How to set up the Workable integration

  1. From the left menu, select Settings > Integrations > Recruitment integration > Connect Workable. You'll be redirected to Workable.

  2. Sign in and you'll be redirected back to Bob.

  3. You'll now be connected, but you still need to paste your Workable domain into Bob and click Save e.g.

    Once a new hire is uploaded to Workable, you will receive an email and in-app notification from Bob.

    Note: You can also select additional users to receive these notifications in Settings > Integrations > Recruitment integration, once the integration has been set up. 


    This is what the email notification will look like: 


  4. Click the Complete the hiring process link.
    The Directory screen will open in Bob.
  5. Click + New hire.
    The Add a new hire to bob popup will open.
  6. Click Start.
    The New Hire wizard will launch pre-populated with the data taken from Workable (see Data mapping above).
  7. Fill in the new hire's data and complete the hiring process. See Add new hire for full details.
