Edit your profile

Help your colleagues learn more about you by completing your profile. As you fill out your profile, don't forget to upload a profile photo. Your photo makes it easier for your colleagues to know who you are in Slack. People can add the following to their profile:

  • Name recording 
  • Name pronunciation
  • Phone number
  • Time zone

Note: By default, the pronoun field is hidden in Slack profiles. If you can't see this option, find an owner or admin to ask for help.
