Introduction

Connecting Sapling to Linkedin Talent Hub provides a streamlined employee and People Ops experience, offering a seamless flow of data from ATS --> Sapling to save you time & eliminate manual work.

This is a one-way integration from Talent Hub to Sapling, syncing the following fields:

  1. firstName

  2. lastName

  3. jobTitle

  4. jobLocation

  5. emailAddresses

  6. phoneNumbers

  7. startDate

How does the integration work?

When a candidate profile in LinkedIn Talent Hub has been selected as ‘Export to HRIS', the integration sends the new hire data to Sapling.

As a Sapling Admin, you can review all pending hires sent over from Linkedin via the Pending Hires bay.

Once you select the employee you would like to onboard, the new hire data will be populated into the first step of Sapling to initiate an onboarding process for a new hire.

New Hire’s are then sent their onboarding invitation to complete their preboarding.

They can then complete their New Hire preboarding experience.

Setting up the Integration

Step #1. Configure LinkedIn Extensions

To export candidate profile to your Human Resource Information System (HRIS), Navigate to Linkedin and enable the Sapling extension.

Step #2 - Create HRIS export request

When you create an HRIS export request on LinkedIn with your extension, LinkedIn will send a push notification to Sapling’s callback URL registered during the onboarding process.

Step #3 - Sapling receives the alert and retrieves the Candidate Profile

When the callback URL has sent a notification event to Sapling, an API call is made to retrieve the profile information of the candidate and populate them in your pending hires bay.
