How it Works?

The integration between Roots and BambooHR is easy to set up (takes <15 mins) and serves the following purposes:

– New users in BambooHR are automatically authorized for Roots when a matching user is found in Slack.

– User information will update regularly without manual interview. If the reporting structure changes or a user is added/removed/modified in BambooHR, Roots will automatically reflect those changes without any manual input from admins.

– Tasks can be auto-assigned in Slack based on user department, location, and start date pulled from BambooHR
