Symptom

How to mass update or mass change of date pattern preference for all users

Environment

-SuccessFactors LMS

-Learning Management System

Resolution

We have two options where we can change the preferences of users:
 
--> Option 1:
1) Login to LMS --> Go to references--> Geography--> Locale
2) select the locale and select the date pattern that you want to use.
3) Now make this date pattern as default and will be associated with any NEW user associated with this locale
4) Through mass update (connector/import tool):
Update of locale will force an update of date and time pattern, because it is part of the locale.
 
Step 1: SYSTEM CONFIG -> CONNECTORS set sfuser.connector.update.updatePreferences=Y or user.connector.update.updatePreferences=Y
Step 2: in the input file change the user's locale to an other locale f.e. your current locale is German, use English. Run the connector
Step 3: in the input file change the user's locale back to the original value f.e. German. Run the connector
Step 4: reset sfuser.connector.update.updatePreferences=N or user.connector.update.updatePreferences=N to avoid further system update of users individual settings by connectors
 
--> Option 2:
1) Go to LMS admin--> Configuration--> User settings
2) Search for Allow Learners to change Divisional Information. and tick mark this
3) Through this users will be able to change their preferences.
