As a business owner, you may have created your own organization, or your accountant or bookkeeper may have created your organization on your behalf and invited you to join Hubdoc. In both scenarios, it is helpful to know how to access your organization’s settings so you can make changes to your profile information, customize your Hubdoc email, add two-factor authentication to your organization, and connect to Hubdoc's integrations.
Access your account settings
To review your organization settings, navigate to the Profile & Security tab within your Hubdoc account.
Review profile information
Make sure your profile information is kept up to date. Review and make changes as necessary. See below for more information about each field:
- First and last name – The name should reflect the primary account holder’s name.
- Company – The company name should reflect the company utilizing the account for their books.
- Email – The email address should correspond to the primary account holder. If email alerts are enabled, this address will receive email notifications.
- Base currency – The base currency should reflect the currency that the majority of your purchases are made in.
- Date format – The date format should reflect the format used in your country or where the majority of your purchases are made.

Customize your Hubdoc email
Each Hubdoc organization has a unique, customizable email that is used to send documents into Hubdoc that ends in @app.hubdoc.com. Before you start emailing documents into Hubdoc, change the email address assigned to your organization to one that's specific and unique to your business. To make sure that emailed documents are uploaded to the correct Hubdoc organization, we add four unique characters when you change the email address.
Moving forward, you can send documents to this email address and they will upload to your Hubdoc organization for processing.
Set up two-factor authentication
Two-factor authentication (2FA) provides an extra layer of security for your Hubdoc account. Two-factor authentication is a combination of your username, password, and an authentication code sent to your mobile device. Navigate to the Profile & Security tab to add 2FA to your account and read our Xero Central article for step-by-step instructions.
Connect to Hubdoc integrations
Connecting your Hubdoc account to the appropriate integrations allows you to sync your documents and their data to the right place in your accounting workflow.
If you are working with an accountant or bookkeeper, this process may already be completed for you! If you are managing your own account, we recommend completing this process during initial account set up to prepare for a smooth workflow when you begin working with documents.
