I updated my profile picture from the generic standard icon.  Now when I join a ringcentral meeting my profile picture appears.  I can't seem to revert back to the standard generic profile icon.  How can I do this and remove my profile picture from Ring Central Meetings?

It appears that RIngCentralhas removed the Advanced Features menu selection in Settings (at least in my instance). That's  where you can edit your profile and delete the photo. I can't remove mine either.

Hey DH, do you use the RC (Glip) app? Also, could you show me where you changed your profile picture in Meetings? I've never done it so it would help me to understand :)

This is precisely my question :)  I changed my profile in the GLIP all and now it displays when I join RingCentral meetings.  I don't understand how that happened and would like to disable it.

AH! So, RingCentral Meetings and Glip now talk to each other - this is so that when you're on an RC Meeting, your Presence in Glip reflects that :) Which is a really nice feature. 

Because these two programs talk to each other, Meeting is pulling your profile picture from Glip. I'll see if it's something that can be changed but I don't think it is.

Thank you.  I'm one of several hundred in our organization that have a profile pic in Glip but the only one that has my profile pic appear in RingCentral.  There must be some setting that is enabling this

Hey DH, got some more info. At this time there's no setting in Meetings to update your Profile Picture. However, you can change it in Glip and that will update Meetings.

I have removed my picture on RingCentral Phone but it has not been removed from Glip. How can i remove it from there? It only gives the option to change it not remove it.

Hey Erica, you can't remove the profile picture in Glip - only change it to something else.

Erica,

Saadet is correct, but what you can do is create a blank JPG image in Paint or any other application that can create a blank image. You could also grab a screenshot of a blank area of a screen with something like the Windows snipping tool. You can then change the photo in Glip with this blank image.

I've attached a white blank image for you that you can download (It's white so click just below this).
