Paylocity is a cloud-based HR & Payroll provider for data-driven insights and engagement.

Integrations can only be set up by Admin users and are enabled per team. See our General Integration Information page for an overview of integrations and some recommendations when configuring new integrations.

Required Setup

Setting up the Paylocity integration requires an account with Paylocity. A Client ID, Client Secret, and your Company ID are required for setup, you can obtain these by contacting Paylocity and requesting API access—or you may already have them if you already requested API access.
