The Ambition FTP service provides organizations with the ability to programmatically send Ambition data to be processed and displayed across the platform... a perfect option for connecting data warehouses, proprietary systems, and a variety of third-party software existing in the market today.
You can enable as many FTP integrations as needed to capture your entire activity pipeline, the rule of thumb being that you will need one integration per system and/or dataset.
For example, if you wish to connect a database or phone system you will most likely need to enable and setup two FTP integrations.
In order to ensure an efficient FTP integration process we highly recommend working through each step of the provided checklist.
- What employee activities are you wanting to track within Ambition?
- What is your desired update frequency? What is your minimum update frequency?
- Across which systems is desired employee activity data stored?
- Do these systems provide an automated way to export data?
- Can you setup a recurring process to export and transmit data to Ambition's FTP server via POST request?
- If your process is interrupted can you be notified to diagnose and fix issue?
Can you prepare and transmit data adhering to the following requirements?
- CSV or JSON Format
- Daily Cumulative Totals or Records (see Data page for details)
- Unique Employee Identifier and Timestamp Contained Within Every Row/Record
- Not exceed a file size of 15MB
