Installation & Usage Guide for the Freshteam - Jibble Integration 


Pre-Installation To-Do

Before you set up the integration, please note the following - 

  • 1-Way Sync Caution - This is a 1-way sync from Freshteam to Jibble, so once you set up the integration, please make sure that you do not edit any employee data directly on Jibble.

  • Group Set Up Condition (if you have Departments on Freshteam and want that to be reflected on Jibble) 

    • Before installation - Go to People > Create a Group to set up groups on Jibble. Please make sure that you name  Groups in your Jibble account with the same spelling and case as Departments on Freshteam. For example, if you have Sales and Marketing as Departments on Freshteam, please make sure that you create groups named Sales and Marketing on Jibble. Note - These are case sensitive, so sales with a lowercase ‘s’ will not be synced correctly. 

    • After installation - If you create any new departments on Freshteam, please make sure you create a new group on Jibble as well to ensure correct updation of employee data. 

  • Freshteam > Jibble Role Matrix  - Depending on the hierarchy in Freshteam, the employee will automatically be assigned a role on Jibble, as displayed in the table below -
