As a member of Qlik Community, we encourage you to personalize your account by adding a Profile Picture and an Avatar image. Avatars appear beside your name when you post a question or participate in the community, and Profile Pictures appear when you hover your cursor over a name in the community. Adding a unique image helps to distinguish your posts from others, and allows other members to see a little bit of your personality.
How to Add a Profile Picture
Log in to the Qlik Community and open Account Menu
When you are logged in, click your name in the upper right corner of any community page to open your account drop-down menu.
From there, choose "View Profile" or "Edit Profile."
If you click on "View Profile," you will be taken to your profile page. On this profile, there is currently no Profile Picture.
To the right of where the Profile Picture would appear, click on "Add Your Photo" to add a Profile Picture or Avatar.
