To configure your Visma Nmbrs integration, a Visma Nmbrs username and token is required.
How the token can be created is described in the following article:

The created token must be assigned an API Template. How such a template can be created is stated here:

Contract departments

Determine contract department: This controls whether the contract department of employees in our system is determined by the employee's department or cost center in Visma Nmbrs.

Cost centers / Departments

Depending on the setting for determining the contract department of employees, you need to link all cost centers/departments from Visma Nmbrs to a department in Shiftbase. It is also possible to indicate that employees working in certain cost centers/departments should not be imported.

Do not forget to press the Save Button on every page.

Contract types

For any contract type available within Visma Nmbrs, map the corresponding contract type within Shiftbase. Any contract type from Shiftbase can be linked to Hourly employee or Fixed hours in Visma Nmbrs.


Next, it is important that all Visma Nmbrs employees are mapped. We automatically try to associate existing employees within your account. If no match can be found, employees will automatically be set to Add. There are four categories in which the Visma Nmbrs employees could come back.

  • Unmapped employees: The employees who are not yet mapped and can be added.

  • Mapped employees: The employees who are already mapped within your account.

  • Excluded employees: Employees identified/detected, that should not be imported. This can be specified by the given settings in contract department/contract type or manually be set for employees.

  • Inactive employees: All inactive employees or employees who have reached their end date in their contract are hidden by default. You can view these employees using the dropdown button on the right.

💡Tip: Here employees will be sought out with corresponding email address, SSN or employee number within your account. When multiple Visma Nmbrs integrations are active within your account. Please note that employee number must be unique across the entire account. Employees with the same employee number will overwrite eachother in the integration.

💡Tip: When an employee leaves the company, it is wise not to synchronise the employee in the integration anymore. This can be done by setting the employee to not import in the integration. You can do this by going to Employees and click on the employee's name and choose Don't import.

Synchronisation settings employees

For all mapped employees within your Visma Nmbrs integration, you can define which level of synchronisation should be performed for that employee:

  • Import data only: For the employee, no worked hours will be forwarded to Visma Nmbrs.

  • Import data and export hours: Default setting, employee data will be imported from Visma Nmbrs into your account, worked hours are being exported.

  • Export hours only: No employee's personal or contract data will be updated. Only the worked hours will be forwarded to Nmbrs.

When the contract synchronization is done by the Visma Nmbrs intergration, the field Description is not usable for notes. Any changes to the Visma Nmbrs environment can delete made descriptions.

💡Tip: The synchronisation level will automatically be set for employees when contracts are managed by Visma Nmbrs. Mapped employees will automatically be set to Only export payrolls when a new / modified contract is detected in which the import settings state a Contract types or Department is set to Do not import.

Cost centers

To correctly process the hours worked by your employees, you need to indicate for each department within your account what the corresponding cost center is in Visma Nmbrs for processing hours in this department. Here you can indicate that hours for a specific department should always be booked on the default cost center for the employee or that hours should not be exported.

Wage/Hour components

It is possible to submit the wage components kilometers & meals for an employee to Visma Nmbrs as wage components. To do this, simply select the appropriate external pay component from Visma Nmbrs at the pay component in our system.

Whether or not linking a hourly component from your account to an external component from Visma Nmbrs ensures that hours booked on these components can be forwarded to Visma Nmbrs. You should ensure that all components used in time tracking are linked to an external component to ensure correct and complete payroll of your employees.

For a number of hour components for hourly employees you can check: add surcharge. If this is checked for a particular component, the number of hours booked on this component will be added to the number of hours worked by the employee. The hours on the booked component are then in fact treated in the same way as surcharges for a permanent employee.
