Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Administrator work center.
  2. Click on Language Adaptation.
  3. Select work center XYZ (XYZ represents the name of the work center).
  4. Click on Collect Texts.
  5. Change the work center XYZ (XYZ represents the name of the new work center).
  6. Save it.
  7. Go to new work center.
  8. Open document XYZ (XYZ represents the ID of the document).
  9. Go to Document Flow Tab.
  10. Check that the Language adaptation did not adapt the name in the links.


The document attributes which are reflected in "boxes" in document flow cannot be configured (neither added nor hidden) by key user.

Also language adaptation is not supported as the document flow is very generic and uses dynamic labels that cannot be adjusted.


This is the standard behavior of the system.
