Connect BambooHR To PeopleGoal

PeopleGoal integrates with BambooHR, allowing you to utilize your BambooHR account employee database in your PeopleGoal account. BambooHR can be the primary source of employee information and it automatically syncronizes with PeopleGoal.

In this article, we provide a step-by-step guide on how to connect your BambooHR account with your PeopleGoal account.

Step 1: Generate an API Key in your BambooHR Account

The API key allows you to connect your PeopleGoal account to BambooHR. In BambooHR, click Account > API Keys and 'Add a New Key'. Once you generate your API key make sure you make a copy of it.

Step 3: Syncronize your BambooHR account with PeopleGoal

The syncronization imports all your employees, managers, teams and profile pictures from BambooHR to your PeopleGoal account. Once you click on 'Run Synchronization', your status will update to 'In progress'.

The process can take a few minutes, so you can leave it running in the background. The syncronization step will run automatically daily after the first run.
