How do I Enable the Greenhouse Integration?

Before you get started, you will need to create an API key in BambooHR. You will use this API key later during set up.

To ensure the integration works properly, the API key should be created by a user who has edit access to all current and future Document folders on the employee profile. This can be an Admin user or a custom access user with this specific access.

Login to your Greenhouse account. Select "Integrations." Scroll down to BambooHR and click "Connect."

Paste the API key you created in your BambooHR account and enter your company subdomain.*

Click "Save" and the integration is enabled.

*The subdomain is the first part of your BambooHR URL so if your account URL is then your subdomain would be "helpcontent."

How do I Export an Applicant to BambooHR?

When viewing a candidate in Greenhouse, once you mark the candidate as hired you will see the "Offer Accepted" pop up box. Once you fill out the offer information, be sure to check the box to "Export to BambooHR?" in order to have a new employee profile automatically created in BambooHR.
