Last Update
The General portlet allows a Teradata Viewpoint Administrator to set certain default settings for a Teradata Viewpoint server.
The locale is used to display content in the Viewpoint portal. Dates, times, and numbers are displayed in Viewpoint portlets in the format used by the selected locale. For example, the English (US) locale displays content in English and dates in a mm /dd /yy format. If the language pack for the selected locale is installed, all content appears in the selected language. If the language pack for the selected locale is not installed, content appears in English and dates, times, and numbers appear in the format for the selected locale.

Users can choose a different locale in the Profile portlet to override the default locale selection.
