Create your own user avatar

Your avatar
For many users who work in large or distributed team, it is beneficial to create an avatar that includes your photo. Your avatar will be visible to your teammates on tests you create, tests you edit, and test failures you categorize. By default, we'll use any Gravatar associated with your email address. 

Change your name, email and Password

Your name
You may update your name.  Please note that this should be your professional name or what you are known within your organization.  This name is referenced in emails, reports and also on the individual tests and results.

Your email address
Please note that changing your email address will end your current setting so that you can log back in with your new email address. 

Changing your password
You may change your password on this page as well (please note Password change is lower down on the page).  You must enter your current password and your new one.

Set your timezone Preferences

Timezone preferences
Please ensure your timezone is correct and change it if it is not. The timezone you select will control the time stamps visible to you throughout the application.   

Enable Colorblind mode

Accessibility -- Enable colorblind mode
Rainforest uses colors that will be difficult for those that are color blind (such as green and red). Please enable this mode to change the color scheme.  This will update for only you and not the entire team.
