How do I edit my profile?

 

When first creating your monday.com account, you'll see your initials placed on a colored background as your profile picture. However, we believe that adding a profile photo of yourself and customizing your account profile can really help your team to identify you quicker and get to know you better! 😊

Note: Pending users who have not accepted their invitation will have a standard avatar image as their profile picture. If they accept their invitation, their initials will be shown instead until they upload their own picture.

 

How to upload a profile picture

  • Step 1: Click on your profile picture (or initials) on the bottom left of the screen. From the resulting menu, select "My profile":

Customize your profile picture color

If you prefer to keep your initials as your profile picture rather than adding your own image, you can definitely do so. You can also now customize the backdrop color of your initials as you wish! To do this, if you currently have a photo added as your profile picture, you will first need to remove it:

Default fields in your profile

By default, everyone can add the following to their profile: a name, title, email, phone number, location, timezone, birthday, work anniversary, and Skype username. To edit any of these fields in your profile, simply hover over the field and click.
These options cannot be removed from the profile. However, the admin can arrange the order that these fields appear in by navigating to "Admin" > "Customization" > "User profile":
