Gravatar

Gravatar is an external service that links your email address to an image of your choosing. Your Gravatar is an image that follows you from site to site. If you do not have a Gravatar, don't worry! We generate a temporary image for you based on your email address hash. Your email address remains private. Or you can create your own image via the Gravatar website.

Changing Your User Email Address

If you would like to use a different email address to access your Cloud Journals account, you can change it by navigating to Settings in the main menu. Locate where your email address is listed and click on the Edit button to the right. Enter your new email address and click Save. Follow the prompts in the email sent to your new nominated email address to confirm it.

Only when you have confirmed your new email address will it be changed in our system. You will not be able to log in with the new email address until you have confirmed the address change via the confirmation email.

Change Your Password

If you would like to use a different password to access your Cloud Journals account, you can change it by navigating to Settings in the main menu. Locate where your password is listed and click on the Edit button to the right. Enter your new password and click Save. You can now use your new password to log in to Cloud Journals next time.

Current Engagements

This is where the list of organisations that you are engaged to are listed. You must be actively engaged to an organisation to author new content of your own. You can only be engaged to an organisation at their invitation which you receive as an email from system@cloudjournals.com.au. You can be engaged to multiple organisations simultaneously.

If you are not engaged to an organisation, your account will revert to Contributor Only access. This means you won't be able to create new content or edit existing content you might have created when you were previously engaged to an organisation. However, you will be able to contribute to other users' journals once you have been invited to do so. Read more about Collaborating to learn how to do this.
