This document outlines the main steps to Integrate Workable with Enboarder. Workable Integration utilizes the Webhook feature and their API. The current Integration support hired event when candidate hired and moved to hire stage.

Before you begin: Like anything worth doing, integrations take time. Please allow up to 4 weeks for this integration to be completed, this includes time for scoping, development and testing. You’ll also need to have a system expert and/or system administrator to assist in the completion of this integration.

Enboarder Integration Set up

Here are the steps for Integration:

  • Login as admin user and go to Settings → Integration → App center

  • Click on the tile Workable (or search if you can't see it) for which you want the integration setup.

  • Click on Add Integration button

  • On the next screen, click on Integrate now button.

  • The system will redirect you to the Workable site. Please enter your workable credentials

  • If there is no error, the system will mark the tile Workable as Integrated. It will also register the webhook URL for enboarder

Field Mapping in Enboarder

Start Date mapping

By default, Enboarder uses the date when the candidate moves to the hire stage as the Start date. In case you want to set up some other date, then please ask Workable Support to create a custom field in your Workable account. The data type of this field should be Date and its label should be "Start Date". If this field is set and it has value then it will be used as the start date in our system.

Mapping Extra Managers via Custom Fields

By default, the Workable integration supports 1 manager role ( Direct Manager) which is mapped to the member who moved candidates to the hiring stage. To map extra managers with mobile numbers or emails, Workable custom fields should be used.

These custom fields need to be created on the candidate profile and will be filled by users only. The type of both fields should be text. The naming convention to be used for the Custom field should be as follows

Say we have created Recruiter as a dynamic stakeholder in Enboarder. Now to define Mobile or Email for this stakeholder, the Key name convention same as the stakeholder label but suffixed with mobile or email. ( Example: Recruiter Mobile or Recruiter Email). You need to create a minimum of 2 fields

  • First for the name. Its name should be the same as the stakeholder label in Enboarder

  • Second field either email or mobile with the name as stakeholder label suffixed with mobile or email as below

Now Enboarder will be able to map multiple stakeholders for you to launch Workflows with!

How to create Candidate Data in Workable

  • Fill in the candidate detail and click on Candidate detail

  • On the next screen, move the candidate to the offer stage

  • On the offer screen, make the candidate offer and fill in the detail and send it to the candidate.

Mapping Extra Managers via Custom Fields

By default, Workable integration supports 1 manager role ( Direct Manager) which is mapped to the member who moved candidates to the hiring stage. To map extra managers with mobile numbers or emails, Workable custom fields should be used. These custom fields need to be created at the candidate profile and will be filled by users only. The type of both fields should be text. The naming convention to be used for the Custom field should be as follows

Say we have created Recruiter as a dynamic stakeholder in Enboarder. Now to define Mobile or Email for this stakeholder, the Key name convention same as the stakeholder label but suffixed with mobile or email. ( Example- Recruiter Mobile or Recruiter Email). You need to create a minimum of 2 fields

  • first for the name. Its name should be the same as the stakeholder label

  • second either email or mobile with name as stakeholder label suffixed with mobile or email.

TroubleShooting

You can now investigate the mapping issues very easily. The API response is now available on UI. Please go to Setting ->Integration -> Audit logs for that account to view the complete payload. There will be multiple rows. One contains the complete response message and the rest will provide candidate information regarding workflow.

Click on the row with blank Employee to see complete payload.

That completes the Workable integration setup.

Please reach out to your Customer Success Manager if you have any questions.
