Kronos Upgrade & Downtime

On Tuesday, December 6, 2016, Financial Services and ITS will begin upgrading the KRONOS Time Card System. The upgrade will take place between 7:00 pm Tuesday, December 6, 2016 and 7:00 pm Wednesday, December 7, 2016. During this time, users will not be able to login to or access the Kronos application.

Financial Services and ITS requests all departmental users logoff KRONOS by 6:00 pm Tuesday, December 6, 2016.

For those employees who swipe at KRONOS Time Clocks, they should continue to use the clocks during the downtime. The punches will be stored in the clocks and will be sent to the time cards once the system is back online.

For employees who time stamp or enter their in and out time via the web application, they should keep detailed track of all hours worked during the downtime. Managers may need to enter this time once the application is available.

Also, we are excited to announce that the new version of Kronos is Java free and compatible with all web browsers (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, etc.)!

All of the current functionality will remain the same, such as recording your start and stop times, as well as entering your exception hours, such as Sick, Vacation, Personal or Holiday time.

Documentation and manuals are available on-line at
