I can see many members have started to change their usernames/screen names/alias to more friendly ones, which is great since it allows us to more easily recognize you when you post.


For those of you who still haven't done it (it's not very intuitive, so I really can't blame you ), I encourage you to do so, with the following instructions, it should take about 30 seconds!


  1. While logged in to the communities, on the top menu, go to Help, My Account:
  2. Click on "Edit Profile" and edit your "Screen Alias", which is your on-screen user name.Make sure to choose something that allows other members to easily recognize you. FirstName.LastName, or FirstNameLastName, or FirstName_LastName seems to be what most users choose and works just fine.
  3. For the change to take effect, you will need to log out and log back in (in some cases there may be a delay.)
  4. That's it! Now people will see your posts as coming from "Florian_Cheval" instead of "chefl02", much better ain't it?
