How do avatar images on User objects work?

I’ve tried defining an image for the Avatar field under ‘Settings’ for the User object, but nothing happens. Does the image have to be of a certain size for it to work?

Hi Andy,

The ‘Avatar’ setting is a defunct and outdated mechanism which is in the process of being removed. So when you want to configure an image against a user record, you simply need to use an image property to set an image against a user.

I’m assuming you want to use this as a way of showing an image on the avatar dropdown within the interface? (the dropdown on the top right hand corner, where you can configure you settings, credentials or logout). If so, then you would need to use a themepack and design your own header which would pick up the image dynamically to achieve this.

I hope this helps clarify your query :slight_smile:
