How to update your profile avatar in Xchange

Blog Post created by bpugh Employee on Aug 4, 2016

When you're new to NFPA's Xchange, your avatar image (the little picture next to your posts) is auto-populated with a stock image from the platform. That's why you may be noticing a sports car, helicopter, bowling ball or some other random icon. Adding your own avatar and completing your profile (more on that later) is an important part of getting the most out of your Xchange experience.


Here's how you can quickly personalize your profile by adding your own photo. It's simple, and just a few clicks away.


1) Click on your current avatar in the upper right corner of your screen. On the dropdown menu, click "Edit Profile."




2) Then click on the "Avatar" tab, and "Add another avatar".



3) You'll be prompted to upload an image. Navigate to find it on your computer. After you find the file, click "Upload & Continue."



4) You can then crop the photo to your liking. You'll see a live preview of you avatar on the right as you edit the photo. Once you're happy with it, click "Crop Image", then "Finished."



That's it! You've now updated your avatar photo.
