BYU KRONOS system to enjoy upgrade

After nearly 12 years of service, BYU's Kronos time-keeping system will be upgraded Saturday, Nov. 22. This upgrade will allow many staff and student employees to take advantage of Internet technology to log their time directly from their computer workstations.

Feedback from Kronos supervisors in each department has determined that approximately 6,000 employees should use Web-based time entry, while another 7,500 will continue to use the existing time clocks located across campus. In addition, supervisors will have access to much-improved time-reporting and time-correction tools. Those using Web-based time entry from their individual workstations may also use time clocks to enter time. For employees authorized to work from home, Web-based time entry may also be used.

Kronos supervisors will train employees on which entry method they should use; supervisors will also have reporting tools that show the computer or clock from which an employee logged his or her time.

Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 19, staff and student employees can check to see if they have been granted Web-based entry rights by entering Route Y and selecting "Kronos" under the Stage section heading. If entering the Route Y login information allows access to Kronos, an employee is an authorized Web-based user. Otherwise employees will continue to use the time clocks.

Employees who are able to access Kronos in this test mode may also try the Web-based time entry and report options without affecting their regular time-reporting or payroll information until Nov. 22. On that day, the Kronos item will move to the Work section heading and the system will be live for time-reporting and payroll.

A demonstration of the Web-based time entry process is available by selecting the first item on the right side of the Payroll panel at http://finserve.byu.edu/Finserve.jsp?page=50.
