“I’ve been invited to Sunlight, now what? Is there a place where I can find all my basic information? Where can I change my name? My email?” These may be some of the questions you are asking yourself and the answers are found in your profile. But first, how do I get there?
All you need to do is go to the sidebar and click on your profile image at the top left corner to open your account menu. When it pops up, click on “Your profile.” When you’re there, scroll down and you’ll find the section called “Settings.”
One in here, you’ll find:
This is where you’ll be able to add or edit your information. It’s divided in the following:
About you: all your basic information is contained here (full name, email address, language, short bio, profile image and banner image).
Main address: your address and phone number are here. The first one is optional but, in the case of your number, you’re required to add it and update it; this is to comply with 3D regulations. Learn more about this regulation in our article “About 3D Secure”
Spending & currency: this is where you can change the currency that you’ll use when creating requests on Sunlight. For example: if your company has GBP as their currency but, you’re located in the US, you can change to USD so that your budget is shown in this currency.
Change your password: do you want to create a new password? This is the place to do it. Simply add your current password, create a new one, repeat it and save it.
To learn about how to change your personal details included in this section, feel free to read our article “Changing Your Personal Details.”
Next, we have the “Notifications” tab, which concerns all the notifications and emails we send you. You can enable or disable notifications for requests you could approve, notifications of new Sunlight sessions and balance reminders.
Skillsets & Interests
After, we have the “Skillsets & Interests” tab. Here’s where you can add and see the subjects and roles you’re interested in or that others want you to learn, more specifically, you’ll see the following:
Your skillsets: this is related to the role you have in your company and your company admin is the one who assigns it on our platform. Sunlight will use what’s added here to recommend related resources that other people have purchased or enjoyed.
