2529305 - "Add New" option is not working in Arabic Locale - LMS


When logged in as an Admin "Add New" option under the learning menu in LMS is not working for Arabic locale.

This is happening for all the menu options under the Learning tab.


  • SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS) - All Supported Versions

Reproducing the Issue

1. Login to LMS as an Administrator and switch the locale to Arabic.

2. Select the Learning tab and Select Item, Catalogue or any of the other options.

3. "Add New" button is visible but cannot be selected.



LMS admin interface does not support RTL (Right-to-Left) languages


This is an expected behaviour of the application currently.

As of now, the LMS admin interface does not support RTL (Right-to-Left) languages. Labels might get loaded when you switch to Arabic but the screens are not complaint to RTL standards and hence we experience issues like the one here.
