My Account

  • Email address (Required) This is the email address you use to login.
  • Hide My Email Address If you do not want your email address displayed, you can choose to 'hide' its display from other Participants. You cannot delete your email address from the form, but this will keep it from being displayed anywhere on any GroveSite website you use. In general, GroveSite discourages this because it hinders collaboration among the group. If you hide your email address, you will still be able to receive Broadcast email from your group's moderator or admin.
  • Participant Group Membership If you are part of a group(s). The group(s) names will be displayed in this area.
  • New password/Confirm password If you want to change your password, type the new password in the 'New Password' field. Then type it again in the 'Confirm Password' field below.
  • Password Requirements This area describes the password restrictions that are in place for your group. A new password must meet these requirements to be saved.

Click the Save button on the bottom of the form to save your changes.

My Profile

  • First name and Last name These fields may have been entered by the person who enrolled you in the website. You may edit or delete them.
  • Display name (Required) If your first and last names were entered during enrollment, GroveSite uses them for your Display name. If they were not entered, GroveSite uses the first portion of your email address, up to the @ symbol. You may change the Display name if you wish. The Display name is displayed when you post discussions or upload files.
  • Title, Company, Phone, Address This information, if you enter it, is displayed on a Participants List page, which lists all people enrolled in your group's website.
  • Bio Enter any biographical information you wish about yourself. This information is displayed if another member viewing the Participant List page clicks on your Display name.
  • Picture If you like, you can upload your photo. Use the Browse button to locate your photo file on your computer/network. Files must be .jpg or .gif format and less than 50Kb. GroveSite will resize them to be 100 pixels wide. Photos are displayed on the Members List page.

Click the Save button on the bottom of the form to save your changes.

Hide My Name: Delete the names in the First Name and Last Name fields and just enter a Display Name. This is similar to a screen name.

New Flags

GroveSite uses this setting to flag new content (discussion postings, files, tasks, and so on) so it is easy to see when you are viewing any webpage. If you only login to the site about once a week, check 'one week.' Anything posted by another person in the last week will be marked as new. In addition, your site may be set up to flag new content on regular web pages, as well. If so, your setting (1 day, 3 days, etc.) will be used to highlight new content with red flags.

Customize Dashboard

By default all boxes will be selected; however, you can customize by unchecking any options that you do not want displayed on your dashboard. Choosing 'Display in left pane' is especially useful if you are a member of many sites. Your Dashboard will be displayed on the left side of your screen when you click on the 'My Dashboard' menu option. When you click a site name, an upcoming task, or a recent activity post, the right side of your screen refreshes to show you that site/page.

Email Recent Site Activity

The Email Digest summarizes the content that has recently been added to your sites. Simply choose None, Daily or Weekly as your preference for receiving your Email Digest. Daily emails are generated at 5 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). Weekly emails are generated on Monday mornings, at 5 a.m. EDT. This way you'll have a fresh summary waiting in your inbox when you start your day.

Each Email Digest contains links to the site/page so that you may view the full information, open the file, update or comment on a task. If you are not already logged in, you will see a login page first, then GroveSite will display the new information.

If your sites have not had any new activity in the last day or week, you will not receive an email.
