The member profile page provides the single view of a community member and includes several types of data, including social bios, company, interests, activity in your community, and even data like preferred pronoun and t-shirt size.
First, we'll walk through the main profiles sections and the Timeline view, then look at the Detail view below.
- Bio info
- automatically pulled from GitHub, Clearbit, and Twitter
- Orbit Model metrics
- Orbit automatically tracks the Orbit Level, Love, Reach, and Points for each member
- click Edit to change the Orbit level
- Edit the member's bio info and Orbit Level
- Merge multiple members
- Merging profiles will combine timelines and tags into a single profile
- Timeline of your member's experience
- This includes automatically generated activities from our GitHub and Twitter integrations, activities from the Orbit API, notes you have added, and content you've saved to the profile
- Manually add an activity to the timeline

- Add tags
- Just click "Add tags," or hit "t" on your keyboard, to add tags to any member's profile. You can also add tags via the API.
- Topics and languages are added automatically based on the member's GitHub username
Now we'll explore the Detail view of the member profile:
- Key dates are saved automatically by Orbit
- Pronouns, birthday, and swag info are manually entered or added via the API
- Activity in your repos
- a count of Activities completed in your repos as well as a list of the repos the member has been active on
- Orbit Model stats are generated automatically
- The member's general activity on all of GitHub
- A list of the member's pinned repos
- A list of repos they have contributed to
Just click "Add tags," or hit "t" on your keyboard, to add tags to any member's profile. You can also add tags via the API.
Tip: You can filter the Member's page by tags. When tags are applied, search results will be constrained only to tagged members:
There are several ways to track important details about your relationship with a community.
Icons will indicate when a user's profile has contextual info attached:
New contextual info will also appear in a member's activity feed:
You can add free-form notes to anyone in your workspace:
- add notes from meetings, emails, or DMs so others on your team will have visibility
- include key points about the member's activity, like "Hosts the JAMStack Paris meetup" or "is a core maintainer on Next.js"
- New notes will appear in your workspace Activity feed
For many teams, it's important to keep track of relevant content generated by community members. The Content tab allows you to paste-in URLs of relevant content to save for future reference.
- when someone tweets about your product or community, add the tweet to the member's profile
- same thing for blog posts
- New content will appear in your workspace Activity feed
Sometimes you'll want to remove members from your workspace. They might be company accounts who have mentioned you on Twitter, GitHub bots that create a lot of noise, or maybe the person is just spammy.
To delete a member, navigate to their Member Profile, click the Delete icon and confirm.
When deleting a member, you have the option to block their identities. A blocked member will not get re-created if, for example, they mention your account or again, and will not influence calculated metrics like Love and Activities. This prevention of re-creating the member is based on the specific GitHub handle, Twitter handle, and/or email address attached to their profile (the identity). If members or activities are created in the future with any of the identities of the deleted member, they will be rejected.
To keep track of teammates but to hide them from the default views on most pages - e.g. Members, Activities, Reports, and Search - edit their profile as and select Teammate for the affiliation radio button.
Tip: You can still see teammates on those pages by changing the filters near the top.
