    Your Profile - Account Fields

    The account fields on your Profile cannot be changed using your Qlik Community settings, because they are linked to your Qlik ID account. The account fields include Username, First Name, Last Name, and Email Address. In order to change or update any of these fields, you will need to contact our Customer Support team through the Support Portal.

    Account Classification

    Certain areas of the community or actions within the community are available to members based on their account classification, including but not limited to Customer, Partner, and Employee designations. Please be aware that account classification is tied to the account fields, therefore changes to your account information may result in changes to your community classification and access. For example, a Partner who changes their the email on their account from an employer's email to a personal email address (e.g. gmail) will lose the Partner classification.


    Edit Your Profile

    While in the Edit Profile mode, you can add more information about yourself in the "Your Profile" tab. If you feel comfortable, share a little about yourself with the other members of the community. If you have a blog or a website, add it as well so that others can check it out after meeting you in the community. After making any changes, hit the Save button at the bottom.
