Changing Profile Name:

To change your name (what you are going by in your community), go to Profile (screenshot below) and then enter the desired name in the 'Name' text box, then click 'Save Changes'.

Note: For SSO communities, the ability to change the profile name will depend on if it is enabled by the SSO provider.

Change Profile Image:

You can also change the profile image from the 'Profile page' itself. The following are the steps to achieve it.

 1. Navigate to the 'Your Avatar' section on the profile page.
 2. Under 'Upload new image' browse the file from your computer or simply drag and drop it in the area and click on the 'Upload' button. The chosen image will appear beside the earlier images.
 3. Click the image you want to set as your avatar. ( A blue outline will be seen around the chosen image) Save the changes. 

IdeaScale also integrates with the global avatar provider: Gravatar.
Gravatar will populate the avatars of users in IdeaScale if the user’s email addresses match in both Gravatar and IdeaScale.  A user can always change their default avatar in IdeaScale within their Profile page.

The admin of the community can also disable the 'Upload new Image' option by disabling it from Community Settings >> Customization >> Customize Site Behavior >> User Profile Screen >> Allow Members to upload profile pictures.

When we disable this switch the message in blue in the Profile section will disappear.

Please Note:
 1. By default the profile name is taken from the user email address.
 2. For Single Sign-on enabled communities where the SSO service provider does not supply an avatar image, IdeaScale allows members to upload/change their own avatars. However, if the service provider supplies an avatar image IdeaScale will use the supplied image, and members will not be allowed to change the supplied image. We do not allow SVG images
