How does SwipeClock integrate with BambooHR?

SwipeClock® is an online time and attendance solution for businesses, both large and small. It defines practicality in today’s timekeeping industry, offering simple hardware setup, exceptional user-ease, and affordability to businesses of all sizes. Through SwipeClock’s web-based service, employers can automate the process of collecting and calculating time card data for payroll, and payroll providers can automate the process of collecting timekeeping data while increasing revenue generated from their payroll package.

SwipeClock® integrates with BambooHR through our API.  Employee information from within BambooHR is pushed to SwipeClock® so the two systems stay in sync. Please note that this integration is not designed to send information out of SwipeClock and into BambooHR, so BambooHR will need to be the primary system of record.

How do I Enable the BambooHR Integration?

Bamboohr dashboard Swipeclock

  1. Click on the Apps icon in the top right corner of your BambooHR account.
  2. Select the “Time & Attendance” section and click on SwipeClock.
    1. This page will give you additional information about BambooHR’s integration with SwipeClock.

    1. If you do not see this option please contact BambooHR Customer Support to activate it.

The “Employee Code” field in SwipeClock and the “Employee #” field in BambooHR must match before this synchronization is activated. If they do not then a duplicate record will be created in TimeWorksPlus.

Turn on the integration and follow these 2 steps to finish the installation:

  1. Retrieve the site ID from TimeWorksPlus

  2. Enter the username and password that you use to log into TimeWorksPlus (not your BambooHR login).

Once everything is entered, click “Install.”

You can choose to automatically sync data between BambooHR and TimeWorksPlus at any time by checking the “On” (checked by default).

What Data Syncs Between BambooHR and SwipeClock?
