The central pane has two profile boxes. Both have an edit pencil to the top right of the text field where an admin can edit the profile.*



The upper Public profile is visible to all users. You can use this to add notes on the user such as their skill set, where they work from etc.

The lower Private notes field is only visible to owner company users. You could use this to add more sensitive information such as if they are difficult to work with or any issues that might arise from working with them.

Below the profile notes are the user’s global permissions and preferences. If you are an administrator or have the “Can manage people and Companies” permission you will be able to edit these permissions and preferences. Ordinary users from the owner company will be able to view the permission & preference settings but will not be able to edit them.

In the right pane of the page are some headline data such as active and archived Projects, active and completed Tasks, active and completed Milestones.

The activity graph shows some basic information based on the number of edits a user makes.
The Localization settings can also be edited from here by clicking on the edit pencil icon. *

* These options are only available to administrators and users with the “Can manage people and companies” permission.

Projects

The projects tab shows all the active projects that this user is assigned to.


You can click the star icon to the left of the project name to star or unstar the project. Click the drop-down triangle to the left of the project’s name to display a list of options.

The options are divided into two columns. The left column has a list of the sections that are enabled in that project. Click on any one to go directly to that section in that project. The right column has a list of edit options.

Tasks
