Defaulting Onboarding Fields into Employee Central


A common pain point when integrating Onboarding to Employee Central is getting all of your fields to map correctly. In particular, there are some fields that need to be added in Onboarding just so that they can feed into Employee Central. Examples of these fields include the primary field for emergency contact and phone information, as well as national identification country and ID type. While I previously added these fields to a panel during the PHV step, my colleague @kayla.toelle recently showed me a method that allows you to default fields without adding to a panel.


In order to default fields from Onboarding to Employee Central you will need to create a new data list within Onboarding and map the created field to your desired Employee Central field. The following steps will walk you through the process.

Step 1: Create a New Data List for Your Default Field

For each field you want to default you will need to create a new field within Onboarding Data Lists. To do so navigate to Onboarding –> Settings –> Data Lists–> Lists–> Create


Once you select create you will be presented with a screen that allows you to create the field name for the values you would like to default.


Step 2: Add New Fields to the Data Dictionary EC Integration Folder

You will now need to add the field you created into the EC Integration folder within the Data Dictionary. To do so navigate to Onboarding–> Settings–> Data Dictionary–> Integrations–> EC–> Fields

Step 3: Map Fields Using Employee Central Field Mapping Tool

The last step is to map the defaulted Onboarding field to the correct EC field. To do so navigate to Admin Tools–> Field Mapping tool for Onboarding Employee Central Integration –> Select the field you added to data dictionary –> Map accordingly

  • Good Day everyone, just want to share my experience here, because i have been screwed by some of these fake casters…

    My Husband was DX with ALS for years and i went everywhere to get useful information that will help cure or suppress the disease. then i came across testimonies of those that took my hard earn money without any useful information or cure but they keep telling stories. about two months ago, a new staff was applied in my place of work and when He heard about my Husband Disease He was so remorseful and told me about Dr ozalogbo.but i felt it was still one of those internet guys so i didn’t call or text Dr ozalogbo. later that week, He asked me if i have heard from Dr ozalogbo and he gave me proof and reasons to try. well, lots of thanks to Dr ozalogbo because as i am writing this message, my Husband is CURED through the herbs that Dr ozalogbo sent to us. so after my experience, i decided to save some people from falling to the hands of SCAMS. thanks for your time and if you require the service of Dr ozalogbo you have to reach him via email: or


  • I worked with Doctor Odunga to get my ex husband back to me and also get pregnant with twins girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I met a testimony about Doctor ODUNGA how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at and later he gave me his Whats App number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. My husband left me because I was unable to give him a child for 9 years after our marriage. There was no contact between us anymore and I didn’t know how to get to him. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 2 days of contacting Dr. Odunga. The third day, I received a med treatment for fertility from this man, I became fertile. I and my husband reconnected that very week, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy  to say I am the mother of twins girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man. Contact his email at OR Whats App/Call +2348167159012 and you too will give a testimony too to help others
