Change an employee's email address - Sage HR Online Services

Created on  | Last modified on 


This guide explains how to change or correct an employee's email address in Sage HR Online Services.


When you set up Sage HR Online Services for your employees, they receive a welcome email to be able to log in to view their payslips 24/7. This means it's important to enter the correct email address when you set them up.

However, we know sometimes it's easy to make a typo, or perhaps an employee gets a new email address.

An employee can't amend the email address themselves, so this must be done by an admin user. Due to the email address being a locked field in Sage HR Online Services, this means it has to be amended through Sage 50cloud Payroll.

How you update the email address will depend on what version your Sage HR Online Services is. Don't worry, we'll take you through this step-by-step on how to quickly check your version, then how to change the email address once you know your version.
