How to Set Up Your Profile... 

Click your avatar on the bottom of the lefthand sidebar and choose "My Settings" 

Then select My Profile from the left hand side bar.

The Basics 

 Start filling out your basic information! Here’s quick what’s what...

  • Profile URL - this is the slug that you can attach to the end of your drift account to bring you to your page
  • Title - enter your role at your company here
  • Location - enter where you are located
  • Short Bio/Quote - will show up on your profile
  • Profile Privacy - determines whether or not your profile is public to the world or not
We STRONGLY recommend setting your URLs once at the beginning of your profile setup and never touching them again.
Your name and email is taken from your Account page
