How to set up your profile in Slate

Profile Settings

In the top right corner of the Slate Homepage, you'll encounter a small circular person icon, which is your Profile. We do not suggest making many changes to your profile, there are a few options you have:

  • Add a personal Avatar (picture)
  • Toggle in-and-out of Beta UI (which is discussed in more detail below)
  • Adjust some settings, such as switching between light mode (first screen in the image below) and dark mode (second screen in the image below)

Two screenshots of the Slate interface; the top screenshot shows the interface in normal mode, the screenshot below shows the interface in dark mode.

Using Beta UI

Slate is currently working on improving its user interface, calling the new view Beta UI. The versions of the current interface and Beta UI are not drastically different, but we anticipate that the Beta UI may become the default user interface soon — so you may want to check it out. A few features include a wider screen and more detailed submenu options.

To switch to the Beta UI, follow the directions below:

  1. Select your profile icon in the top right-hand corner of the Slate interface
  2. In the dropdown menu that appears, select Toggle Beta UI

Screenshot of the menu that appears when a user selects the profile icon in the top right hand corner of the Slate interface. Toggle Beta UI is highlighted.

The change to your Slate user interface will be immediate and can be changed back to the classic view using the same directions above.
