Updating your name and profile picture

Return to top

    Hello, my profile picture shows fine in Support and on my Profile page, but it shows as a broken picture in Zendesk Talk.  I've removed and uploaded the picture multiple times.  How can we fix this?

    Hello @...,

    This could be due to the dimensions of the image you are using, which can cause these types of issues to occur. I would recommend using an image with a 1:1 aspect ratio that is not smaller than 80x80 pixels.

    Best regards.

    I’m unable to fix a typo in my username. I’m admin/owner of the account, but when I try to fix it on my user profile, there is no button to save the change, and when I try to navigate away, it prompts me to “keep editing” or “discard changes.” Any ideas? Thanks!

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks for writing in! May I ask if you are still unable to update your user profile up to this time? You will just navigate and click away from your user profile. That should save your new user name. Have you tried using another browser or clearing your cache & cookies and see if you can easily update your user name? Thank you!



    How does Zendesk define first name and last name when there's no clear distinction (just click on the name to type in the fullname)?

    How does that impact placeholders like: {{ticket.assignee.first_name}} ?

    Hi NGUYEN HUY Hai,
    The behavior of these placeholders are discussed in User Data Placeholders.

    Note: The behavior of the first name and last name placeholders depends on the formatting of the name on the profile. For example, if you use the name Dutch van der Linde, the placeholder user.last_name will show 'Linde'. If you use the name van der Linde, Dutch on the profile, then the placeholder user.last_name will show 'van der Linde'.
