Localising your site
If you have users across the world, or even just users who speak languages other than your site's default language, you may want to localise your site.
You can set a default location (including timezone) for your site and enable multiple languages via language packs.
By exploring these settings, you can give your users the flexibility to use your site in their native language, significantly improving the user experience.
- Check locale compatibility
- Location settings
- Check user timezones
- Install a language pack
- Language settings
- Change a word or phrase
- Language filter strings
- Using multiple languages
Customising your personal experience
Everyone with an account, regardless of their roles, can configure their personal user preferences and set-up their user profile to improve their experience on the site.
Users can change things such as their preferred language, how they receive notifications and messages, as well as some basic security settings such as passwords and security keys.
Customising your site's appearance
You can customise your site's appearance to reflect the needs of your organisation by editing the theme, adding blocks, and customising the front page.
This section also looks at how you can utilise dashboards to create custom experience for different groups of users (such as dashboard for all first aiders).
You can also create user tours to guide others through your site, which is especially useful for first time visitors.
See more on site navigation page.
Extending your site
Totara contains a lot of powerful functionality as standard, but you may want to extend your site by adding additional features, such as plugins.
Additionally, you can now make your site accessible and optimised on smartphones using the Totara Mobile app.
