Update your personal info

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

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

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.

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