Getting Started:

To make the most out of the chat, please update your display name. The display name is your identity on APAN and it is very useful to identify who is gathered in the chat room. 

Instructions to update your Display Name:

  1. Navigate to your dashboard by clicking on "My APAN"
  2. Next, click on Community Settings. This will prompt a screen where basic information about the user can be added.
  3. The first field [NAME] is for the user's name as it will be displayed throughout APAN. It does not change the username you use to log in to APAN.
  4. Click Save before exiting to save your changes.
