To get started with Google Currents, it is important to properly set up your user profile so that other users can find you and easily identify your position within the organization. In addition to setting up a custom profile picture and personal information, you can also customize the communities you are part of, giving you additional control over your Google Currents experience. In this article we will outline how to create and edit your Google Currents profile.
Why Update Your Google Currents Profile?
Updating your Google Currents profile is an easy way to enhance your networking potential within Google Workspace and provide users an easy way to see where you fit into the greater organizational hierarchy. By selecting communities, you can show others where you devote your expertise and interests, allowing greater potential for collaboration and team-building efforts.
Creating a Profile
Before you can start using Google Currents, you will first need to set up your user profile.
- In a web browser, navigate to currents.google.com.
- On the next page, login to your Google Workspace account.
- Once logged in, click Create profile.
The page will now prompt you to complete the set up of your profile.
Updating a Profile
If you decide to make changes to your profile after creating it, you can do so via the following steps:
- From the main menu, click Profile.
- Next, click Edit Profile.
- Now you can customize your profile by clicking on various icons.
Profile Picture – To modify your profile picture, click on the Camera icon to upload a profile picture.
Communities – To modify your communities, click Edit Communities to select which communities you are a part of.
Personal Info – To add to your personal information, click the exclamation mark next to the word Information.
- Once done, click Save to save your changes.
Modifying your profile can be done at any time from the Google Currents home page. We recommend using a profile picture that can be used to easily identify you, and choosing communities that reflect your interests and job-specific information. For example, a graphic designer may get more use out of communities that provide design advice or best practices for graphics formatting.
To enhance your Google Currents experience, consider setting up Google Chat to allow instant messaging communication between team members.
