Customize your personal LibChat profile image

When chatting with patrons, an avatar will display next to each message sent. For patrons, this will always be a generic avatar of a person. Chat operators, however, have a choice: they can either display that same generic avatar, or use the current image uploaded to their LibApps user profile. This gives staff the ability to add a personal touch to the chat experience and help patrons put names with faces.


Customizing your LibChat profile image

  1. To access your account settings, click on your email address in the orange command bar.
    • If you are a Regular user, you can also go to Admin > Account.
    • Or, if you are an Admin user, you can go to Admin > Accounts and edit your account from that page.
  2. On the Manage Account page, use the Profile Image options to choose the image to display.
    • Use LibApps profile image: this will use the image currently uploaded to your LibApps user profile. To customize this, click on the Go to LibApps button at the top of the page.
    • Use generic profile image: this will display a generic avatar of a person ().
  3. Use the Profile Image Background Color to select an accent color for your profile image.
    • If you are using your LibApps profile image, this will be used as a border color around your photo.
    • If you are using a generic profile image, this will be used as the background color of the avatar.
  4. Scroll down and click the Save button at the bottom of the page.
