You can force a locale if you want to override locale preferences for course offerings and users. Generally, users can specify their own locale settings within their preferences.
It is possible to force a locale at the organization level by setting the following configuration variables:
- d2l.Region.ForceLocale – Set this variable to the locale you want to force.
- d2l.Region.PreferredOrgUnitLocale – If you enable this configuration variable, the organization uses the locale defined in d2l.Region.PreferredOrgUnitLocale, regardless of user and course offering settings.
Forcing a locale at the organization level disables users' ability to set personal locale preferences to suit their needs. Alternatively, if you want to limit locale options, we recommend deactivating locales you do not want in your organization.
