If you are the current admin user of your Breathe account and want to transfer this access over to another user then this article will take you through the process step by step.

Please note, only the admin user of the account that has the access to do this.

Logged in to Breathe as the admin, go to your employee profile > more > permissions

Click the edit (pencil) icon and at the bottom of the page you will have the option to change the admin to another HR user

Select the employee and click 'submit'. If you can't see the person in the list, they will need to be given HR user rights first before you can assign them with the admin roles

To assign someone with HR user rights, go into their employee profile > more tab > permissions > mark yes is a HR user.


I only have 1 HR user within my account- what do I do?

If your Breathe plan is a Micro account (less than 10 employees) you will only have 1 HR user and will not be able to move admin user permissions to another HR user. In this case, we ask that the current admin user please sends an email to stating the name of the person who is to receive admin user permissions and we will help you transfer the admin rights over.

Our admin user has left and we need to move permissions over

If the admin user has left the company, we can change it here for you, but we require an email from the company's CEO or a listed company director sent to This is in order to verify this change request and to protect your data.

Please note- for security reasons, we are unable to accept the change of admin request from the person that permissions are due to transfer to- for example, if admin permissions need to transfer to you, please provide authorisation of this from a third party.
