I'm happy to introduce a small yet highly requested feature: Custom profile pictures for all users and teams!
Here's how it works:
Log in to your account on our web UI. On desktop, the workflow looks like this:
As every other feature on our platform, it's mobile-ready:
As you can see, we make it easy to fetch your existing profile picture from GitHub, Twitter, as well as picking a file or uploading it. Under the hood, we use the same APIs Now uses to synchronize deployment sourcefiles and static assets.
This means that, if you've uploaded the same avatar file (same content and avatar.png as a name) on a deployment already, it won't be uploaded to our service again.
If you don't specify an avatar in the interface, we continue to fetch them from Gravatar as a default. The changes are already live on this site and the latest version of Now Desktop.
