Kronos Timekeeper Recording Labor Account Transfers at Start of Shift

Dwain Lambrigger — Feb 2013

The labor account transfer has been recorded in Workforce Central as long as it’s been called Workforce Central! Having taught a few courses on different Kronos applications, I can tell you that is the truth. I also remember when teaching Workforce Timekeeper classes that the labor account transfer was generally taught from the middle or end of a shift; and unless asked, most classes didn't cover show how to record that same transfer if it occurred at the start of the shift.

When to release control - Kronos Managed Services or host your own

Bryan deSilva — Feb 2013

One of my 'hats' is Chief Evangelist of Really Neat Stuff. Now in old school corporate terms that's just an expansion of the IT guy, CIO and functional expert all mixed up like a good chocolate shake.

Kronos Workforce Timekeeper: Adding Comments and Notes to a Punch

Providing better information to a Kronos Timecard 

Managing timecards for your employees requires a lot of review and understanding. For example, when an employee forgets to punch, who will be adding that punch? More often than not, you are assigned that responsibility. Now, can you just add the punch with the time you thought the employee came to or left work? No, you need to confirm this with your employee. Once they confirm the time they arrived or left, you need to add that punch. Here is the catch.
