Change an Employee’s Name

From the Personal tab of the Employee Profile an employee’s name can be changed, or a preferred name added. You may need to update an employee’s name if they have had a legal name change for example.

  1. Open Canadian Payroll > Employee Profile > Employee Profile.

  2. Select the employee to rename from the Employee drop-down.

  3. From the Employee Profile menu on the left, open the Personal tab.

  4. Update the employee’s legal name as required for the Surname, Given Name, and Initial fields.

The preferred name can be used in place of an employee’s first name on many reports within Avanti.
Figure 1. Save the changes to the Employee Profile by pressing Apply or OK.
