Kronos - Upgrades Coming in JulyPublished: May 18, 2018
Hello! Recently we communicated with you that Methodist is upgrading our Kronos application. Kronos is the system that records your time worked – in and out punches. This project will upgrade our current version 6.1 up to version 8.1 in a Kronos-hosted cloud environment. In addition, we will also make available the newest features that Kronos offers.
One of the new features is the ability to clock in/out using the current TeleTime (phone) or using a computer. Here are some of the features of each option available in late July:
- Using a computer to Clock In/Out and Transfer hours:
- You can actually SEE the names of the department, unit, or job that you are selecting. This should significantly improve the accuracy of recording worked hours in the right department.
- Rather than asking a manager to review or trying to use the rather cumbersome Teletime menus, you can view your timecard and PTO balances at the click of a mouse.
- Each week you will be able to review and approve your timecard
- Request PTO using the Kronos application – no paper!
- Using the updated TeleTime to Clock In/Out:
- You record your own name -recording is played back as confirmation when your employee ID is entered successfully.
- Allows user to change level of detail in the prompts - experienced users can streamline their clock in/out time, and less experienced users can hear more detailed instructions
- Once you set up your schedule, you can hear your schedule for a selected day or week
- Worked Hours review - you will be able to hear the total number of hours worked in the current pay period.
- Last time entered on TeleTime – forgot if you punched in or out? The new system will tell you when your last punch was.
Stay tuned for more information about the new timekeeping features, schedule, training and go-live. If you have any questions about the project, please reach out to a steering committee member or project team member.
Thank you for your time and attention.
