About the Integration 

Namely is a human resource platform handling payroll, benefits, and talent management, all in one place.

First things first: Namely needs to be enabled for an account. If the Namely integration is not an option under Integrations in Settings, please email the Support team.

Once enabled, this integration can be located by Seismic Learning admins and users with company setting permissions by selecting the gear icon in the upper-right corner > Settings > Integrations.

You need the following two pieces of information to begin the set up:

  • Your Seismic Learning instance subdomain

  • A Namely access token

Create the Namely Access Token

The primary Namely admin user needs to first create an access token. To do so, log in to Namely > select API (the lightning bolt icon) > and then select "Create New Personal Token." 

Important Note: The access token is personalized to one user and expires every two years. If the token creator no longer has access to Namely or the token is expired, a new token will need to be created.

Input and Set the Namely Credentials

Copy the subdomain and the Namely access token into the specified fields and select "Set Credentials."

💡 The subdomain can be found in the URL of a company's Learning account. For example, if the URL reads: "" The subdomain is "company."

This kicks off the initial sync, which may take between 15-20 minutes. 

After the sync runs successfully, the completion status appears with the timestamp, and the ability to re-sync if needed.

Moving forward syncs automatically run every night at 2:00 am ET.

Custom Group Creation

Depending on the settings selected, there are two fields you can sync from Namely to Seismic Learning to create Custom Groups. Those fields are:

  • Department

  • Job Tier

Syncing User Fields

In addition to creating Custom Groups, Seismic Learning can sync fields from Namely tied to each individual.

​ The user can select all, a variety, or none of the fields to sync over to Seismic Learning.

For Custom User Fields, the user can enter Namely fields (separated by commas) to map to Seismic Learning Custom User Fields.

Syncing custom user fields doesn't allow new fields to be created in Namely. This only allows an existing Namely field to connect to a custom field already set up in Seismic Learning.

Important Notes

  • If a field is standard in Namely, for example, "entity" or "division," but is not standard in Learning, then you must create these fields as custom fields in Namely. If not, these fields will not sync over from Namely to Learning.

  • Seismic Learning syncs any user with a Namely "user_status" that is not "inactive". This may affect an organization if they have users in their Namely account set to "pending." Pending users will be synced through to Learning.
