Seamlessly export candidate information from Workable to your Namely account. When you hire a candidate, their details are transferred to Namely as a new employee. You can also have a Namely onboarding session automatically created.
- Photo or avatar (depending on your account settings)
- First name
- Last name
- Personal email address
- Job title (as listed in Workable)
- Start date
- Candidate resume (PDF)
- LinkedIn URL (depending on your social profile privacy settings)
- User status (active)
Note: The Start Date that is sent to Namely is determined by either the start date set in an offer letter (using the [start_date] variable) or the start date set when filling a requisition (with Hiring Plan).
If neither offer letters or requisitions were used, the date that the candidate was moved to the Hired stage is sent as the Start Date.

Next, log in to your Namely account to create an API Key:
- Click on your Account icon
- Click on API

That's it! Workable and Namely are now connected.
Exporting candidates to Namely
In the Integrations section of your account, under Namely, 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 Namely.
When the switch is set to OFF, you'll need to manually export candidates in Hired stage.
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 Namely.
Creating an onboarding session
If you have the onboarding feature active on your Namely account you can have an onboarding session automatically created for candidates when they are moved to the Hired stage in Workable.
After setting up the integration in the Integration menu page by following the steps above, flip the Create onboarding session switch to ON. This option is available in the Integrations section of your Workable account under Namely. Click Update Settings to save the change.
