Let users change their photo and profile information
As a G Suite administrator, you can control how users edit their profile information.
Update profile editing
Use the Directory page settings to manage user profile changes. You'll need Services - Directory - Settings privileges to change these settings. Login as a Super Admin, Services Admin, or with a custom role with these privileges to change the settings.
From the Admin console Home page, go to Directory Directory settings.
- Click Profile editing.
Check Name to allow users to edit their profile name and nickname.
If you uncheck Name:
- user-modified names and nicknames are deleted, and reverted to the administrator-set names.
- customized user names created via aboutme.google.com have an admin-set name and a user-set name
The user-set name displays everywhere except on the user details page in the Google Admin console web UI.
You can no longer edit user names on the Settings page for Google+. Instead, use this Name field.
If you uncheck Photo, a warning dialog appears to show that user profile and cover photos will be archived. The actual photos that were used aren't deleted. They are preserved in the user's Photos Archive, but they are no longer used as their profile or cover photo.
The checkbox has no effect on the low-resolution photo set in Gmail.
Check Birthday to allow users to edit birthdays in their Google Account, and the Google+ upgrade flow for all non-Education domains. Education domains will not have this control available. For Education domains, birthday is never editable by end users except for in the Google+ upgrade flow, where it is always editable.
Note: If a user enters a birthday indicating they are too young, their account may be disabled.
Check Work location to allow users to change their work location. Users can edit their desk location in Calendar settings. For more information, see Set up room booking suggestions.
