Updating Your Contact Information

It is important to keep your profile up to date with your current contact information, to include cell phone number, email, Geographic Area, agency and unit. If you change jobs, units, or agencies, you do not need to request a new account. Instead, just update your contact information. If you experience a life change and want to change your login ID you can do that as well.

Keeping your contact information current is important for the following reasons:

Note: You must update your contact information in each system. Currently, the information does not replicate between the Training and Production.

To update your contact information:

  1. Login to the appropriate WFDSS application.
  2. Click My Home > Contact Information. The Home - Contact Information page appears with your contact information automatically populated.
  3. Review each field and make the appropriate changes.
  4. To receive text messages from WFDSS, identify your cell phone carrier, then click the link "Generate alternate address from Cell Number and Carrier". The Alternate Email Address field automatically populates with your phone number and and your email address ending. For example, 1234567890@vtextcom, appears as phone number 123-456-7890 for a Verizon wireless customer. The Cell Phone Carrier box defaults to <select> after you press the "Generate alternate address from Cell Number and Carrier" button.
  5. Verify that your geographic area, agency, and unit are accurate.
  6. Click Save Profile.

Your changes are saved in the database.
