User Profile

Configuring your online appearance and profile in Loomio.

Your profile page lets you customise your Loomio identity. To visit your profile page select the Edit profile option in the user menu, at the top-right of your screen.

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 Change picture in the Picture section of your profile page. If you have a Gravatar you can set that as your profile picture by selecting Use Gravatar.

Update your personal info

You can update:

  • your name,
  • your username (your username is the name people will use to @mention you in comments),
  • your email address,
  • your introduction (a few lines to let other members know more about you),
  • your location (useful for distributed groups so people can get an idea of where others are)

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.
