Hello,

Yes, normal users do not have option to change the username. 

But, admin can do that for you. 

Let me know if you need any help.

 

Thank you for using Power BI community!

Hi @Kinjal ,

 

Are you an admin because I would like to change my username?  If not, do you know how I would get in touch with one?  Thank you!

Hi,

 

Is it possible to change your email to e.g. an outlook mail?

Or to change your email when you change tenant.

So Let's say I changing jobs, will I lose all my contibutions history after I have built up that?

 

 

Thank you in advance for your answer

Hello,

  • You cannot change to outlook as only work/organizational accounts are allowed post SSO.
  • Changing email is not an option.
  • However, when you change jobs / tenant, you need to register with the Community using that new email address and share with us the profile URL. We will then map your current community profile to your new email address. You will not lose any of your contributions in this process. 

I hope this helps you. 

 

Thank you for using Power BI community!

@ta5656 Unfortunately, normal users doesn't have an option to update the username but the community support team can do. The only way to get it updated is by sending an email to the community support or admin and they will change it for you.
