View and edit your profile

Your profile is like an electronic business card you share inside your organization. Maintaining your profile is simple, yet it can reap big rewards because it communicates who you are, what you’re working on, and what you’re good at throughout your organization.

Profiles are now integrated with Delve, making it easier for you to access your profile information and a list of recent documents you’ve created or modified all from a single location.

Why can't I edit some profile settings?

Administrators determine which profile properties appear in your profile when they build the personal profile sites for your organization. Typically, administrators pre-populate certain profile details—such as your user name—with static information from a central database. You can't edit these details because they're essential for many other functions.

How do I keep certain profile details private?

Your profile contains information about you that people in your organization see when they visit your profile page. Some of this information is fixed by your organization and always shared with everyone, such as your name, title, department and manager.

Many fields, however, provide a menu in which you can choose to keep the information private by selecting Only Me Under Who can see this?

What are the guidelines for adding a profile picture?

You can upload a photo in one of these image formats: .bmp, .jpeg, or .png. An optimal picture size is 96 x 96 pixels.

How do I follow someone?

You can follow someone by clicking the Follow name link next to a post they've made in a Newsfeed or by clicking Follow in their callout in Search. For more information about how to follow someone, see Follow people to keep track of their activities.

Why can't I see if someone is online?

The online presence feature will be available in a future release.

Where can I find my Newsfeed?

If your company enables Newsfeed, you can access your Newsfeed by clicking the Newsfeed tile in the Office 365 suite navigation. If your company is using Yammer for Enterprise Social Collaboration, a Yammer tile will appear in the Office 365 suite navigation instead.
