clearbit enrichment provides an avatar URL for my users. Can I set an attribute that will update users in Customer IO to show their avatar in the UI?

Hey @NickH 


Apologies for the confusion, and thank you for the reminder — we needed to remove the mention of Gravatar usage in our docs, this feature has been removed from For now, the avatar are initials which are generated from specific metadata available on the profile.


We’ll create a new feature request to implement some kind of attribute to store a profile’s avatar. Please don’t hesitate to send any other feature requests to us via email to 😊
