Can you guys reward users who complete their profiles by removing the box that says how complete their profile is?

Or can it be optional to have the Profile completeness box at all? It is in prime real estate and not useful to me or my group at all.



Hi Eugene and Thembi,

Sorry, as it stands today, the profile completeness box is not an option and cannot be removed.

Hi Celeste,

Thanks for your reply. Could it please be noted or put onto a list for a later edit? I don't see why people need to see a photo of themselves on each page, especially in the top right-hand corner.



Already noted Thembi.  After your post, we had some discussions about how we could utilize that space for future enhancements... we do agree it is prime real estate. 

My suggestion is for a "Status" type update section where a member can quickly post about what they are doing, upload a file, add a calendar event. 

Got it!  Thanks!


Have two new sites - a ning refugee - and I'm pretty happy with it all  except for that crazy profile box. Ridiculus waste of space, and I don't really want to see my own picture. Or what update I did recently. (I think I can remember that much)



We are also interested in removing the profile completeness box from the home page. As previously stated, it occupies very valuable real estate on the home page and there are several different modules that we would like to replace it with.  Has there been any effort to make this change?


I appreicate your help with this issue.

Hi Jake,

Yes, just recently (June 27, 2011), our CEO asked us to bump this up in priority. He also recognizes that it is prime real estate.

The plan is to treat this area like any other content module on the Summary Page with the ability to  delete and replace with another content module.  I do not have a time frame for this to be implemented, but the priority has been bumped.

I support this call and request for it to be implemented ASAP!


thank you!!

I agree wholeheartedly. 

I can't wait to see this change happen.

Thanks in advance for making it a priority! Smile

Oh, one more thing. ...it would be nice to see the ad box below the profile disappear too.

I agree!!! We need that spot for more important announcement/post. Really hope this will be possible very soon.

Well, how about just give the option to remove it totally, I mean, regardless if that's completed or not. You can just place this at "My profile settings" page (just a suggestion).

I vote for this as well.

Adding my vote of support for this change as well.

Adding my vote for the change too!

I would take it even farther than this.  Yes, the profile should go away when complete, but the administrator should be able to disengage the profile altogether.

At my site, some of the profile questions don't make sense to our use case and therefore never get completed.  In particular in my case:  key connections.   I ended up simply putting my wife in as a connection in order to complete my profile (hoping it would then disappear.)  Most of my users will never finish their profiles.

At the very least, as admin, I'd like to be able to move the profile to the bottom of the column.

I agree that the box should automatically disappear when it is complete. I think this is the best approach considering obtaining the member information is very useful as it relates to building relationships.

Having the option to turn it off for those members that get annoyed by it is great as well. However, we as GS Managers should probably be more proactive as it relates to customizing and/or eliminating questions that don't reflect the objectives of the Groupsite then the members would probably be more incline to complete their profile.

(I admit I'm guilty of this, but my site has not officially launched )Cool 

Hi Everyone,

I am just making sure that you are aware that the functionality to remove the "Profile Completeness Meter was added on February 16, 2012. We sent a system message to all Groupsite managers on February 16, 2012, but i have received a few messages that some managers deleted the message box in their Groupsite(s) before reading it:)

Here is a link to the FAQ with additional information.
