How to set up Robin + Rippling 

There are 3 parts to the setup steps: 

PART 1: Rippling set up 

  1. In Rippling, navigate to the Facilities page to locate the Robin Powered integration.

  2. Select Connect account.

  3. Select "I'm the Robin Powered admin, I'll install it." In order to connect Robin Powered to Rippling, you need to be the admin for your company's Robin Powered account.

  4. Review the app access rules and click Authorize. 

  5. Choose who should automatically get access to Robin Powered when they join Robin Powered and click Continue.

  6. Choose when users should get access to Robin Powered and click Continue. Next up, connect your Rippling account to Robin.

PART 2: Connect Rippling to Robin

1. Robin should open the Rippling integration connection page automatically or after you log in. 

2. Agree to the privacy policy & terms of service and then click Get started. Robin will begin syncing your user and building data from Rippling. 

3. Review your building information. Fill in the gaps to make sure it's correct and select Looks good. 


4. While Robin is syncing your data, return to Rippling to finish setting up your account. Click Continue > Finish set up in Rippling. 


5. For customers purchasing through Rippling, you'll see an "Add a payment method" step.  You can add a payment method now or skip it and add it when your trial period ends. (If you're an existing Robin customer, you can skip this step.) 2023-10-04_14-38-55.png

6. Click Finish set up in Rippling to complete your account setup. 


PART 3: Return to Rippling to complete the Robin app setup

1. After you've successfully connected your accounts, you have the option to set up Single Sign-on (SSO) for Robin or jump to the overview page instead.

Setting up SSO allows your employees to log in to Robin with one click. Before setting up SSO note the following:

  • Invited employees to Rippling before turning on SSO integration. Turning on SSO integration automatically disables the ability for users to log in using a username and password. 

  • Employees who currently have access to Robin will lose access until they have created a Rippling account. 


2. Decide if you want to allow other people in Robin to sign in to the Robin admin account. This provides a convenient way to centralize access to admin functionality across 3rd- party applications. 


3. If you don't have any group attributes set up yet you can create them now or click "Continue" to skip to the next step. 


We recommend testing Rippling's connection to Robin by logging in to Robin through Rippling by clicking "Connect via Rippling." Or click Continue to skip. 


After verifying the connection was successful, click Visit the app to check it out!
