Profile Photo

The Sedona Public Profile layout provides a default space for a photo. If you choose to make your profile public, you may choose to add a photo in your Sedona Profile Bio so that your public profile will have a photo.

Public vs. Private

You may change what is publicly available at any time. To remove all public information, return to the Public Profile screen in Sedona and delete the public URL character string. Even though the options below that field remain selected, there is no web address associated with your Sedona data. Therefore no one will be able to access your Sedona public profile

Share a Public Profiel
To share the link to your profile with others,  copy the Public URL on the Public tab that includes your character string.
