Here are some useful guidelines to set up everything for our new team members with the onboarding issue.
If Google Sheets or Docs are mentioned, these will be shared with you on Google Drive.
- **Add team member to availability calendar**
Make a new "all-day" event on the day the new team member starts "[Name] joining
as [Job title]". Make sure to select the calendar as GitLab Availability and not your own.
- **Give team member access to the GitLab availability calendar**
Go to your calendar window, under my calendars move your cursor over the calendar
and click the dropdown triangle. Select calendar settings and go to "Share this
calendar" in the top of the window. Enter the GitLab email address and scroll
down to set the permission setting to "make changes to events" Then save in the
lower left corner.
- **Add blank entry to team page**
Login to []( and go to the www-gitlab-com project. In
the left menu click "Files" and select the folder called "source". Continue by
clicking the folder "data" and select the file called team.yml. In the top right
corner you can click "edit" to make edits to the code. Scroll all the way down
and copy-paste the code of the previous blank entry to the team page. Edit the
fields to the right info of the new hire and find the right job description on
the [Jobs]( page.
**Note** _This can be tricky, so if you run into trouble reach out to some of
your awesome colleagues in the #questions (channel) on Slack_
- **Add entry to Team Call agenda**
Open the Team Agenda google doc, and on the starting day add an Agenda item:
"[Hiring manager name]: Welcome [name new team member] joining as [job title]"
as the first item on the agenda
- **Invite to team meeting and GitLab 101 meeting**
Go to the team call meeting on the starting date of the team member and the next
scheduled GitLab 101 in the Availability calendar. Click on "edit event" to open.
On the right enter the team member's GitLab email address in the "add guests"
section and click save. When asked select "all events" to add to all scheduled
meetings and "send" out the invitation.
- **Order business cards**
Go to the "Notes" field in BambooHR and enter the info needed for the Business Cards.
Once every week/few days or how often needed, run the "Business Cards order" report in the Reports - My Reports menu of BambooHR.
Email our partner to order new business cards and add the info for the cards to
be ordered. Include the address of the team member (found in BambooHR) and inform
our partner to _**ship the cards directly to that address**_. Double check the
info that is sent with the preview before approving the print.
- **Add team member to Expensify (only with employees)**
Login to [Expensify]( and go to "Admin" in the
top menu. Select the right policy based upon the entity that employs the new team
member. Select "People" in the left menu. Select "Invite" and add the GitLab email.
Edit the message to be sent for the employee. Click "invite".
- **Add team member to Beamy**
Login in to access the settings for the [Beam](

to find the newly addedd email. Check the box for "Auto connect".

Log into Egencia and go to the menu option "manage users". Choose "new user account" and fill in the passport name of the new team member.
As username choose the same handle as on our dev page. Enter the GitLab email address and uncheck the newsletter box.
