Kronos Migration

Adobe Flash End-of-Life


After January 21st, 2021, Kronos will no longer be accessible on any major, up-to-date web browser.  

On January 1st, 2021, Adobe stopped supporting Flash, and this plugin will subsequently be blocked in all modern computer browsers.  This will have a significant impact on Kronos, the timecard management system used by USD.  To ensure all users can submit and approve timecards, please review the instructions below

Please note that this is not a permanent change.  USD will be migrating off of Kronos with the implementation of Workday, our the Employee Management system.  

Kronos Mobile App

The Kronos Mobile phone app is the primary, recommended method for submitting and approving your timecard after January 1st, 2021.  Use the instructions below to install the app, input your hours worked, and approve and submit your timecard.

Important notes about Kronos Mobile:

  1. You must use https when inputting the Kronos server location (see installation instructions below)
  2. Your username must be all lowercase
  3. Your timecard cannot be edited in the Kronos Mobile app after is has been approved

Installation

  • iOS
  • Android

How to Use

  • iOS
  • Android

Firefox ESR

Firefox ESR is a browser version that can be customized for an enterprise organization.  USD has developed a version of Firefox ESR that is compatible with Adobe Flash, and will allow access to Kronos via the web through January 2021. 

After January 31st, 2021, Firefox ESR is not guaranteed to continue working.  This is a technology limitation.  As such, Firefox ESR is not recommended as the primary method of entering time. 

  • Installation - Windows 10
  • Installation - Mac OSX
  • Bookmarks and Saved Passwords

Manual Timecards

If you are unable to fill out and submit your timecard via the Kronos Mobile app or Kronos Web using Firefox ESR, you can submit a manual timecard using the instructions below.

Please note that manual timecards take much longer to process.  Please use the Kronos Mobile app or Firefox ESR when able.
