My User Page

Important

The provided description covers fields and features that are default or commonly used. The actual set of available elements may vary depending on your role and other system settings.

When you log into OroCommerce, you can always find a link to your user page under menu below your username. This is a fast way to access your user profile, calendar, mailbox, and task list.

Explore Your User Page

There are a number of effective tools and actions available on the page of your user profile, from configuring your personal profile to generating an API key for third-party applications. In particular, from the page of your user profile you can:

  1. View your full name, avatar and system information such as status, login count, date and time of the last login.

    • The first status shows that your are granted rights to use the system. The second status is called an authentication status and shares the state of your password. As you can see your user page only when you are logged into the system, you will always see Enabled as the first status and Active as the second one. When an administrator views your page, they will able to see the values of your statuses.

    • You can also check which business unit owns your user record. Click on the owner name (e.g. Main) to open the page of the corresponding business unit. If you are logged into the organization with global access (i.e. technical organization that aggregates data from all organizations created in the system), then in brackets you will see the name of organization that owns the user.

    • You can also see who, how and when modified your profile by clicking Change History link.

  2. Access user-level configuration options.

    In particular, you can set up localization, language, display settings, update email configuration details, provide MS Outlook integration and synchronization settings details, as well as configure customer-visible contact information in the storefront. Read more about the available settings in the relevant User-Level Configuration section of the documentation library.

  3. Edit your user profile.

    To update the details of your profile, click Edit on the top right on the page. On the edit page, you can update your credentials, change the password, upload a new avatar, and update email details.

    • In the General Information section, you can view the details of your profile, create an API key, and download the latest MS Outlook add-in.

    • In the Activity section, you can see the emails you sent and the calls you logged. If a user mentions you as a context for their activity, this activity also appears on the list. See the Activities topic for more information on activities available in OroCommerce.
