New improvements to your ORCID record

As recently announced by ORCID, records have recently seen enhancements to their privacy settings. You can now individually set the privacy settings for all items in every section of your profile.

It is now also possible to list items in your preferred order. For example, you can override alphabetical order and have your preferred name appear at the top of your “Also known as” list.
