Getting profile changes to "stick"


Noting Paul Breneman’s earlier problems setting location etc., how does one tell the profile page to actually take note of a change of username, location and so on? I’m logged in using an email address rather than via a Facebook etc. account, but /surely/ the whole point of a project like this is not to require the services of some third party?

I’m trying to do an initial demo of Mycroft to a non-geek, and would really like to convince it that it’s not in Kansas any more :slight_smile:



Thanks for your feedback, @MarkMLl

This aspect of our UI has garnered many swear words internally over the the last few weeks, and I apologise that it’s not more intuitive. There are two places that location information is stored;

  • In the Profile settings link
  • And in the settings for each Device (each device has a unique link)

You need to ensure that the device location is set.

Please let me know if this doesn’t make sense.

PS we’re going to be refreshing the UI soon :slight_smile:


It makes lots of sense, but I can’t see an “OK” button etc. on the profile page and while going to e.g. the password setting page /temporarily/ shows a changed (e.g.) username I can’t find anything to actually commit it.
