Import Plugin

Import Plugin

The Import Plugin lets you import and synchronize data from HR systems to tenfold

What Does the Import Plugin Do?

The Import Plugin enables tenfold to import datasets from other systems (commonly HR programs) and to automatically detect changes in these systems and thus make the necessary adjustments. Data can be imported from files, databases or through script calls on the source system.

With the Import Plugin, you no longer have to ingest the same data twice into different systems. The employee data in your HR application is synchronized regularly withtenfold to ensure the latest information is always at hand. tenfold detects changes automatically, e.g. when a person moves to a different department, and adapts the affected user’s permissions accordingly.

Not only does this reduce the efforts required for the upkeep of HR data, it also prevents errors that commonly occur when data is ingested manually and further ensures that all types of changes to HR information are processed correctly.

No Security Gaps

Automatic detection of orphaned accounts through regular synchronization boosts security.

Flexible Integration

Import and export allow indirect exchange with applications that do not have a suitable API.
