Formstack Documents uploaded to employee file in BambooHR - error with Category field

Hi There, 

I am wanting to have a merged document from Formstack Documents (webmerge) to be uploaded to BambooHR as a file under the employee’s profile in documents.

The issue is when I go to create the zap and select upload file and pick an employee, I have to select a category and there is no option to pick a category.

I select the custom option and choose something from the document but it still fails for me.

Hi @Workco Stef 

Try clicking the Refresh Fields button after selecting an Employee.


If you still need help, you can open a ticket with Zapier Support here:


Does the BambooHR account need any special account permissions?

Some actions require a certain level of permissions to use them.
For example, the "Respond to Time Off Request" action can only be used by users who are able to approve time off requests.
Here are some helpful articles from BambooHR that describe how to configure permissions:
