Topic: Commons Help

 You may need to change your email address, update your password or wish to share a photo of yourself.  These are all features of the platform.  The Commons and its sub-communities are hosted on the edu1world platform.  The links in the outer perimeter of the browser generally span the platform.  Note the links in the upper left.

  These functions are all supported within "MyWorkplace".  There is a link to "MyWorkplace" in the upper left of all pages.

  - Select the 'Settings' tab



  - Locate the Admin module in the right side panel and select the corresponding link
    (the center display defaults to the 1st Admin function - "Change email")

  • Change password
  • Change personal photo

 

 

 

 

Change email


Topic: Commons Help

The "Change email" feature will allow you to change your user login email address.

For example, you may have been a member of the edu1world platform and your institutional email address may have changed as a result of a change in institutional email domain, or you may have changed your affiliation.  In either case, you would like to maintain your existing account with all prior associations to the articles you have contributed and your memberships and connections, assuming you are still granted those memberships.

After

- Selecting "MyWorkplace", and then the "Settings" tab

- And locating the Admin module in the right side panel and selecting 'Change email'

  • First, to confirm that you are who logged in, you must enter current email address and password
  • Then, enter new email address and re-enter it to confirm it was entered correctly
  • Press "Save"

 

 You should see a confirmation display.

 

  Done  (Back will return you to the starting point)

 

* Note: You may update your email notification email address separately.  You may most likely prefer to keep them in sync.  However, you may opt to process your emails from multiple sources in just one place, and this would facilitate that.

To Set your email address for email notifications:

  • Access "MyProfile"  from the top set of links
  • Scroll to "Contact Info"
  • Select edit for 'Contact Info'
  • Modify 'Work E-mail' field 
  • Press 'Accept' to process your changes

Topic: Commons Help

To change your password while logged in, you must affirm knowledge of the existing password.

    essentially verifying that you are the person that logged into this account.
  • Then, enter your new password and re-enter it to confirm it was entered correctly
  • Press "Save"
 

 You should see a confirmation display.

 
* Alternatively, if you have forgotten your password, and consequently cannot log in, you may navigate to a Commons community, or any community on the edu1world platform, and select the 'Login' link, and then the forgotten password link. The system will send a confirmation email to the email address associated with the account along with a link to reactivate the account, allowing you to reset your password.
