Personal Information


To change your user's details, in the upper-right corner select your name > Settings > Personal Information.

Name, Phone Number, and Company Organization 

This information can be changed at any time and does not affect your billing account. The name identifies you in an Access List and in the document History. First name can be up to 32 characters and last name can be up to 64 characters. 

Note: When registering a new user account, first or last names cannot contain quotation marks.

Be careful when changing your account name. This may affect your ability to search for documents created or modified by your user account. For example, on the Advanced Search page, selecting the Me link will insert your account name into the search box. If your account name changed, Search will only find those documents that match the current name. 

If a user named Michael uploads a document, it will be labeled with Created by Michael. If Michael changes his account name to Mike and then selects the Me link when searching, Search will insert Mike into the search box. The search will not find his earlier document because they are labeled with Michael.  

Email Address

This email address is used for notification of changes in documents, ShareSpaces, or notes from other NetDocuments users. If you leave your firm, you still have access to your NetDocuments account and can change this email to your new email address for notifications. Although your account remains available, you will no longer have access to your prior firm's Repository and documents. 

Notify You of Events, Product Changes, and Special Offers 

This check box is clear by default. NetDocuments does not send spam or any other email that does not relate to the service itself. Select this check box to be notified of new releases, tips and tricks, and offers.
