Kronos - Do you want Excel with that Timekeeper?

Sep 13, 2013 2:00:00 AM

Customers spend a lot of money implementing and/or upgrading Kronos, so it only makes sense to get as much out of it as possible. So, what else can we do with it? Do we total the data and put it in a spreadsheet? Is it better presented as on a Report, in a Genie, or as a CSV file? What information is going to be beneficial to extract; what’s better to put in an email? What else can we do with Genies?

EXCELlent Reporting with Kronos Workforce Central

Jan 21, 2013 9:06:00 AM

Did you know that some reports are formatted especially for Excel?  By this I mean that they are formatted in rows and columns that can transfer information to a spreadsheet easily.  If you cut and paste Kronos Workforce Central report information into excel with the normal reports, you have to do an awful lot of clean up to make the columns work.

Creating a Kronos Genie to Check Employee Import Data

Jun 19, 2012 8:01:00 AM

Checking the Kronos Employee Import

Remember Genies can be created to show lots of employee based info.  If you are in the Kronos implementation phase and having troubles with the Employee Import, you should create a genie with as much of the important employee information as you can.  This way an average user can easily Select All  / Export to Excel and they can tell you what is wrong with it.

Kronos Workforce Central New Timecard Features

Jan 18, 2012 1:30:00 PM

We are continuing with the New Feature Series for Workforce Central (WFC). Several key improvements made in the newest version of WFC are in the timecard. Kronos evolves the timecard in every new version of WFC. Some of the changes are small, and others more significant. Gaining perspective from another industry, I think about how watching television has evolved and advanced over time. There are some similarities to the evolution of both the WFC Timecard and TV. Both allow you to do more, are easier to use, and save time.

Kronos Supplemental Pay; A Sea Story

Oct 24, 2010 8:38:00 PM

The year I turned 12 I went to sea. Yeah… I know, this sounds like one of those stories Grandpa would tell you when you needed to be reminded how soft you kids have it now and how much harder it was then. I will confess my motive in telling you this story in a moment but for now just realize it it is true—my mother really did put me on a plane from California to British Columbia, all by myself, to work aboard the Lloyd B. Gore, a 128ft, 250 ton tugboat in the summer of 1979. I learned two big lessons. First, don’t ever tell immigration officials the purpose of your visit is to ‘go to sea and work on the docks’ (something about work visas, child labor trafficking and other sensitivities). Second, I learned about the value of Differential (aka: Supplemental) Pay first hand.

My father, who was actually legally working there on an engineering project, came to the airport to pick me up. After being paged, he went to the little room with the big lights in the back of the customs office and completely refuted my story with his own explanation about me being here merely to visit him for a few weeks. He then took me to the dock where the Lloyd B. Gore was tied up and handed me over to the Captain and his wife and, after a couple of laughs about the misunderstanding at the airport, left me to work on the boat.
