A community is active and alive based on its membership and participation. Your first step should be to help other community members easily learn about your experience, skills and interests by updating your profile. Member profiles appear in search results, and the keywords contained in profiles help members find and reach out to each other.


To set up your profile:


  1. Find the drop down next to the GreenCircle avatar on the right of the main menu bar (to the left of the pencil icon) and click on it
  2. From the menu that appears, click on Edit Profile in the first section
  3. Notice the three tabs:
    • Avatar & Photos - while optional, we recommend that you can an avatar that will appear when you post (check out the opportunity to get a custom "south park" style avatar by participating in the community and earning points) and a picture that appears in your profile card - pictures help people connect - see more here How to Add an Avatar to Your Green Circle Community Profile
    • Your Profile - this is where you can update elements of your profile -
    • Privacy - you will be able to choose who in the community has access to specific components of your profile - remember that the more you share, the easier it will be to connect with others in the community
  4. Fill in as much information in your profile as you feel comfortable. There are a few required (marked), but the rest is up to you. Please include information about your professional roles or interests that will help you connect with community members
  5. Click Save
