Bios & Preferences
What is my Bio and how to I edit it?
Your Bio is located in the Manage Profile area - just click on Edit Bio. Your Bio contains the information about yourself that you entered in your original GCLS Membership Application process or have recently updated during your Membership Renewal process. Much of your Bio information is available to be seen in the Member Directory, but you have the ability to control just how much of it is visible to the public and to other GCLS members.
You have the ability to control the privacy for ALL of your data with GCLS. Your data is presently set to the default settings. To change the privacy settings on your data, just click on the icon () to the left of the data field and select the desired privacy level. You may choose for example to have your email available to the public, but keep your phone number available to Members Only to avoid unwanted solicitations.
Please make sure you Bio is always up to date by reviewing the information upon membership renewal and at other times throughout the year.

What are Preferences and how do I manage them?
You can manage your Preferences in the Preferences section of the Manage Profile area. This is where you'll determine what types of notifications and emails you'll receive for various types of events or processes.
You can turn on and off notifications for such things as receiving a new Connection invitation, when people join Groups that you're a member of, when you receive a new ASPR message in your ASPR inbox, displaying your "Online Now" status so that people can do a live chat with you, whether you would like to see your Gamification points, etc. Just simply check the "On/Off" box next to each item to determine which notifications you would like to receive.
