  4. In Provisioning >  company settings, under the Analytics and Dashboard Tabs & Misc Reporting section, the text is missing for one or more domains.
    • domain name missing.jpg


Incorrect configuration of a custom Language Pack.
The label corresponding to the key for one or more Ad Hoc domains is missing from CUSTOM language pack used, although the Key was entered.
The system interpreted the field as a “” (blank) which cased the error whenever it was required. For example, when creating or displaying Ad Hoc reports.


You can check/solve the issue as follows:

  1. Check what language pack is configured in the system via Provisioning > Company Settings
  2. Verify the user local and the respective language pack
  3. Based on the above identify the language pack to check and download it via Provisioning >  Import/Update/Export LanguagePacks

  4. Check the description for all the Keys that correspond to the name of an Ad Hoc / Report - Table domain.
    In the below example, the description for the 'Learning Activities'domain is missing.
    • key missing.jpg
  5. If not make sure you enter the appropriate description and upload the template

  6. The Learning activities text should now be filled accordingly where required. For example, in provisioning and for Ad Hoc Reports domain name
    • domain name shown.jpg  ad hoc learning act shown.jpg
  7. You should now be able to run and create reports successfully
