Add relevant information to your Lano profile to make it easier for your clients to find you

In order to make the most of your Lano account, you need to complete your profile information and ensure your details are always up to date. Please note: Editing your profile is especially important when your clients use Lano.

Step 1: Click on your profile picture next to your name in the top right corner and choose "Edit Profile".

Step 2: This will lead you to the page with four editable sections: Profile, Additional info, Social media, Notifications.


It is easier for your clients to find you if you add a profile picture to your account. Simply click on the avatar in your profile and upload a picture. You can also edit your email, name, preferred language and your password. Please note that you need to contact support@lano.io to change your email address.

Additional information

In this section you can add certain information that will be visible to your employer. To give more information about yourself, you can adjust your personal information, describe yourself, add your main skills and working experience.

About me

In this section, you can add a few lines about yourself, e.g. describing your professional qualifications and your previous work experience. Select "Use default setting for all clients" if you want your text to be visible for all your clients.

Please note: If you want to have different profiles for different clients, you can set these specific settings directly in your client's profiles.


Add different skills or special areas of expertise. This will make it easier for your clients to find and add you to their network.

Work experience

You can also add previous work experience to your profile. This is accessible for your clients, if you directly work with them in Lano.

Social Media

You can optionally add your social media accounts and/or website to your profile by clicking on the middle tab "Social Media".

This allows your clients to connect with you outside of Lano and to access even more detailed information about your work, e.g. in your digital portfolio or CV.


You can individually select what type of notification you wish to receive for which action. Choose between being notified by email or directly in your Lano account. Simply check the boxes, to choose a type of notification.
