If you have more than one person who needs access to Sage 50 Accounts, you can easily set up a login for each user.

This guide takes you through how to set up new user logins.  When setting up new users like this – you can keep track of each user’s activity and control what areas they can access.

How do I create a new user?

Only the manager login name or a user who is configured as an ‘administrator user’ has the ability to add a new user.

1. Login to Sage 50 Accounts with the login username manager and associated password.

2. Click Settings, then click User Management and then click Users.

3. Click New, then click the required user type, then click Continue.

4. In the user profile window, enter the user information.

  • Create a username – Each person using the software must have a user name. The name can use upper or lower case characters, spaces or numbers.
  • Password not required – Select this option if you don’t want this user to have a password.
    Note: The option is only available to a standard user type.
  • Require password change at next login – Select this option if you want the user to change their password next time they logon to this company.
  • Create Password / Confirm Password – Adding a password to a username does provide extra security.
