To establish why you can't log in, and what to do to resolve it, run through each check below.

📎NOTE: If you use Sage HR to access payslips (Sage HR Online Services), you can use this guide, but we recommend reading our other guide tailored specifically for Sage HR Online Services users - Read more >


1. Have you logged in before?

Have you successfully logged into Sage HR.

Yes I have

In that case, please move on to the next check.

No I haven't

Okay, before you log in to Sage HR for the first time, you must have set up your access from your welcome email.

If you've not received a welcome email yet please contact your employer to check if they've sent you one and that they've used the correct email address for you. They can resend the welcome email to you if required.

If you've already set up your access, but can't log in, move on to the next check.


2. Checks to make with your employer

There are some checks you need to make which require confirmation from your employer. Please contact them directly and check all of the following with them:

  • Confirm the email address you are entering matches the one your employer has set you up with.

  • Confirm your profile hasn't been terminated by an admin.

  • Confirm that your login access hasn't been disabled by an admin.

    📎NOTE: If you've been set up with the wrong email address, or you have a new email address you want to log in with instead, please inform your employer so they can change this for you.

Once you've confirmed each of the checks above with your employer if you still can't log in move on to the next check.


3. Reset your password

Check whether you are entering the correct password. If you can't think of anything else it could be, you can reset your password.

When logging into the Sage HR app, if the domain in your login page's URL is wrong, or you have entered the wrong domain when asked for it, this can be why you're unable to log in.
