Before the sync can occur between the two systems, you will need to map the fields that will be synced.

By default, the Employee ID in BambooHR is mapped to Reward Gateway in order to identify the employee. If you'd like to map any additional fields, you can look through this list and select the BambooHR field you'd like 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 in order for the employee to have an account with Reward Gateway.

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