Sapling can sync new hire data with your Lattice account, saving your HR, and People Operations team time from manual data entry and removing the risk of errors.


Lattice allows you to automatically configure Sapling to send user profile updates to Lattice using SCIM.

With the Lattice integration, Sapling will:

  1. Create Users: When a user completes their Sapling profile, they will automatically be created in Lattice.

  2. Update User Attributes: When a user attribute is changed in Sapling, the corresponding user profile in Lattice will automatically be updated.

  3. Deactivate Users: When a user is offboarded in Sapling, the corresponding user in Lattice will automatically be disabled.

  4. Link Users: Link all existing Sapling team members to a user account in Lattice based on email address.

*IMPORTANT: To set up this integration, you will need to contact your Lattice Customer Success Manager to manually turn on the Sapling integration on their end. For any additional assistance with set up, feel free to email help@trysapling.com.

Integration Fields

Sapling is continually expanding the number of fields that sync between Sapling and Lattice.

  • Here is a full list of Sapling and Lattice Integration Fields.

Key Factors to be aware of

Import Log

If you want to confirm that your Sapling integration has synced successfully, you can check in the integration log. Here's how you access your integration log:

  • Navigate to your "Admin" page.

  • Under "People" on the left-hand side, click on the "Import Log."

From here, you can view what synced successfully and what needs to be troubleshot. You can view what occurred within Lattice by looking at the Description column.

There are three statuses in the import log:

The green checkmark indicates that Sapling synced successfully with Lattice.

The orange exclamation point indicates that the Sapling sync was successful, but not all data was pulled over.

The red "X" indicates that the Sapling sync failed.

If you want to view each status in more detail, click directly into the event you would like to view. From here, you will have more of a high-level overview of what was updated or what failed to update

API Key in Lattice

  • If you revoke this API key, then the SCIM integration will not work.

  • An API key can give a server access to almost all of your Lattice data! Treat this key as if it were your password — do not share this key with anyone you do not trust, and avoid sending it to others over IM or email.

Employee & Field Names in Sapling

  • To ensure a consistent data flow, once you activate this integration, we'll attempt to match all existing employees between Sapling and Lattice.

  • For the Fields to sync correctly, the naming conventions must match between Sapling and Lattice.

  • Location

  • Department

  • Employment Status
