ADP Integration - Existing Customer Subscription Setup

Subscribe to the Connector Edition

A Litmos LMS Connector Edition is available for existing Litmos customers to purchase on the ADP Marketplace. Once logged into the ADP Marketplace as an ADP Administrator, click on "Buy Now" to advance to the checkout:



On the ADP checkout screen, the Connector subscription price associated with the users included in the license will display as fee due at checkout. 




To proceed, press the "Continue" button and the billing details will display:




Once the billing details are completed and the "Continue" button is selected, review the order once more before clicking "Place Order":




Once the order is successfully placed, the ADP Administrator will advance to a Litmos web-page where the existing Litmos account can be connected to the Litmos app that was just purchased on the ADP Marketplace. Click "Connect to My Account" to proceed.




This is where existing Litmos customers will enter a username and password associated to a Litmos Account Owner profile in order to connect and authorize the ADP integration. The Litmos account web-domain will also be required. The Account Owner credentials entered into this page should be associated to a dedicated integration user profile in Litmos. If there is no integration user set-up as an Account Owner in Litmos, it is recommended to set one up and use this profile's credentials to complete the integration connection and authorization.



Once this is entered and the "Connect To My Account" button is clicked, the ADP administrator will advance to the "My Apps" tab where the Litmos app tile can be accessed for single-sign on.




Click on the Litmos app tile to SSO into Litmos from the ADP Marketplace:



NOTE: The Litmos username for this person is created from the ADP work email address. If there is no work email address on the employee profile in ADP, the ADP Associate ID will be used as the person's Litmos username. This logic applies for all users works the same way for the ADP employee sync. Once a user successfully signs into Litmos via single-sign on, a back-end connection is made between the employee in ADP and the new Learner profile in Litmos.

NOTE: User Consent is required to single-sign on into Litmos for the first time. This is different from application consent.


NOTE: ADP will also require Litmos LMS application consent by an ADP Administrator if the ADP Employee Sync will be used. Use the ADP Consent Manager to complete these steps.

Assign the Litmos app to ADP employees in the ADP Marketplace

As an ADP administrator, navigate to the "Manage Apps" --> "Assign Apps" and perform the assignment of the Litmos app to ADP employees.

NOTE: Please contact ADP if you do not see your ADP employees in the ADP Marketplace by emailing



If you do not wish to use the ADP Marketplace for single-sign on into Litmos, an alternative option is to setup a "Quick Link" to Litmos on the Home tab in ADP. First, log into ADP as an Administrator with Practitioner access, and then click on the user profile drop-down in the top right corner to access the Configuration menu item:




Once the Configuration menu is opened, an Administrator Portal will show options to configure Pages, Home and Theme. Open "Pages" and then select "Quick Links" to advance to the Quick Links setup:




Once the Quick Links setup is opened, click on the "add" sign to open the Quick Link editor. This will open an ADP HTML Editor, where an image icon can be configured to have an HTML link underneath the icon.

Workforce Now customers will place this link underneath the icon:

Vantage customers will place this link underneath the icon: 




Once the Quick Link is configured and saved, the Quick Link will display on the "Home" tab under the "Quick Links" panel in ADP for employee access:
