How to update a client's email address for their Client Portal

If you'd like to update a client's email address for their Client Portal, please follow the directions below.

Note: Remember that a client's email address is their username when it comes to accessing their Client Portal. 

To see what email address is currently being used for a client's Portal, you'll want to:

  • Navigate to that specific client's Overview page > Edit Details > Client Portal tab.
  • Here, you'll be able to see the email associated with that client's Portal.

To update the email address for a client who has already logged into their Portal successfully: 

  • Go to Clients > Client Name > Edit Details
    You can make any changes either by updating the current email address or adding a new email address.

  • After you've updated or added a new email address, navigate to the Client Portal tab.
  • Use the dropdown menu to locate your newly updated or added email address to select.
