In this blog, I want to give you an overview and some information about User Profile.The user profile is used frequently throughout the application, for instance, to make it simple to identify the individuals taking part in a discussion. In addition to the display name and ID, the user profile picture appears when you choose a user in any dialog, such as when you assign a manager to a user on the Users management page.


You may also view the whole user profile to learn more about the individual in the following areas:


1. Each conversation participant's name and photo appear in the Collaboration panel. You can view the complete profile and initiate a one-on-one conversation with the user by hovering the cursor over their image.


2. In the Event area, the user whose photo is associated with an event or a task is shown in those details. The profile of the user who needs to review a task, for instance, is displayed.


3. By clicking on the user's ID in the Users section of user management, you may view the whole profile.


Making a new user's basic user profile


A system administrator must enter at least a user ID, the user's first and last names, which appear automatically in the user profile, when creating a new user in the user management section.
