Setting Up Your Deputy Integration

How to 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 which is fully set up. It should have your locations and employees all created and configured. Deputy is able to 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.
