GCconnex users are encouraged to add an avatar to their GCconnex profile. Setting an avatar on your profile gives it a personal touch and it makes it easier for your colleagues to identify your profile. While it is preferable to show GCconnex users who you are, if you aren’t comfortable adding a photograph of yourself, add an image that identifies you (make sure it is a photo that you have the rights to use!)
To add an avatar:
Click on your profile icon at the top right of the page, under the navigation bar. This will reveal a drop-down menu.
Select My Profile from the menu.
From your profile page, there are two methods to get to the same screen.
Either click on your avatar (this will be a grey silhouette if you haven't added a photo yet)
Click Edit on your profile tab, which brings you to the Edit Basic Profile screen.
Click Edit Avatar.
On the next screen, click Browse choose a file from your computer, then click Upload.
- If you need to, use the avatar cropping tool to make sure the image is cropped to your preference.
- Depending on your group membership, you may be able to add a badge to your profile.
Click Create your avatar (at the bottom of the page) when you are satisfied with the changes made.
