Lever’s ADP Workforce Now integration allows you to streamline operations by automatically pushing new applicant onboarding records to ADP when candidates are hired in Lever. Available information from Lever’s candidate profile, requisition, offer, and profile form are pre-populated in ADP’s New Hire Wizard, saving time for your team and improving data quality. The field mapping can be done during or after enabling and setting up the Lever-ADP integration.

This article covers the following topics:

For an overview of the integration, refer to our article on how to enable and use the ADP Workforce Now Integration.

Lever-ADP Field Mapping

The following field mapping chart outlines the fields used by the Lever-ADP Workforce Now integration.

Additional fields can be passed from Lever to ADP Workforce Now for pre-population by setting up an 'ADP Integration Form' profile form and/or by adding custom fields to the Requisition object in Lever. Please make sure that the fields configured in Lever match the data type and values configured as listed in the chart below. Also note that configuring your profile forms and/or requisition custom fields is a one-time setup.

Setting up profile forms

 

This optional step can only be completed in Lever by a user with Admin or Super Admin level access.
  • Navigate to Settings > Forms 
  • Add a new form titled “ADP Integration Form”
  • Include all the fields that you would like to send to ADP
  • Add the form to the desired candidate profile and fill out the form

Refer to our article on Forms to learn how to set up a profile form and add it to a candidate profile.

For example, if you want to pass ‘gender’ and ‘salutation’ fields, you would do so by following the above steps and as shown in the screenshot below:

Adding custom fields to a requisition

 

This optional step can only be completed in Lever by a user with Admin or Super Admin level access.
  • Navigate to Settings > Requisitions
  • Add the custom requisition fields (from the chart below) that you would like to send to ADP

Refer to our Requisitions help article to learn more about set-up and manage requisitions.

For example, if you want to pass the ‘ADP Employment Type’ field, you would do so by following the above steps and as shown in the screenshot below:

Passing ADP dropdown fields

For any field of type “dropdown” in ADP, the dropdown values in ADP must match the dropdown values configured in Lever. The Lever-ADP Integration can accept ADP dropdown values in three forms:  

  • Value Description
  • Code Value
  • Short Name

For example, if you want to add dropdown value for the ADP Job Code field, which maps to a custom requisition field in Lever, the dropdown values can be passed in any combination of the following ways:

  • Value Description: DA - Data Analyst
  • Code Value:  DA
  • Short Name: Data Analyst

In the screenshot below, notice how the three values have been passed in three different ways:
