Reproducing the Issue

  • As a hiring manager when processing a new hire through the orientation step there is not an option on the panel to switch from English to Spanish.
  • Below is what I expect to see on the panel, however the option to switch language is missing from the panel.

  • This is expected behavior and standard logic during the orientation step for the panel not to display an option to switch from English to Spanish. 


 If you are at the orientation step as a user and you want the panels to switch from English to Spanish please follow these steps.

1. If you are logging in directly into Onboarding  go to My Profile from menu bar.
