Customize your Buzz experience

To access your user settings, click the User Menu and select Settings.

Settings is broken into two tabs.

The Profile tab

The Profile tab includes:

  • A Name field.
  • An Email Address field where you can verify that Buzz is using the correct email address; if your district or organization allows you to change your email address, you can do so here. 

  • Profile Picture: You can select a new profile picture here if your district or organization allows it.

The Preferences tab

The Preferences tab includes:

  • Sidebar Navigation: Choose your prefered Activities tool layout from two options:
    • Full View shows the course tree structure in the sidebar when you open folders.

    • Simplified shows only the contents of the folder you’re in. 

  • Privacy: Some course authors use LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) to integrate external applications, like, to enhance your experience. You can choose to hide your email and/or name from these external websites by checking the appropriate boxes.
  • Accessibility: Choose to:
    • Turn on additional visual indicators if color indicators are not effective for you.
    • Disable application animations if they are not effective indicators for you.
  • Hide scores in sidebar navigation and activity stream: When this box is checked, Buzz displays a checkmark next to completed activities instead of the score. Check this box if you want to hide your scores when working in public spaces.
  • Hide excused items: Use to control the visibility of excused items.
  • Hide text in toolbar buttons: Check this box if you want to save space when using smaller screens.  
  • Hide navigation icons when menu closed: Checking this box hides your Main Menu icons until you click its icon.
