Kronos is offered in two versions:

  • Basic (HTML): Works on most browsers, and with Macintosh, Windows, and Linux. It does not use Java or require any other plugins.
  • Full (Java): Requires a specific version of Java and works only on specific browsers and operating system versions.

Employees and supervisors: Can use the Basic (HTML) version for most tasks. You can enter time, enter earnings codes, check accruals, and approve time cards in the HTML version of Kronos.

You may occasionally need to access the full version of Kronos for advanced functions such as historical edits, the audit record of changes, creating reports, and creating or adjusting standard work schedules.

See the How-To procedures for the version of Kronos you're using:
