There are four key settings that you can change through My Profile:

  1. Email display - Set who can see your email address.
  2. Email digest type - This setting determines how many emails you will receive from forums in the unit. The available options are:
    • No digest - Individual email for every forum post.
    • Complete - Daily email with full forum posts.
    • Subjects - Daily email with forum subjects only. Select this option for one summary email per day, rather than an individual email every time something happens on a forum.
  3. Forum tracking - Select Yes: Highlight new posts for me so that the posts you have not read yet in the forum are highlighted. This improves forum navigation.
  4. User picture - The default picture is a profile icon. Why not upload an image that represents you?
