Why Integrate with Zenefits?

Integrating Zenefits with Lessonly helps teams:

  • Automatically create an employee's Lessonly account during the hiring process. The employee will receive a new account notification from Zenefits the day before their hire date.

  • Immediately disable and delete an employee's Lessonly account during the termination process. Please note that delete means delete; the employee's account will not be archived and cannot be restored.

πŸ’‘ Important Note: You must have Lessonly administrator permissions to create the integration.

How to Set Up the Zenefits <> Lessonly Integration

First, select Add an App from the Zenefits dashboard, then select Lessonly.

Next, locate your Lessonly subdomain and API key. Both can be found in the Settings menu, which can be accessed by selecting the gear icon in the upper right corner of Lessonly's interface.

Select the API & Webhook tab from the Settings menu, then click the button that reads "Show API credentials." Copy the subdomain and API key.

🚨 Important Note: Treat your API key as a password! Keep it secret, keep it safe.

Return to Zenefits. You must grant Lessonly permission to access the following items:

  • Basic company information

  • Employment information

  • Employees' basic information

  • Employees' work email addresses and the ability to update same

  • Updating employees' work email addresses

Note that the employee's name, email address, title, department, location, and manager will automatically sync.

Once you've granted these permissions, you'll be taken back to Lessonly to complete the setup. Once setup is complete, a green Connected status will appear in Zenefits under the Lessonly app's icon.

πŸ™‹ Please contact your Zenefits administrator if you have questions about setting up this integration.
