Export employee profile

Owners and Coordinators in Greenhouse Onboarding can export an employee profile to BambooHR with the Export to Bamboo HR button under the Integrations tab on their employee profile. 


Note: Since every organization defines its onboarding process differently, employee data can only be exported manually from Greenhouse Onboarding. Additionally, this export can only be performed once in Greenhouse Onboarding, so verify that all details are correct before sending to BambooHR.

Once the employee profile is successfully exported to BambooHR, the export date, user, and BambooHR ID will display on the Integrations tab of the employee profile.
