Create a New Password

How do I Create a New Password?

Purpose: To teach you how to create a new password as an employee as well as how an administrator can assist in creating a new password for an employee.

BambooHR requires an employee to login with an email address and password, unless you have enabled a single sign-on integration with your BambooHR account. When an employee is enabled with access to login to BambooHR, they will receive an email with a link to create a password and login. If the employee forgets his or her password, there are two ways to obtain a new one:

Send Password Reset Email to the Employee as an Administrator

As an administrator, you have the ability to send the employee an email with a link to set up a new password. You can easily do this by going to the employee's profile and clicking on the action menu. Then select "Reset User's Password." This will immediately send the employee an email with a new link to set up a password.

If the employee didn't receive the first email to set up a password when you enabled their access originally, it is a good idea to check their email address and make sure it is correct before resetting their password and generating a new email.
