Changing Your Username

Good day everyone,

We have received requests from community members to have control over their username and I am happy to write that members have been given the ability to update their own username.  

If you would like to change your username, please update this setting within your profile:

  1. From your profile picture in the top menu bar: select My Settings
  2. Update your username and confirm by clicking "Change Username" in the middle of the screen

Please note, there is only one username view within PTC Community and changing it often may confuse other members.  Please choose a name you feel comfortable sharing with all community vistors.

Thank you,

Toby

Re: Changing Your Username

I'm noticing that changing the username doesn't change any existing @ mentions.  Do you have a way to do a find & replace on those?

Great question Tom - I will ask.

Good day @TomU

When a username is changed past mentions will not be forwarded.

Notifications for the old username are not deleted for that user.

Best,

Toby

Tried several times both ways. (Maybe I had a space at the end of my name or something.)
