Updating Your Member Profile
Now it’s time to review and update your member profile. Your profile contains information that ODTUG has on file for you. Please review and update the information. Be sure to answer any required fields. Once you have updated your profile, click OK at the bottom of the screen.
You will now see your profile page. If you click on Edit Profile, you will be directed to the page you were just on. Click the ACTIONS button to reset your password.
On the right-hand side, you will see personal preferences or features for your account, such as My Page, My Subscriptions, My Calendar, etc.
My Page pulls information from your Member Profile. You can choose what profile information you wish to share with other users from My Page. Currently only your name and company can be seen by other ODTUG members. You can change what others see by choosing Edit Visibility Settings from the Actions dropdown box. In addition, you can add “widgets” to the bottom of your page to customize your profile. Widgets include links to blogs, Twitter, your LinkedIn profile, Flickr, etc.
You can also add or update your photo to My Page. From the Actions dropdown box, choose Update Picture. Click on Update File. Find the image you wish to upload on your hard drive and click OK.
My Subscriptions allows you to stay informed by joining discussions specific to the private committees and boards you participate in. Select the category and discussion that you are interested in. You can choose how often and in what format you would like to receive each forum post.
My Calendar allows you to see events and meetings for communities you are a member of or have marked as a favorite, and for any events that you have registered for and have specifically added to your calendar. You can also see the ODTUG Master Calendar of all upcoming events and meetings by clicking on the links Master Calendar Home, Current Month Master Calendar, All Upcoming Events, or All Upcoming Meetings.
My Favorites allows you to customize your page with your favorite blogs, community posts, and file library updates. Just go to the My Favorites link and click Add. You can choose how often you’d like these posts to be updated.
My Picture allows you to add a profile picture to share with other members.
My Presentations shows any conference, regional meeting, or webinar presentations uploaded to the ODTUG system that are associated with your member profile. These include conference presentations and webinars that you have uploaded yourself. Previously imported presentations will not be visible here.
