Report specification: Sync user accounts with Workday

Permissions: —

Product tier: Available for Expert subscription tier with HRIS Link add-on

In order to sync user accounts with Workday using HRIS Link, you must first build a report that matches Greenhouse Recruiting's specifications.

Note: HRIS Link relies on an exact match of the report column header. In most cases, you will need to update or override the default value when adding the column to your Workday report.
