Ask Ashley–Spring Cleaning Your "MyPage"

Since my last post, I have received many questions regarding additional features and uses of ToXchange. This month, our theme is going to be spring cleaning! As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, we are invigorated and much more likely to add things to our daily or weekly routines. Below are three areas you can “spring clean” to get your "MyPage" looking sunny!

1) Your ToXchange profile picture–As you know, in the past months I have been updating my profile picture and encouraging others to do so through a monthly blog article. Spring is the perfect time to update that picture with a fresh new photo!

Here’s how:

Go to your "MyPage:"

1) From the "My Options" drop-down in the upper right corner, select "MyPage."

OR

2) From your profile page, click on the "MyPage” button at the top of the "About this User" box on the right.

Update your picture!

First, be sure to know where your picture file is located so that you may easily browse and select it to upload.

A) On your "MyPage," click the "Actions" button and select “Update Picture.”

B) Click the "Update File" button and browse for the picture file on your computer. You may upload a file as large as 2 MB only (most photos are between 1.0–1.5 MB).

C) Click the OK button to upload your selected picture.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3! If you need assistance, just click on “Help” in the top right of your ToXchange page—OR—just write your question in the field provided and we’ll send a response to help you out.

2) Your contact information—By checking your contact information and updating as it changes, you help SOT to keep accurate records in ToXchange as well as in the annual Membership Directory. It also is beneficial to networking if other users wish to contact you. You can very easily update it at any time.

Here’s how:

A) From the home screen, select the red “Update Your Profile” button at the top of your screen.

B) On your profile page, click the “Update SOT Profile” button. This button is located at the top of your profile, as you can see from my page below.

C) Once at the “Update SOT Profile” page, select the “Edit” button.

D) You will now be brought to the "Personal Information" page where you can edit your name, address, and other contact information.

3) Your demographic information—Do you want other users to know a little more about you? Filling in the demographics fields is the perfect way to share your ethnicity, primary research area, and employment sector, to name just a few. 

Here’s how:

A) From the home screen, select the red “Update Your Profile” button at the top of your screen.

B) On your profile page, click the “Update SOT Profile” button. This button is located at the top of your profile, as you can see from my page below.

C) Once at the “Update SOT Profile” page, select the “Edit” button.

D) You now will be brought to the "Personal Information" page where you can edit your name, address, and other contact information. At the bottom of the page, click the silver “Edit Demographics” button.

E) Share as much or as little as you would like!

In the coming weeks, we will be discussing Member Search and widgets!

If you have any questions that you would like answered, please feel free to email me.

Until next time,

“Just Ask” Ashley
