How to establish your HRIS integration with ADP Workforce Now®

If your organization uses ADP Workforce Now® as your HRIS provider, you can easily integrate with Quantum Workplace so that your employee information updates automatically.

In this article:


In order to set up an HRIS integration with ADP Workforce Now®, you will need to be logged into Quantum Workplace as an Admin user and you will also need to be able to log into your ADP Workforce Now® account. You will begin from Quantum Workplace Administration and work through a few steps in both Quantum Workplace and ADP Marketplace. Then, the Quantum Workplace team will do some work behind the scenes to finalize your integration and contact you once it's established. 

Note on SSO (Single Sign-On) through ADP Workforce Now®

For most organizations that are currently using SSO (Single Sign-On), establishing an integration with ADP Workforce Now® will have no impact on a user's experience of logging into Quantum Workplace. 

For organizations that are not currently using SSO, when a user logs in to Quantum Workplace they will see the option to connect their Quantum Workplace account with their ADP Workforce Now® accounts. Then going forward, they will have the option to use their ADP Workforce Now® account to log into Quantum Workplace.

If you prefer to have SSO enabled through ADP Workforce Now®, please contact your Customer Success  Manager.

Await Confirmation from Quantum Workplace Team

Now that you have enabled your integration, Quantum Workplace needs to do some work on our end configure the integration. Your CSM will request an employee data file from you as a reference. Your CSM will be able to provide an estimate of the amount of time it will take the Quantum Workplace team to finalize the integration from here.

*Quantum Workplace recommends that you set Exit Surveys to automatically launch before the employee leaves the organization. By default, Quantum Workplace only receives the Exit Date from ADP for an employee after they leave the organization.  However, we now have a feature that enables pre-exit surveys.

**At this time, the "Function" field is not available via the Data Connector due to a limitation of ADP's API.
