Profiles

Your profile is a reflection of you and the work you do, so you're going to want to update it to showcase your work. This is where you can edit the information other LabRoot members see about you. You can customize your profile by adding a photo, listing your work experience and expertise, and adding information about your research. You can even upload videos, manger your subscriptions and edit privacy setting from your profile.

Once you're logged into the LabRoots site, you only need to click on your profile picture or avatar in the top right corner of any page of the LabRoots site to reach your profile page.

From there you can click on each category you wish to edit. Each editable section will have a small pencil in the top right corner. By clicking on the pencil icon, you can edit or add to your name and title, summary, contact and other information, education and experience.

Don't worry about your Virtual Events and Webinar, those will update automatically as you register for each event. You do, however, have the option to hide your virtual event and webinar attendance, in their respective tabs. The Video tab will show you the videos you've uploaded to the LabRoots site.

You can also manage your newsletter subscriptions from your profile. When you click on the Newsletter tab, a list of all of the LabRoots newsletters will show, the ones you subscribe to will be in green. Simply check or uncheck the newsletter you'd like to receive.

We understand that your privacy is very important to you. By clicking on the Privacy tab, you will see a list of options regarding what information from your profile is visible to other users, and what remains private. The options you select will be green; simply check or uncheck the privacy settings you wish you apply to your LabRoots account. Once you've made the desired changes, click "Save" and you're on your way!
