Payroll platform: Update employee details


Sometimes an employee, manager, or admin will need to update their personal details when their circumstances change. These changes can include needing to update an employee's account email if they switch email provider, their home address if they have moved, or their mobile phone number if they change to another carrier. 

The Personal Details feature is where you update these details if they change, with the payroll platform reflecting these changes throughout the entire platform. This means there is only one place you need to update your details if they change. Making sure your records on the payroll platform are always up to date.


If you use our HR product, then you will need to update an employee's details via your HR platform and these changes will then sync over to your payroll platform. The HR platform is the source of truth for these details, not the payroll platform. To read further details on this feature, you can refer to the following article.
