3. Add your Company Tasks
Sapling automates your onboarding tasks and provide new-hires with a path for success.
Workflows allow you to manage consistent task management across the organization. This is typically managed by the People Operations team.
Sapling will come pre-populated with some basic activity templates that you can get started with, and you can add or edit these inside in the application.
4. Add your Company Documents
Documents allow you to streamline onboarding paperwork - our embedded e-signaturing solution allows team members to complete legally binding e-signatures on their onboarding, transition and offboarding documents.
Ensure all payroll, benefits and IP documents are accounted for.
5. Confirm Your Email Templates
Sapling's email templates allow you to create custom templates for new hires, your team member's, stakeholders, and internal team members.
6. Set-up your Team Member's Profile Fields
Your team member's profile fields contains all the fields that will be collected from new hires, managers and system admins. You can create and edit new fields that will be part of the team member's profile going forward.
Ensure you have the correct permission settings configured by using the visibility settings.
7. Preview your New Hire Experience
In the Admin Section, navigate to General where you'll be able to experience the New Hire welcome.
8. Launch Sapling to your team
Once you’ve completed your test onboarding and are comfortable with Sapling, send an email to your team members letting them know about Sapling and point them to New Hires and Team Members or Sapling Managers for their role-based learning path.
We have found a 30 minute kick-off with the People Operations team and the Sapling Training Deck (available here) to be the most successful.
Sapling can assist in communications and simple one-page how-to’s (for example sending a Sapling Introduction Email) and also directly with Managers.
