Platform Types

We now designate platforms with a type, which can be one of two values: payroll and time_and_attendance. Almost all platforms are payroll. The platforms that are designated time_and_attendance are those that return shifts data but do not support payroll jobs such as direct_deposit_switch and paystubs. Platforms that support both shifts and payroll jobs are considered payroll platforms.

On the list platforms endpoint, the optional type query parameter can be used to list only platforms of the specified type.

On the search endpoint, the optional platform_type query parameter can be used to find only employers/platforms that support the specified type.

On the create link token endpoint, the optional platform_type can be added to the request body. This will cause Link to search only for employers/platforms of the specified type.
