Integrate Namely with 15Five
- Click on your avatar or profile picture up in your top right corner.
- Click on 'Company settings'.
- Scroll down to the 'Integrations' section on your left-hand navigation.
- Select 'Namely' and enter your Namely subdomain.
We will send your team login details and an invite to join 15Five.
Sync data automatically or manually
You can sync your data manually or have 15Five do this for you. If the automatic sync is enabled, changes will sync nightly. Here is a list of fields that we sync with:
- first & last names
- employee id
- location field
- reviewer (email)
Namely, by default, will import all the profiles that the API key can access. It is possible to limit the profiles that get imported from Namely by various criteria.
Inclusive filter options are:
Exclusive filter options are:
To add or remove any of the above filters for your company, please reach out to your Customer Success Manager or our Support Team.
Q: I do not see a Namely option on my 'Integrations' page.
A: If you do not see Namely active in your account, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help.
Q: Can we do a trial run of the Namely sync before turning on the full automatic sync?
A: Yes, we suggest doing a manual sync before turning on the automatic sync option. You will do this through the 'Integrations' page on your 15Five account. Click on 'Configure' and set up the integration. For the first import, leave the automatic sync checkbox unchecked. Leaving this box unchecked allows you to do a manual sync first. There is a preview step before finishing the sync- so don't worry about clicking manual sync as the import will not start right away. After reviewing the import details, you can choose to finish the sync or cancel if things are incorrect. After the first manual sync, feel free to check the automatic sync box for future syncs.
Q: Why didn't anyone get invited to 15Five? I just added invited them through my HRIS system.
A: If the 'Email invitation' checkbox is not checked on the Namely integration page, no invites will be sent out to people invited through Namely.
Q: Which people in Namely are included in the sync?
A: By default, all full time employees in Namely will be included in the sync unless otherwise specified by filters set by Support, your Implementation Specialist, or your Customer Success Manager. It is possible to filter employees by location, division, and/or email. If you want to exclude or only include certain groups please reach out for assistance before you attempt an import.
Q: When does 15Five sync with Namely when automatic sync is enabled?
A: The automatic Namely syncs kick off at 22:04 UTC and will sync for all customers one by one. We can not control when an individual company's sync will actually run. There is an email sent to all account admins after a Namely sync. The email will summarize the new accounts created, accounts updated, and accounts deactivated.
Q: Can we sync our vacations from Namely to 15Five?
A: Syncing vacations is not currently available with Namely.
