose if you want to change the Curricula Language (for multilanguage curricula), and click on the blue "Set language" button at the bottom of your page in order to complete the process.
You can also select users based on their job and location. Moreover, you can create an assignment rule to be applied automatically in the future.
Under Advanced assignment, select the specific job to which this process should be applied. Then, select both the desired Above Units and Units in their respective columns, filtering using the drop-down menus, if needed. The number of individuals affected will appear below.
You have the choice of either to set this language as a preferred one this one time, and/or setting up a rule that will automatically assign individuals under these parameters to have this language as a preferred one in the future.
Check Automated assignment rule to create a rule for this language that will be applied also to future hires.
Check Exclude existing academy members if you ONLY want this to pertain to future members, as opposed to assigning it now.
Moreover, you have the option to set a Rule Start date and a Rule Expiration date per auto-assignment rule which will define until when the rule should be active.
Last but not least, choose if you want to change the Curricula Language (for multilanguage curricula), and click on the blue "Set Preferred Language/ Set Language Now and Set Rule" button at the bottom of your page in order to complete the process.
