How the Trinet integration works end to end

Step #1 - A New Hire is invited to onboard by a Sapling Admin

Sapling requires the collection of certain information to provision new accounts in TriNet. On a new hire record, new employees will be required to complete their First Name, Last Name and Email.

Step #2 - New Hire receives Onboarding Invitation

Step #3 - New Hire completes Preboarding (employee record and paperwork)

Sapling's Preboarding portal is designed to provide a consistent and informative introduction in your new organization, and collect the data that your team needs for your first day.

The About You section collects all the data and paperwork you need for your employee record. Front-loading this administration is essential work for preboarding and enables Program Leads to ensure day one is exciting and strategically engaging.

Step #4 - New Hire data is sent to TriNet

  • The team member is created in TriNet with an “Incomplete” status

  • Once all additional data is collected in TriNet, the team member’s status will be updated to “Completed”

  • Sapling will check for updates on the team member’s status every 30 minutes, retrieving the employee ID once the status is “Completed” which enables all future changes to be synced

Step #5 - Changes in Sapling are synced to TriNet

Any changes that are made in Sapling to the shared fields will be automatically synced to Trinet in real time.
