TriNet requires a Client ID and Secret, which you'll need to have provisioned for your account by the TriNet's team. You can get this provisioned for you by filling out this form.

1.) For the first step, select that you are a TriNet customer. For steps 2-6, answer basic business information about your company.

2.) For Step 7, there are two ways of answering, depending on your 3rd party platform:

If the platform you want to integrate with is a third-party pre-built integration, check Third-Party Pre-Built Integration:

Then for Steps 8-10:

  • Step 8: locate the proper category

  • Step 9: find the particular product you're integrating with

  • Step 10: press New Setup

If the the platform you want to integrate with is NOT a Third-Party Pre-Built Integration, select Custom Integration:

(A way to check is by clicking Third-Party Pre-Built Integration and seeing if it is on the list, and if it is not go back to Step 7 and select Custom Integration.)

  • Step 8: Select Other and fill out the name of the application you're integrating with.

  • Step 9: Provide TriNet details on the what need to be able to access in terms of data for the integration to work. These are the full permissions needed to sync all HRIS information with HelloTeam, you can remove ones which are not relevant for your use case.
