If your team uses BambooHR as your employee database, you can have Donut automatically import new hires's first and last name, work email, start date, and manager. 

Donut will not automatically assign templates, but you can assign templates via the New Hire page once they are pushed to Donut from BambooHR. Read on to learn how to set up the integration.

Setting Up the BambooHR Integration

Basic Setup Instructions

  1. Login at app.donut.ai
  2. In the left nav, click "Settings"
  3. Select the "Integrations" tab
  4. Click the button that says "Set up now"
  5. Enter your Integration Credentials (your BambooHR API key and Domain; view instructions below to locate)
  6. Click "Create Integration" once you've entered the API key 
  7. Donut will confirm if successfully connected to BambooHR.
    Please note: It can take up to 15 minutes for your new hires to appear on the New Hire Page.
