How do I tell other community members about me?

You can tell other community members as much or as little about yourself as you want. You can enter a short biography, your location, your interests, or anything else (within community guidelines, of course).

To tell other community members about yourself:

  • Sign in to your Community account
  • Go to your profile page by clicking your screen name
  • Go to My Community > My Preferences (see illustration above)
  • On the page that opens, select "Personal Information"
  • Enter information about yourself in the "Area of expertise" field. You can also enter your name, location, company info, and any other information you want to share.
  • Click "Save"

Note: By default, all community users can see this information.

 

To set your viewing preferences:

  • Sign in to your Community account
  • Go to your profile page by clicking your screen name
  • Go to My Community > My Preferences (see illustration above)
  • On the page that opens, select "Preferences"
  • Click through the various preference tabs and make the changes you want

Note: If there are two seemingly identical settings in a list of preferences, the first one listed is the community default for that item. If the community default changes, that setting will also change in your profile. If you do not want that setting to change, choose the identical one listed further down in the options. If you do this, should the community default change, your personal setting will not.

  • Click "Save" on each tab where you make changes
