As a reminder, Kronos released a technical advisory on 6/24/14 for Workforce Central® Suite v7.0. It's not a huge change; it simply changes the name of Workforce Operations Planner to Workforce Budgeting. This does NOT affect product functionality, but does change the user interface, and user documentation. The name change will be updated in the online help for Workforce Central beginning with version 8. If you can't find your Operations Planner - try changing your search to Workforce Budgeting.

So recently we introduced a series of blogs talking about how to get more from the basic schedule application in Workforce Timekeeper. In this entry, we will talk about schedule patterns. We won't be going through the basics of building a pattern, or applying a pattern to an employee's schedule. We are assuming you already know that. For now, here is a quick review.

Kronos Basic Scheduler

Would you like to get the most out of Kronos’ Basic Scheduler?

Getting the most out of Kronos' Basic Scheduler makes sense. The jump to the Advanced Scheduler is a hefty investment in money and time. By time, I am not just talking about the length of implementation; I’m talking about the major change management involved, including training and developing buy-in from your employees.

So, what makes you wonder?  What makes you dig?  What gives you that itch?  You know, the one you just can't get rid of until a problem is solved or an answer provided?  In the WFC world, we all know about the IT guy that dives into the application looking for every bug that exists, then about ways to resolve it.  Like a terrier going after a gopher, they dive into a hole, digging through with relentless energy.
