What is a Profile?

Your Profile contains information about you such as your name, picture, and contact information that can be seen by workplace members.

What information is made public?

By setting your profile to public, other members of your workplace will be able to view basic information about your account. This includes your:

  • Profile picture
  • Name
  • Email
  • Phone Number
  • Channels you are a member of

Setting your profile private hides all of the above information.

What is the advantage of having a public profile?

Workplace Member: Having a public profile allows Workplace Admins to view this information when you submit information on an interactive content item such as a reservation, purchase, or survey response. This includes validating your contact details, subscriptions, and receipts.

Workplace Admin: The information in your public profile makes it easier for Workplace Members to contact you regarding the channels and content you are responsible for.
