How to import custom attributes from BambooHR, Namely, Rippling, and Zenefits
Lattice now allows you to pull your custom attributes from your HRIS into the platform!
How to Sync Custom Attributes
Step 1: Navigate to the Admin Page from the Discovery Navigation on the left, and under the "People" section, click on "User Attributes."
Step 2: In the top right corner, click on "Create custom attribute" and select the option to "Import custom attribute from HRIS."
Step 3: Select from the dropdown the attribute name within your HRIS that you want to pull into Lattice.
Step 4: Click on "Add attribute."
Note: Ensure that this attribute already exists within your HRIS. The name of the attribute in Lattice should match the name of the attribute in your HRIS exactly.
Note: The attributes you can pull into Lattice from your HRIS correspond to the types of user attributes that Lattice currently supports. For example, Lattice offers multiple-choice, relationship, and numeric ranges as user attributes. The fields pulled in from your HRIS will be limited to these specific user attributes in Lattice.
You're done! Your Lattice users' custom attribute will be updated in your next following HRIS sync.
How to Disconnect Custom Attributes
You can additionally disconnect imported attributes from your HRIS in Lattice.
Step 1: Click on the ellipsis next to the custom attribute imported from your HRIS. Any custom attribute pulled in from your HRIS will have an icon indicating the integration system from which it came.
Step 2: Click "Disconnect from [HRIS]."
Note: Disconnecting your custom attribute won't remove any data but will cease to be updated from future HRIS syncs.
How to Connect Manually Created Attributes to Your HRIS
If you have manually created user attributes within the Lattice platform, you can link them to existing user attributes in your HRIS.
Step 1: Click on the ellipsis next to the custom attribute you are looking to connect to your HRIS.
Step 2: Click "Link to [HRIS]."
Step 3: Select an existing attribute from the dropdown and click "Link attribute."
Linking the attributes gives you the ability to connect a manually created lattice user attribute to an existing attribute in your HRIS. When you update the user attribute in your HRIS, it'll sync to Lattice as well.
