Update my Emergency Contacts

How do I Update my Emergency Contacts?

Purpose: Learn how to add your own emergency contacts to your employee profile in BambooHR so you can be prepared for any emergencies that might come your way. 

Do you prefer hands-on learning? Our interactive guides will walk you through different aspects of your Bamboo experience and we even have an interactive guide specifically designed to show you how to update your Emergency Contacts. You can use the link below to access this guide. All you need to do is modify the "REPLACEME" with your BambooHR subdomain and you can get started!  


To update your emergency contacts, navigate to the "My Info" tab and select "Emergency." Then click "Add Contact."

Enter the contact information for your new emergency contact. If you'd like him or her to be your primary contact, be sure to check that box. Once you've added the information, click "Save Changes." 

To edit an emergency contact, simply click in the box you need to edit in order to make changes. Or, click the "X" next to the contact's name to remove them. 

Depending on how your administrator has configured your account, updates and changes to Emergency Contact information may require approval before it is displayed on your profile.
