PSC How-To: Update Your Avatar and Display Name
One of the best ways to be recognized in the Pega Support Center while authoring new content is to update your avatar and display name!
This creates a more personalized experience not only for you but for the other members here with us!
We did introduce our hover upon avatar to see your full name and details but at first glance it's always best to represent yourself as more than your default avatar and display name!
You might be wondering: Well, how do I personalize these details? Fret not because I will share the simple steps on how to update your avatar and nickname in under 5 minutes!
To update your avatar, follow these easy steps:
Starting here in the Pega Support Center in the top right:
Click Hello (Your Name) > My Profile
On the card you’ll see your name and to the left is the default person icon.
Click the pencil icon on the avatar placeholder
Click Choose File
Next drag the cursor to crop your image
Click Save once done cropping
Click Save to apply your new avatar to your profile
Back on your profile, hover over the 3 ellipses on the right and choose Edit Profile
While in edit view for your profile, scroll down and feel free to edit the rest of your profile:
- Project Availability
- About Me
- Twitter and LinkedIn Accounts
- My Experience
- Project Roles
- Pega Specializations
Then Save Profile
Once that is done, click on Hello (Your Name) > My Account Settings
Scroll down to the section Display Name
Enter your new Display Name in the box.
I always recommend using FirstNameLastName. For example, mine is MarissaRogers > no space.
In order for your new display name to take effect you will need to log out and log back in.
Then Save Display Name!
And that is it! It probably took me longer to write these steps than it will take you to make these changes!
If you have any questions, let us know!
