Description

 

  • When certain languages are set for a user there are issues when bulk editing assignments dates, where they would disappear when clicking away from the field or they are being altered to a different date than what should be set.

  • Languages I found where they would disappear:

    • English (Australia) - all days

    • Cymraeg - all days

    • Íslenska - all days

    • Kreyòl Ayisyen - all days

    • Magyar - all days

    • Norsk (Bokmål) - all days

    • Norsk (Bokmål) GS/VGS - all days

    • Polski - only Sunday

    • Reo Māori (Aotearoa) - all days

    • Svenska - only when setting to Thursday

    • Svenska GR/GY - random days

    • Türkçe - only when setting to a Monday or Saturday

    • Ελληνικά - all days

    • український - all days

    • Հայերեն - all days

    • עברית - all days

    • العربية - all days

    • فارسی - all days

  • Languages where it would enter in a different date than what should be set:

    • Deutsch - Entering a date will change it to a day ahead

    • Français (Canada) - Entering a date will change will change the date to the current or next day

    • Norsk (Nynorsk) - Entering a date will change will change the date to the current or next day

 

Expected Behavior

 

Instead the date should not disappear or be changed other than to what the user has selected.
