How the integration works?

Sapling leverages ADP’s Applicant Onboard API which allows Sapling to send applicants (and all information collected by Sapling) into ADP’s New Hire Wizard within ADP Workforce Now.

This then allows an ADP admin to login, confirm/ enrich the applicant data and then complete the new hire in the ADP onboarding wizard itself.

The typical workflow is:

1. A New Hire is invited to onboard by a Sapling Admin
2. The New Hire completes their employee record
3. The New Hire data is sent to ADP’s Hire/ Rehire
4. An ADP Admin confirms the Hire's information in ADP
5. The New Hire account is created in ADP

Course Hero

How Course Hero uses the Sapling to ADP integration

Candidate data is imported from Greenhouse, their Applicant Tracking System, into Sapling with their HR team then confirming the new hire data and initiating the new hire onboarding. 

From there, Sapling automatically provisions the new hire’s G-Suite account for the HR data - saving their IT team in manual data entry, emails and also reducing the chance of any errors. 

Internal stakeholders are notified and complete internal relevant workflows, with a sequence of triggered and scheduled emails coordinated during the process. 

Once their new hires complete preboarding, their new hire data is sent to ADP ensuring the Course Hero payroll team has everything they need from both the new hire, manager and people operations.
