Profiles are used to define all relevant links between workflows, metadata, user groups, and rendering codes. Here it is determined which user group is allowed to see and execute the corresponding profile, which metadata is transferred when the job is executed and which render nodes from the pool can take over the job. It is divided into a sidebar menu, a list view, and a hidden overlay.
The Profile menu in HK provides almost the same functionality as the profile menu in IO.
