Updating contact information

Keep your contact information up-to-date to ensure that people can get in touch with you.

Before you begin

The information in your profile comes from the organization's personnel directory and, because different directories store different information, the fields that are displayed in your profile might differ from the default fields listed below. In addition, your administrator can automatically fill in a field to prevent you from having to fill it out. The administrator can also set a field to be read-only if it collects information that is not relevant to your organization.


To edit your contact information, complete the following steps.

  1. Click Edit My Profile on your My Profile page. Alternatively, select Profiles > Edit My Profile from the product navigation.
  2. Click the Contact Information tab.
  3. Edit the content of any of the following fields.
    Note: Your administrator can set specific fields to be read-only so that, depending on your deployment, you might not be able to edit all the fields listed below. For example, you might not be able to update your name or your email address if those fields are set to be read-only. If your contact information has changed and you cannot edit the information yourself directly from Profiles, contact the IBM® Connections administrator to advise them about the updated information.
