After every successful synchronization (both for creating and updating), a status report will be sent via email to the user who have initiated the synchronization.

EngagedlyStep 8

Adding an employee in Gusto

Updating user demographics can only be done through the Engagedly application at the moment. Follow the instructions here to update user demographics for individuals or a number of users at one go.

EngagedlyStep 9

Field mappings

These are the field mappings in the current system. However, the field mappings can be implemented based on client requirements later.

Along with the field mappings, the client has to provide the settings like whether they want to

  • Sync only the active Employees
  • Sync all the Employees (active, dismissed)
  • Sync all the Department, Managers, Job titles, and locations details


  • Dismissal of employees in Gusto is considered as BLOCKED Employees under Engagedly.
  • Fields like Level, Gender, Secondary Phone Number, Business Unit, HR Managers, Secondary Managers,
  • Ethnicity are not mapped in Engagedly.
EngagedlyStep 10

Synchronizing employee accounts

Based on these details from the client, the engineering team will integrate the process of syncing all the Employee accounts from Gusto to Engagedly. A CRON job will be implemented on a daily basis. So that, the Employee accounts in Gusto will be up to date in the Engagedly application.

  • Adding a new employee
  • Updating the existing employee details
  • Blocking or dismissing the employees
  • Editing the Department, Job Titles and other employee information present in your field mapping will be synced on the next scheduled CRON job.


EngagedlyStep 11

1. An employee exists on Engagedly with the following information:

  • FirstName: Jonathan
  • LastName: Smith
  • Email: John.Smith@gusto.com

In the above scenario, neither a name nor email match would be found.

EngagedlyStep 12


At the time of creating an organization, we can select either Employee ID or EMAIL ID as the Unique identifier to identify the users for the sync process.

  • For the above scenario, we can select the Unique identifier as Employee ID. Before initiating the sync process, you need to get the Employee ID for that particular user and Map it manually in Engagedly.
  • Employee ID can be copied from URL, as shown in the below attachment
EngagedlyStep 13
  • Copied Employee ID has to be added in Engagedly Employee ID field
  • Now you can initiate the Sync process, and employee details will be updated.
