Integrating your BambooHR account [Pro]

Follow

Connect your Workable and BambooHR accounts to seamlessly export candidate information to your BambooHR account. When you hire a candidate, their details are transferred to BambooHR as a new employee. Additionally, as of April 2018, BambooHR has updated their platform to comply with GDPR regulations.

Imported information:

  • Photo or avatar (depending on your account settings)
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Job Title
  • Department
  • Personal Email address
  • Personal phone number
  • Gender (EEO enabled accounts only)
  • Ethnicity (EEO enabled accounts only)
  • Candidate resume

Setting up the integration

To start, login to Workable and click your profile icon in the upper right. Select Integrations (you must be an admin to do this).

Under HR Information Systems click on BambooHR.

Enter the subdomain for your BambooHR account. The subdomain is the first part of the URL you use when you access your BambooHR account. For example, if you access BambooHR via the following address: https://my_company.bamboohr.com , your subdomain would be my_company.

Next, enter the API key from your BambooHR account. To create an API Key, visit your BambooHR company page:

  • Click on your Account icon
  • Select API Keys
  • Click on the "Add new key" button

This will create a new entry in the "Valid API Keys" table. Copy the value of the "Key" column and paste it in the corresponding Key field in Workable.

Click Update Settings and the integration will be complete.

Exporting candidates to BambooHR

Auto-export

In the Integrations section of your account, under BambooHR, there is an option to enable auto-export for hired candidates.

When this switch is set to ON, any candidate who is moved to a Hired stage in your pipeline will automatically have their details sent to BambooHR.

When the switch is set to OFF, you'll need to manually export candidates in Hired stage.

Manual export

When the auto-export switch is to OFF, a button will appear in the toolbar for candidates in the Hired stage. Click this button to send the candidate's details to BambooHR.
