Hub 2022.3 Help

Managing Your Profile

All registered users in Hub have access to their own profile page. Your profile is where store information about yourself and manage your account. To access your profile, click the avatar in the header and select the Profile link.

The amount of information you can see on this page is based on the permissions that are granted to your user account. For example, if your account is assigned the default Observer role, you only see the General settings tab. Users who are assigned the default System Admin role can view and update any user profile setting for any user account in Hub.

For more information about updating profile settings for other users as an administrator, see Update User Profiles.
