Configuring Custom Text


After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Configure Custom Text in SAP Fieldglass.

Custom Text

Custom Text allows organizations to replace most of the default terms used in SAP Fieldglass with terms commonly used by the organization.

This allows users to recognize application functions based on the internal terminology used. This affects all menus, lists, and titles that contained the original text and applies to the entire Buyer company, displaying for all users. For example, this company uses the term "Service Contract" instead of Statement of Work or SOW, so they've instructed SAP Fieldglass to use their preferred term in place of the SAP Fieldglass default term.

Custom Text can be created for each language enabled in the company configuration and will display the language that has been customized. For example, if custom text has been configured in English but not Japanese, English-speaking users will see customized text, but Japanese-speaking users will not.

  • Background Check is used to create custom text associated with background checks.

Create Custom Text

SAP Fieldglass is natively configured to use the term "Worker" to refer to the people who are hired as part of a contingent workforce.

However, WorkingNet has always used the term "Resource" to refer to contingent workers, so they would like to align their SAP Fieldglass tenant to that existing terminology to ensure a seamless workflow.

Here’s how you will customize the text in SAP Fieldglass.
