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.

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 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.
