With the Gusto and Buildertrend integration, you can sync employees and send time clock shift data directly from Buildertrend into Gusto for payroll, eliminating the need for double entry.
Customers who join Gusto from Buildertrend will receive Gusto payroll free for their first 3 months.
This integration is available to Buildertrend’s Core and Pro customers and you’ll need Full Admin permissions to set it up.
Connect your accounts
Your Gusto and Buildertrend accounts are now linked. In your Buildertrend Internal Users dashboard, Gusto is added to the Payroll tab.
You can sync current Buildertrend Users to Gusto and also create a new employee in Gusto from Buildertrend. Buildertrend lets you sync your team members individually or in bulk. Only hourly (and not salaried) employees can be synced.
Sync current employees
Once a User is matched to their employee profile in Gusto, Buildertrend’s Internal Users page changes their "Gusto Payroll" status to “Synced.” For the sync to work, a User’s email in Buildertrend must be the same as their Gusto personal email. If the sync fails, you may need to update their email address in Buildertrend.
Add a new employee to Gusto from Buildertrend
If you have employees who have Buildertrend accounts but have not been added to Gusto payroll, follow these steps to invite them to create their own Gusto account and add them to payroll.
Once you add an employee to payroll, they’re invited via email to set up their Gusto employee account. Once complete, their "Gusto Payroll" status in Buildertrend changes to "Synced."
Buildertrend’s “Gusto Payroll” statuses
In the Buildertrend Users dashboard, review your employees’ sync status in the “Gusto Payroll” column.
"Pending Setup in Gusto"
The User’s data has been sent to Gusto. Next you must add the employee to payroll in Gusto.
This status appears when an employee has multiple jobs in Gusto. Follow these steps to assign them to the one you want to apply to their next payroll. Repeat these steps if you need to change later
The user is fully synced and their time clock activity in Buildertrend can be synced to Gusto.
To send your teams’ time clock data to Gusto for payroll, follow these steps. Buildertrend only sends hours worked to Gusto. If you change anyone’s compensation, be sure to update their pay rate in Gusto.
Head over to your Gusto dashboard to run payroll and pay your team on time.
To make other changes to shift data, select the shift and choose from the Checked Actions dropdown.
Mark as Synced to Gusto Payroll
Use this if you’ve already manually added an employee’s time to Gusto. It changes the sync status to Synced in Buildertrend. This button does not sync the user's time to Gusto—it only updates the status in Buildertrend.
If a shift has been synced to Gusto, this action removes the time from Gusto.
Disconnect a user
This disconnects an individual administrator from the integration but leaves the Buildertrend account linked with Gusto.
Disconnect your company’s accounts
This completely disconnects the Buildertrend Account from Gusto and the integration will no longer sync data.
