Updating user information

System Admins can view information about users, update their email addresses, send or resend the invitation email to allow users to activate their HighBond account, and update the subscriptions and roles assigned to each user.

Note

System Admins cannot change their own subscription. Another System Admin must do this for you if you are a System Admin.

Updating user names

HighBond users must update their own names from their user profiles.

Updating user emails

Email addresses change, occasionally. This is typically due to a change in someone's name (for example, after a change in marital status), or a company merger or rebrand. Do not change the email address on an account for the purposes of transferring that account to another person.

If you are a System Admin, in most cases, you can update the email address for any user in your instance of HighBond.

Note

This user will not be able to access HighBond with their old email address.

Users who belong to multiple instances of HighBond

If a user belongs to multiple instances of HighBond, all of those instances must belong to your company in order to update their email. If a user belongs to an instance for another company as well, contact Support to update their email.

Users who sign in with single sign-on

If your users log into HighBond through a single sign-on identity provider, update their email in your identity provider while or before updating it in HighBond. If you update someone's email in HighBond but not your identity provider, that person will lose access to HighBond until the identity provider is updated.
