In Personal info and settings, users can perform actions such as changing their password lists and updating their contact details. The view can be accessed by clicking the person icon at the top of the view and then by choosing Personal info and settings from the drop-down menu.
The sections of the view
- First name
- Last name, address
- Postal code
- Mobile phone number
- E-mail address
This information can only be edited by the user him- or herself. Procountor reminds users to check and update their personal information at login every 6 months. At the time, the software will also suggest using the Finago Key application, if the user is not already using it. Up to date user information helps users with, for example, login problems, and it also helps Procountor’s customer service to identify customers in order to serve them better.
In the Home environment field, users can specify their home environments. If the user is only linked to one environment, this will be the only environment available in the menu. Users linked to more than one environment can choose a home environment from the drop-down menu, but this is not mandatory. The home environment can also be chosen by clicking on the magnifying glass next to the menu.
Social security number
Users with the Personnel role must enter their social security numbers in complete form into the Personal information section. The privileges of such users are limited to creating and viewing their own travel invoices, viewing their salary information and editing their personal information. Their information must also be completed in the person register. If you wish to limit a user with a role other than Personnel to processing only his or her own travel and expense invoices, you must also enter that user’s social security number. The user must also be registered as a person in the business partner register. For other users, entering the social security number is optional but recommended. A correctly entered SSN including the check digits, i.e. in ddmmyy-xxxx format, cannot be edited later.
If a user only has privileges to his or her own travel and expense invoices but the user’s social security number has not been saved in his or her Personal information and settings in the Management section, a notification will be displayed when the user opens the new travel or expense invoice view.
The e-mail address saved in personal info and settings will be used in following situations:
- Restoring or changing the password
- Identifying the user in customer service
- Notifications about invoices waiting for verification or approval
- Procountor’s newsletter
- Disruption info
- Notifications of invoice specific discussion
- Customer surveys
It is strongly recommended to fill the personal info carefully and keep the information updated.

The buttons of the view
Edit Katso credentials
With the button, Katso credidentials can be saved to Procountor. Katso credentials are needed, when sending periodic tax returns and VAT summary notifications through Procountor, since the Finnish Tax Administration requires strong identification for using these services. After the credentials have been saved in Procountor, the user will not be required to enter his or her credentials every time when making a notification through Procountor – the program will retrieve the required information directly from the user’s Personal information. More information about editing Katso credentials can be found here.
- The button opens a view, where the password can be changed. Password change will be verified with the current password and with Finago Key application or with single-use password list.
Change password lists
- Clicking the button creates a new list of single-use passwords. The password list can also be changed while logging in to Procountor, when there are 10 or less passwords remaining on the list.
- After creating a new password list, it is immediately in use, and the old one can no longer be used.
- The password list can be downloaded as a HTML or PDF file on user’s computer and it can be printed if necessary.
- If the username or the password is missing, they can be restored on log-in page by clicking Problems signing in? The username or the password will be sent to the email address or the phone number filled into the Personal information and settings view.
- Alternative to the single-use password list is Finago Key application. The application can be downloaded from the application store and user’s username and password are used when logging in. Using Finago Key replaces the single-use password list.
