Edit your Personal Information & Upload your Photo on your Profile

In this article you will learn how to access and edit your personal information and upload a profile photo in your Elentra profile.

Access and edit your profile

To access your user profile do the following.

Step 1: In the upper right-hand corner of the screen, you will see your User Profile icon. Clicking on the icon will display a dropdown menu that will allow you to navigate to various features of Elentra, including your Gradebook, Assignments, Exams, Logbook, and more.

Step 2: To edit your personal information, click on My Profile.

  • The Personal Information tab shows your personal information such as your email address, phone number, address and profile picture.
    • On this page you can make changes to your secondary email address, phone number, and address.  If text is not editable, contact your institution's support team to request a specific update.
    • You can also view your photo on this tab. Elentra allows there to be two profile photos stored for each user: an official photo and a user uploaded photo. The official photo must be uploaded by an administrative user. If a user's account has both an official photo and a user uploaded photo, the official photo will be used first.
      User photos appear through out Elentra. Some examples include in People Search and when triggering or completing Assessment and Evaluation forms.

Note: If a user does not want their photo displayed in Elentra they can change their privacy settings in the user profile. If users select Minimum Profile their photos will be hidden from other users. To access your privacy settings click on your User Profile icon then click on Privacy Preferences.

Warning: A user can't delete his or her photo. They can upload a new photo to overwrite their existing uploaded photo.

  • The Additional Information tab shows your user name, private hash, pin, and date of last login. 

Upload Your Photo

Your official photo will be provided here by your institution.

Step 1: If you wish to add an unofficial photo, hover over the image icon and a blue button directing you to upload a photo will appear. 

Step 2: Click on the blue Upload Photo button. Drag and drop the image on the popup or click on Choose file to browse to the image on your computer and select it. Adjust the viewable area of the photo.

Step 3: Click Upload when ready to upload your photo.
