Fill out your profile

We want to get to know you! You can either fill out your profile manually, or you can import some of the information from LinkedIn. Be sure to fill out your Job History, Education, and other areas—these will help your like-minded peers find you. Uploading a profile picture and a bio that show your personality is a great way to ensure that you make a good impression in the community.

Customize your email settings and subscriptions

Start by finding My Account in your member profile. From here, you can set up how you want to receive emails from the community, decide how much of your profile you want visible to other members, edit the signature that appears under your thread posts, and more. If you have any questions about what a certain setting means, please Contact Us for help. 

Helpful Tip:
We recommend subscribing to receive emails as a Consolidated Daily Digest—you will receive a single email each day summarizing the hottest topics in your communities.
You can also get emails in Real Time—perfect for the community's power users or anyone who likes up-to-the-minute alerts on what's going on.
