The Kudos® Connector for ADP Vantage HCM® must first be purchased through the ADP Marketplace. ADP charges an annual connection fee to purchase the Kudos® Connector:
To purchase the Kudos® Connector from the ADP Marketplace, follow this link or search for “Kudos® Connector for ADP Vantage HCM®” in the ADP Marketplace. The email address on the account used to purchase the Connector must match the email address of the Kudos® Admin setting up the connector. On the Kudos® Connector for ADP Vantage HCM® listing, click Buy Now, then select the appropriate pricing tier for your organization and click Continue.
You will need to know your Kudos® account number to be able to complete the purchase. To find your Kudos® account number, navigate to the Gear Icon > Account > Overview and you will see your five-digit account number listed.
When prompted, enter your Kudos® Account Number and click Check. Once you receive the Success notification, click Continue. If you receive a Warning or Error message, please ensure you have entered your Kudos® account number exactly as shown in Kudos and try again. If you are still unable to validate your Kudos® account number, please reach out to our team at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Next, you will be able to choose whether you’d like to pay for the Kudos® Connector on your next ADP Invoice, or if you’d prefer to enter a new credit card. Click Continue, review your order and click Place Order. You will receive a copy of the receipt to your email address. Any billing inquiries related to purchasing the Kudos® Connector for ADP Vantage HCM® should be directed to the billing team at ADP.
You will now be able to see the Kudos® Connector in the MyApps section of your ADP Marketplace account and you are ready to move on to setting up your SSO and sync your users into the Kudos® platform from ADP!
Once you have successfully purchased the Kudos® Connector from the ADP Marketplace, you can now set up Single Sign On (SSO) and start user provisioning with ADP. This will allow your users to use their pre-existing ADP credentials to access Kudos® and allow Admins to simplify user provisioning.
To begin setting up ADP SSO, click on the Kudos® Connector in your ADP MyApps:
You will be prompted to consent twice on behalf of your organization. You must accept both consent requests in order to complete the integration.
After accepting both you will be directed to the Integration page on your Kudos® account. If the connector was successfully purchased and installed, you should not have to sign in to your Kudos® account at this step. If you are not redirected to your Kudos® integrations page, please visit this link to check the ADP Consent Manager to confirm your consent was recognized by ADP (shown below). If you do not see consent for the Kudos® Connector, please contact your Account Manager or reach out to us at email@example.com.
Once on the integrations page, you should see a green checkmark in the upper corner of the ADP widget with a grey “Edit” button at the bottom:
Click Edit. From the Edit screen, you can enable ADP Single Sign-On for your organization. Simply check the box for ADP Enterprise Single Sign On and click Save.
Once you click Save, your users will now be directed to your ADP sign-on page from your unique Kudos® platform URL, where they will log in with their ADP credentials to access Kudos®.
Once you have integrated the Kudos® Connector with your ADP account, you can begin provisioning your users. By starting the sync with ADP and Kudos®, you will be adding all active employees through ADP to Kudos®.
This integration is a one-way sync of employee information from ADP to Kudos®. This maintains all employee information entered in ADP as the system of record. Any changes made to this information in ADP will automatically be imported to Kudos®. New users will be added and terminated users will automatically be marked as archived in the Kudos® platform upon import. Employee information that will be pulled from ADP into Kudos® includes:
- Work Email
- Please note that you must use the Work Email field, even if the email is a personal email, for the integration to work properly.
- Employee Number
- External ID
- First and Last Name
- Job Title
- Office Phone Number & Extension
- Location: City Name
- Start Date
- Birthdate, without the year of birth
- Employment Status
To add all users to from ADP to Kudos®, navigate into the Integrations tab of your Kudos® account, and click Edit on the ADP integration.
From the Edit screen, you can enable user provisioning through ADP. Simply check the box for Start user sync with ADP Enterprise and click Save. This will sync all active users in ADP to Kudos®.
You will receive an email from Kudos® with the following information once your sync is complete:
- New Users Added
- Supervisors Created
- Users Updated
- Users Archived
- Users Re-Activated
New users will still need to be invited to join your Kudos® platform unless you have automatic invitations turned on in your settings. More information on inviting users can be found here: Inviting Users to Kudos®.
