Hi @[deleted] -- looks like you haven't completed all the items yet. What are you missing?

@Duncan Muchiri, looks like you figured it out but for the future it's View profile > Edit profile.

@Eric Wersel I like the idea! No current plans for this, but we have a community Jira if you'd like to submit it as a suggestion.
