Set up the Deputy integration

Set up the integration between Deputy and WhosOnLocation. You must have the Account Owner or IT Support user role assigned to access Integrations.

Before you set up your integration you will need to have a Deputy account that is fully set up. It should have your locations and employees all created and configured. Deputy can push information to WhosOnLocation so if there are employees in your Deputy account that aren't in your WhosOnLocation account, they can be automatically created. This does not work in reverse.

Enable the integration

Before importing data and configuring settings, you must first enable the Deputy integration.

  1. Go to Tools > Account.
  2. Select Integrations from the left-hand menu.

  3. Select the Deputy icon.
  4. Click Enable.

  5. Click Confirm on the confirmation pop-up.

You will be taken to the Enabled Integrations tab where you can now configure your integration.

Sync your Deputy account to WhosOnLocation

Before starting your sync, you will need to have your Deputy login detail available. You will need to work in both Deputy and WhosOnLocation to gather and enter the required information. 

From the Enabled Integrations tab:

    This will then display the Client ID and Secret. Copy the Client ID and Client Secret.

  11. Click Authorize Now. Clicking this will redirect you to your Deputy account to select your organization in Deputy that WhosOnLocation is authorized to receive data from.

  12. Select your organization, then click Authorize.


    You will then be redirected back to WhosOnLocation for your locations and employees in Deputy to be imported to and/or synced with your WhosOnLocation account.

    WhosOnLocation will display the number of locations and employees found in your Deputy account. Click Continue.

  13. Map your Deputy locations to your WhosOnLocation locations by dragging and dropping the location. Click Continue

    This will ensure your employees are added to the correct locations in WhosOnLocation and when they sign in using Deputy, they are signed into the correct locations.


    If you have any employees in Deputy that are not in WhosOnLocation you can choose to import them once synced.
  14. Click Import to import missing employees or Skip if this is not required. If your employees are already set up in your WhosOnLocation account, you will skip this step.
