Well-maintained user profiles are a great way to make Haiilo your digital home, because these profiles act as a digital business card in Haiilo: employees can fill out their personal profile themselves and thus personalize communication. This is a chance to get to know each other better and to network.
In his profile, each user with the permission "Manage user profiles" has the opportunity to fill in information about himself independently. This not only makes your Haiilo more personal, but also allows other users to find internal experts on specific topics by searching with the right information.
In the standard of Haiilo there are the following profile areas and fields:
- Job Title
- Current location
- Education / Degree
You can customize this selection of areas and fields yourself using Haiilo's Rest API interface. You can learn more about it here: Haiilo API: Edit and configure profile fields.
If you already maintain the most basic information about your users (e.g. department) in a user directory, which you also synchronize with your Haiilo, you can also synchronize the corresponding profile fields directly via the user directory. How this works, you will learn in these two articles: User Directory: Basics & User Directory: Configuring additional profile fields from the user directory.
Profile image & cover
Each user can upload a profile & title picture with the permissions "Access own profile" and "Manage user profiles". If a user does not have his own profile and/or title picture, Haiilo will automatically create a so-called avatar with the user's initials for the profile picture and the title picture will remain empty.
In order for all users to have optimal profile and title images, we recommend the following aspect ratios.
- Profile image: 1:1 (1000x1000px)
- Cover: 107:18 (2140x360px)
If you choose a profile and/or title picture that has a different format instead, that's no problem: When uploading, you'll get a zoom window. There you simply drag the section larger or smaller.
For display within the interface the images are converted to Haiilo Home. That means the profile image is cropped to 160x160px round at the end and the title image is cropped to 1184x197,33px across.
Can I fill in the user profile for another user?
Yes, in the moderator mode a user can fill in the user profile for other users.
Can I disable/delete individual fields in the user profiles?
Yes, you can also globally customize the individual fields in the user profiles via Haiilo's REST API interface. You can read more about this here: Haiilo API: Edit and configure profile fields.
Is it possible to read profile pictures from AD?
No, this option is not available. We have made the experience that on the one hand many customers do not maintain pictures in the Active Directory and on the other hand the users would like to have the possibility to use individual profile pictures. For this reason, no such feature is currently implemented or planned.
Can moving images be used in profile images and covers?
For the sake of Haiilo's performance and efficiency, moving images are converted to JPEGs during upload. Accordingly, title as well as profile images are always provided with a still image.
What is the maximum size of the profile and title picture?
The maximum image size is 10MB.
