Note: Functionality within the Business Portal is currently only available to Employment Hero's Value Added Reseller Network with a Business Account.
Business Account Administrators may be in charge of hiring employees for their clients and may need to be the main signatory for HR documents. To achieve this, we have added a new option to allow Business Account Administrators to be added as an option in the Authorising Signatory setup.
How do I make a Business Account Administrator an Authorising Signatory of an organisation?
Business Account users with permission to manage Business Account Administrators will be able to select if a Business Account Administrator can be assigned as an authorising signatory for the organisations they manage.
When this option is selected, it does not mean that the Business Account Administrator will automatically be the Authorising Signatory for all organisations they manage.
This option will allow the Business Account Administrator to simply appear in the dropdown when setting up the Authorising Signatory for an organisation.
When a Business Account Administrator is selected as the Authorising Signatory for an organisation, they will also appear in the Sending Signatory dropdown when issuing HR documents to employees, through an employee file or when onboarding a new employee.
- If a Business Account Administrator has been selected as an Authorising Signatory for an organisation, when the option to be assigned as an authorising signatory for the organisations they manage is unselected in the Business Portal, they will still remain as the Authorising Signatory and appear in the Sending Signatory dropdown for that organisation but will not appear in the Authoring Signatory dropwdown to be selected in other organisations they manage.
- If a Business Account Administrator has been selected as an Authorising Signatory for an organisation, when they lose access to that organisation, they will still remain as the Authorising Signatory but will not appear in the Sending Signatory dropdown for that organisation.
- The process of selecting an Authorising Signatory, setting up an e-Signature and Sending Authorities remain the same. Please refer to this article for more information.
