F.A.Q.s

What are ‘Beta’ applications?

Applications in ‘Beta’ are often listed as such due to the following reasons:

  • The application has been released on the App Shop within the last month.
  • The application is undergoing a feedback phase with selected Rippling users.
  • The application is undergoing an expansion or engineering evaluation.

Please note, that even when an application is in ‘Beta’ you are still encouraged to use the application for your organization!

What are ‘Rippling’s Choice’ applications?

Rippling’s Choice applications have been evaluated by the Rippling team and selected as services of choice. This is often due to the level of integration with the third-party service and provides an enhanced experience when using the application through the Rippling platform.

How do I request for a new application to be added to the Rippling platform?

You may request a new application or an application enhancement from the bottom of the main page of the Rippling App Shop. This will link you to a form where you can provide more information regarding the application.

Please note, integrations typically move quicker when the third-party application is encouraging and supportive of the integration. In some cases, third-party applications will not enable any type of integration. For this reason, we highly encourage that you introduce our application partnerships team to the third-party application as well.

How do I request access to an application as an employee?

We understand employees need timely access to the applications they rely on. Admins are able to set up company-wide rules on how employees can request access to third-party applications from their company settings. Application-specific rules can also be set from the application’s settings page. If an employee is enabled to request access to applications for your organization, they will be able to do so from the application’s profile page in the App Shop.

How can I better showcase my application?

Rippling encourages application partners to provide the overview tag line, production description and tailored exclusive offers for the App Shop listing. Additionally, partners have the opportunity to provide media assets, such as photos and videos depicting the user of their product.
