Before the sync can occur between the two systems, you will need to map the fields for syncing.

By default, the Employee ID field in BambooHR maps to Reward Gateway to identify the employee. If you would like to map any additional fields, you can look through this list and select the BambooHR field you would like have mapped over.

The Email Address field is required. You can select to link this to the home email or work email in BambooHR. This is mandatory for the employee to have an account with Reward Gateway.

Once you set up the mapping for all desired fields, scroll to the bottom and click Save.

BambooHR will start syncing data to Reward Gateway based on the frequency selected in the setup.
