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.
