If you want to have an Emergency Contacts field in an employee's profile, this needs to be enabled in your global permissions.

📎NOTE: This field is only available if you have the Core HR module or Sage HR Essentials.

  1. Click your email address in the top-right-hand corner, then click Settings.

  2. On the settings menu, click Permissions, then click Global.

  3. Make sure select both Emergency contacts under 'Enabled for everyone' and Emergency under 'Show tabs in employee profile'

  4. Click Save.

You can now add emergency contact details on an employee's profile. Depending on their permissions, an employee can add emergency contacts too.
