A Colorful Twist to Sitecore Content Hub: Changing Avatar Colors for Environment Indication

Welcome back to the Restaurant of Mistaken Orders, where we serve up a delightful mix of tech insights and fun. Today, we're cooking up a new recipe to help you navigate your Sitecore Content Hub environment with ease and style. 

The Problem with the Current Menu

If you're a regular at our restaurant, you're probably familiar with the Chrome plugin that creates an overlay to indicate different environments in Sitecore Content Hub. While it does its job, it's a bit like a dish that's too spicy - always in the way and overpowering the other flavors. 

A New Recipe: Colorful Avatars

We've come up with a new recipe that's subtle yet clear - changing your avatar color to indicate different environments. It's like adding a dash of color to your plate, making it visually appealing and easy to understand. 

Cooking Instructions

Here's how you can change your avatar color in Sitecore Content Hub:

  1. Click on your profile icon on the right side of the menu bar to open the Profile and Settings menu.
  2. Click on 'Profile'.
  3. On the left side of the page, click 'CHANGE AVATAR'.
  4. Upload a picture file with the color you want to represent the environment (green, orange, or red). You can do this by either dragging and dropping the file in the upload file area or clicking 'SELECT FILES' and browsing your filesystem to find the desired file.

Remember, this is your avatar, so feel free to get creative with it. You could use a simple colored square, or perhaps a fun icon or image that's predominantly the color you've chosen for the environment. 

Once you've uploaded your image, click 'SET AS AVATAR' to save the photo. And voila! You've got a colorful, environment-indicating avatar.

The Result

By changing your avatar color, you can easily identify the environment you're in without the need for an intrusive overlay. It's a subtle change that can make a big difference in your daily work, much like a pinch of salt in a dish. 

The Takeaway

In the bustling kitchen of Sitecore Content Hub, it's important to find ways to streamline your work and make your environment more user-friendly. Changing your avatar color is a simple yet effective way to do this. 

So, why not give this recipe a try? It might just add that extra flavor you've been looking for in your Sitecore Content Hub experience.
