To help you see the full context of who the requester of a specific request is you can now connect Back to your BambooHR account, bringing all relevant employee profile information into Back.

Connecting to BambooHR

💁🏻‍♂️ Back will only have access to the same information as the user configuring the connection, so in order for the integration to work properly make sure that a BambooHR user with sufficient rights is configuring the integration.

Select Connect in the BambooHR row to open the configuration dialog.

  1. Enter your company subdomain in the first field.
    ℹ️ Your company domain is what is before in your BambooHR login URL, e.g. if your URL is your company subdomain is backtech.

  2. Click on Submit and you will be redirected to BambooHR where you'll need to log in to authorize the connection.

  3. Once you log in, you'll be automatically redirected back to Back and the integration will be configured.

From now on, Back will periodically synchronize your employee information from BambooHR with Back incl. information about employee's role, department, office, supervisor, and hire date.

Information synchronized from BambooHR:

  • Name

  • E-mail

  • Hire date

  • Role

  • Department

  • Location

  • Supervisor name and email

  • Vacation day balance
