How do I Add an Employee with the BambooHR Integration?

If you are using the BambooHR integration with TRAXPayroll, you will not see a button to add new employees in TRAXPayroll. All new employees must be added in BambooHR instead of TRAXPayroll. Once a new employee is added in BambooHR, they will sync through to Remote Link where you will see the option to add the employee into TRAXPayroll.
