BambooHR Integration Setup

Setting Up Motivosity with BambooHR

Step 1: In Motivosity go to Setup->Integration. Click on the ‘Create BambooHR Webhook URL’. This will do two things: 1) Create an authorized Bamboo HR access token in the ‘API Authorizations’ list and 2) Generate a URL that you will copy and paste into the Bamboo Webhook Settings area.

Step 2: In Bamboo->Settings->Account->Webhooks, click on ‘Add Webhook’

Step 3: Name the webhook and choose the following fields to monitor:

Step 4: Choose the following fields to post:

  • Employee #
  • Status
  • First Name
  • Middle Name
  • Last Name
  • Preferred Name
  • Birth Date
  • Work Phone
  • Work Email
  • Hire Date
  • Department
  • Location
  • Job Title
  • Country
  • Supervisor ID
Step 5: Choose 'JSON' as the format

Step 6: Paste the URL from Motivosity Setup->Integration->BambooHR into the 'Post to URL' field.

Step 7: Decide on frequency. We recommend choosing '6pm' under 'Hour'. This will cause data to be synchronized every day at 6pm.

Dealing with future hires

If you don't want a future hire to sync into Motivosity yet, just don't enter their email address into Bamboo until their hire date.

Configuring and Using the Motivosity Google Chrome Extension

Now that your Motivosity account is up and running, there are some sweet things you can do to enjoy and streamline your giving and receiving.

To add the Chrome extension, first, go to this link.

In the top right of the main window, you'll want to click the prompt to 'ADD TO CHROME' 

Next, you'll see a small prompt appear near the top of your browser asking if you really want to add Motivosity. You know you want to, so click Add Extension.

From there, you may or may not notice, but a small little MV square will show up next to your other Chrome extensions. Give that a push and you'll have the ability to start the login process.

Your company may support SSO, if that's the case, you'll want to enter your address ex:

If your company doesn't support it or you don't know the address, don't fret - you can still log in using the default

After inputting your login credentials you'll be greeted with a baby version of Motivosity that allows you to easily give appreciations while surfing the web and watching epic fail compilations on YouTube.

Similar to in-app appreciations, you can search for peers, leave a thank you, and link that thanks to a company value. After that, it's just up to you to decide how much, using what money, and if you want it to be private or not.

Submit that appreciation!

Force Delete User Function

When you delete a user, their account will continue to exist for three days in the Deleted User Report found on the Insights page of your administrator account.

Sometimes you really just need a user gone forever NOW!

If that's the case, go to that Deleted User Report found on the left side of your Insights page.  You should see something like this.

Press that red Force Delete button but be warned, if you go through with this, it is non-reversible! 

Just to double check, you'll be prompted to confirm the action. If you press yes, they'll be gone for good.

Motivosity and Slack

Motivosity offers an integration with Slack. The reason for this integration is simple: Slack users do much of their communicating in the tool and recognizing someone from within the Slack application is a natural flow.

To enable slack for your team, go to Integrations under your Setup Page.

You should see a number of different things you can integrate with - go ahead and click on Slack.

You will now see an 'Add to Slack' button that will hand you off to Slack to finish the setup.

Next, you'll want to authorize usage and select a chat group where Motivosity appreciations will appear. (Example: #general)

Once authorization is complete, mv-slack will be available to your team. What this means is that team members can give recognition by typing '/mv' and then the recognition.

The format is as follows:

/mv Person's Name. Note of appreciation. $money #company value

The $money and #company value are optional. If you need help, type /mv help and you'll see the following image:

You can also see your current giving balance by typing this:

/mv balance

Benchmark Dashboard

We are happy to announce the new benchmarking dashboard. This dashboard will compare your culture drivers with other peer companies and tell you where your company fits.

The Benchmark Dashboard has two main categories: Activity and Engagement and Satisfaction.

Underneath Activity there are two categories:

  1. Appreciations Per Person - this is how many appreciations, on average, each person received in your company last month. A goal of 2.5 is recommended
  2. % Receiving Thanks - this is the percentage of people who received a thanks in your organization last month. A goal of 85% is recommended.

Underneath Engagement and Satisfaction there are six categories: These questions are based off of the survey that the users are asked to fill out 3/4 times a year.

  1. Appreciation last 7 days - Survey Question 1
  2. My Boss Cares - Survey Question 2
  3. Friend at work - Survey Question 3
  4. Loyalty to the company - Survey Question 4
  5. Company Referability - Survey Question 5
  6. Agree with company values - Survey Question 6

The dashboard itself contains comparison low score, high score, average score, your score, your percentile, and the target. Share this with your exec teams and let us know your interest in additional benchmarks.

Motivosity Point of Contact

On the Setup -> Preferences page, there is now a field for 'Motivosity Point of Contact'.This information will be used to help communicate with the right person in a few circumstances such as:

  • Who to talk to about account issues such as when someone wants their email changed or wants an account created
  • Who to deliver system-related information to such as when a user's email is bouncing
