Set up Your Profile

Setting up your profile is the first step to participating in EngineerZone.

Your user profile provides community members with an easy way to learn about your experience, skills, and interests. Your profile shows up in search results when community members search for keywords contained in your profile. You can update your information at any time.

To set up your profile:

  1. Click the arrow next to your avatar in the upper right corner and then click Edit profile.
  2. Click the Profile Details tab. Fill in as much profile information as you like. We urge everyone especially, ADI employees and ADI representatives to fill out the "Title", "Expertise" and "Biography" sections. Note that your profile will be found when people search, so if you have professional roles or interests that would be useful for others to know about, be sure to include them. You may not be able to edit certain fields, such as user name. Usually the community manager sets up these fields for you.
  3. The Avatar & Photos tabs are where you change your photo and avatar. Click on Add Photo and choose a picture to upload. You will be asked to crop your photo. You may also choose to make your new profile picture your avatar, please click YES to change your avatar or FINISH. - Your photo is a great way for people to "meet" and recognize you in person. We encourage everyone especially, ADI employees and ADI representatives to upload a photo and make that photo their avatar. Your avatar lets community members quickly associate your comments and status updates with a simple visual cue. We also have over 80 unique avatars to choose from.
  4. Click Save.
