Once you create your account, you may find that you need to update some of the information you provided in your Profile upon registration. Or, you may want to change some of the information or privacy settings available there.
User Profiles are a useful way to learn about others in the CUNY Humanities Alliance community and to share information about yourself with other members. Providing up-to-date details on your Profile can help to foster collaboration on the website.
In this guide, we will show how to edit your Profile to ensure that you have the details you want to be available accessible to those in the CUNY Humanities Alliance community.
Step 1 — Login to Your Account
If you are not logged in already, be sure to type in your Username and Password in the fields provided on the right-hand side of the website, as shown in the screenshot below.
With those details entered, you can click the “Log In” button in order to login to the website.
Step 2 — Access Your Profile
Once you are logged in, you will see your Username on the right-hand side of the website, where the login fields used to be.
When you see those details, you can select the link for your name (in the example below it is “Lisa Tagliaferri”).
When you hover over your name, you will see it highlight in blue as a hyperlink. Click on the link
When you click on the link you will be taken to your User page.
The User page will show your recent Activity, along with Profile, Messages, Friends, etc.
From this page, you can click on the “Profile” link, which will be under your User image.
Upon clicking this link, you will see your current Profile page, with the fields that you had originally filled out when you registered for the CUNY Humanities Alliance site.
From this page, you will be able to edit your Profile.
Step 3 — Edit Your Profile
From your Profile page you can click the “Edit” link in order to edit your profile.
Once you click on “Edit” you will be taken to a page with several fields similar to the fields you encountered upon signing up for the CUNY Humanities Alliance website.
From here, you can modify each field with new or different details than what you previously had.
Step 4 — Adjusting Privacy Settings
On the CUNY Humanities Alliance website, you are empowered to use privacy settings that work best for your personal needs and desires. In order to accommodate each user, many of the fields can be adjusted for various levels of privacy.
In order to adjust your privacy settings, click on the “Change” button under the field that you would like to adjust privacy settings for.
When you click the “Change” button, you’ll see new options available to you.
You will be prompted with “Who can see this field?” and you will have the following options to choose from:
- Everyone — this selection means that this field is viewable to the public, that is, anyone who can access the CUNY Humanities Alliance website
- Only Me — this selection means that only you and the site administrators will be able to see this information
- All Members — this selection means that only registered members of the CUNY Humanities Alliance will be able to view these details
- My Friends — this selection means that only those you designate as “Friends” among the members of the CUNY Humanities Alliance website will be able to see this information
For each field that has this option, you will be able to choose which field is right for you.
Step 5 — Saving Your Profile
When you are satisfied with the information you have entered in each Profile field and the privacy settings you have selected, you can click the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the form.
Once you click the button, you will be taken to a confirmation page that will show you the details of your profile along with the privacy settings you have designated for each field.
If something doesn’t look right, you can edit from this page and click the “Save Changes” button when you are done.
