Your Profile

Configuring your online appearance and profile in Loomio.

Your profile

Your profile page lets you customize your Loomio identity. To visit your profile page select the Edit profile option in the user menu, which is found by clicking on your name at the top of the sidebar; if sidebar is closed, click on the menu icon () to open it.

Uploading a profile photo

When you first create a Loomio account, your initials will be the default image associated with your profile. You can upload a profile photo by clicking on your picture on the profile page. If you have a Gravatar you can set that as your profile picture by selecting Use Gravatar. You can also choose for Loomio to use the photo you use for other common platforms/tools.

Update your personal info

You can update your personal info by changing any of the following fields:

  • Your name
  • Your email address - this is the email address associated with your Loomio account, and where you will receive notifications from Loomio.
  • Your username - your username is a name people can recognize and alert you using @mention.
  • Your introduction - a few lines to tell others in your group know something about you.
  • Your location - useful for distributed or remote groups so people can get an idea of where you are located.

Language settings

Loomio is developed in English, but is translated by volunteers into many languages.

Loomio will detect your browser’s language settings, but you can manually set your preferred language from the profile page.

Resetting your password

You can change your password by visiting your profile page and clicking Reset Password.
