The plugin adds contact editing to the user profile form whenever a contact and a user are linked together.
You cannot use the plugin if users are linked to multiple contacts.
You can, however, create a User Contacts view instead if you want users to be able to edit all associated contacts
Troubleshoot When using other plugins to edit a profile (like
Easy Profile for instance), you may need to re-order the plugins for them to properly work together.
|Notify admins||Send an email or a private message (through the administrator console) to all administrators when a user modifies its contact information.
Note Administrators need to be able to receive system emails (user account setting).
You can override the messages by changing the language keys:
Joomla 4 Since v4.13, the email sent is using a new mail template. Go to System -> Mail Templates and look for the extension's edit notification template. The addition of modified data to the email body has no effect here, it is only available when editing contacts through the extension's edit view. More information can be found at Using Mail Templates

Add key contact fields
When editing core Joomla custom fields, you need to set the edit permissions to the fields in order for them to be editable.
When the plugin is enabled, even if
allow edition is set to
no in a module or menu item instance, the user profile will contain the added contact fields. If you do not want to allow the edition of contact information from a user’s profile, make sure you disable the plugin if previously enabled.
