During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

Old UI

Admins can enable students to choose a profile picture from pre-approved avatars.

  • Recommended file type: PNG or JPG (Buzz converts all files into PNGs)
  • Ideal size: 300px x 300px (Buzz automatically resizes images, so uploading images smaller than 300px x 300px may reduce quality)

To upload avatar images:

  1. Open Settings in the Domain toolbar.
  1. Select User Options and click Add under Avatars.
  2. Browse to the resource folder in which you want to save your file or create a new folder for it by clicking the plus sign.
  3. Click Upload, click Choose File, find the image file on your computer and click Upload. Note that you can give the file a name other than the filename if you want.
  4. Click the file and click Select.
