How do I change the color of my letter avatar?


Hello Team 

I understand that we cannot change the colour of our initials avatar for our members however when new members are invited they have now have a colour whereas all our previous members do not.  

If I invite the previous staff again will that delete them of all the current cards?

thanks in advance for anyone answering this question.

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all safe and well!

I came here to say that now it’s possible to change the avatar color and initials directly on your profile.

To use this new feature, please, access your profile on

Click on your Avatar > Create initials avatar.

There are seven different colors and you can use up to four characters.

Hi Annie,

welcome to the Atlassian Community!

By looking into the Suggestions I found out that the changing of the colors of the Avatars is not something that is planned any further:

If your current data is affected depends on if you are deactivating or deleting users:

  • If an organization admin deactivates a user’s account, the user’s personal data will remain in Atlassian account services, and the admin can reactivate their account at any time.
  • If an organization admin deletes a user’s account, we’ll delete the user’s personal data from Atlassian account services, and no one will be able to reactivate their account.

Please also kindly refer to documentation for further information:
