Personal settings

The personal settings pages in Datadog allow you to control how you appear to others in your organization, switch or leave organizations, and manage your notification preferences.


Your profile is how others in your organization recognize you in Datadog. Set or update your name, email address, and title from the Profile tab within the Personal Settings page.

To update your picture, create an account on Gravatar and associate it with your email address.

If you log in to Datadog using Google authentication, your email address is provided by your Google account and is not editable within Datadog. To change your email address in Google, see the Google documentation.


You can manage your timezone, visual accessibility preference, and email subscriptions from the Preferences tab within the Personal Settings page.

Email subscriptions

Under email subscriptions, you have access to the following reports:

  • Daily Digest
  • Weekly Digest

If you are unsure if an email digest is relevant to you, you can view an example by clicking the Example link next to each email subscription. You can also use the Unsubscribe From All button to unsubscribe from all email subscriptions.

You can manage your timezone and visual accessibility preference from the Preferences tab within the Personal Settings page.

Visual accessibility

The visual accessibility preference has five different settings to address color vision deficiency, low visual acuity, and sensitivity to bright colors. If you opt in to an accessible color setting, Datadog translates all graphs that use the classic color palette to an accessible set of colors catered to your visual needs.

Note: Your visual accessibility preference is saved locally in your browser. If you use a different browser or clear your cache, the preference is set to the default setting.


The Organizations tab in Personal Settings lists all of the organizations you are associated with. Switch between these organizations from this page or by hovering over the account menu in the left-side navigation.

Note: If you leave an organization, you cannot rejoin unless invited by an administrator in that organization.

To join an existing organization, you must be invited by an administrator. After you are invited, you are sent an email with the subject “You’ve been invited to join ”. Click the Join Account button in the email.

If you are an organization administrator, reference the additional documentation to:

You can also click into a specific key to edit its name, view when it was created, view the profile of the key’s owner, copy it, or revoke it.


The Apps tab in Personal Settings allows you to manage apps that have been installed or created by members of your organization. You can filter apps with a search string, or choose to view only enabled or disabled apps using checkboxes.

When you hover over an app, the option to enable or disable it appears on the right of the app listing.
