Kronos (FTL) upgrade to single interface, with downtime, June 17 & 18

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

Kronos, our vendor for the Fermilab Time and Labor (FTL) system will upgrade to the latest version, which will eliminate the need for different user interfaces (Flash and HTML).

WHEN WILL THIS OCCUR?

Kronos is expected to be unavailable between Wednesday, June 17 at 6 a.m. and Thursday, June 18 at 2 p.m. We will send you an email once the system is ready for your use.

WHAT IS THE IMPACT TO YOU?

After the upgrade:

  • There will be a single user interface for FTL that does not require Flash. Everyone (Windows and Mac users) will use this interface. Those of you who currently use the HTML-only version of Kronos will now use the regular version. Instructions for performing various functions are available on the FTL website, https://timecard.fnal.gov, under “FTL User Documentation.” (These instructions will be updated once the upgrade is complete.)
  • Beginning the week of June 22, the process for entering flex time will change as described in this knowledge article: https://fermi.servicenowservices.com/kb_view.do?sysparm_article=KB0013431
  • There are some minor interface changes, as described in the documentation at https://timecard.fnal.gov.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?

If you plan to be off for the rest of the week after Thursday at 2 p.m., be sure to submit your timecard prior to 6 a.m. on Wednesday.

After the upgrade, please refer to the user documentation, including UI changes, on the FTL website, https://timecard.fnal.gov, under “FTL User Documentation.”  Also, for the week of June 22, be aware of the changed process to enter flex time.
