Authorizing Employees for Support and Instructions


In this article we will show you how to designate up to two employees in your company for support and instructions when contacting Personio.


What is an employee authorized for support and instructions?

To prevent misuse regarding the administration of your customer account, Personio allows you to designate employees authorized for instructions. Only these employees are allowed to submit support requests via e-mail and telephone, grant (temporary) account access for Personio staff and give instructions, such as how to delete a customer account. For more information on granting access, click here. Due to data protection, all other employees must contact one of the authorized employees or an employee with administrative rights with their requests.

We recommend that you designate two support and instruction persons for your account. We recommend designating at least one administrator and one member of the management board to ensure smooth communication.

Please note that your account contains sensitive data. For the security of your account and to prevent misuse, our service employees are required to provide information and service only to the employees listed as authorized for support and instructions.
