Today we will be demonstrating how to use Kronos and how to use the electronic timesheet system for Dartmouth College student employees, you will receive an email from Kronos that contains a link to the login page.
After you have been hired for an hourly paid student position, be sure to create a new bookmark in your browser with the URL included in the email, after entering this URL in your web browser, you will be redirected to the standard Dartmouth single sign-on form and to your net ID.
The password is normal and press Enter, congratulations, you’re in Kronos, the web-based Kronos program requires the installation and use of Java, if you have trouble downloading or installing the software, please contact the computing help desk.
Once you’ve logged into Kronos, you will see a large workspace with several tables, there should be a label at the top of the largest table that says my time card is where you will record the beginning and end of your shifts at work.
Do not make any changes to the pay code or amount fields, the field is where you will enter your start time for each shift, click on the field for the correct date and type in the time at which you started your shift to record the end of your shift.
Enter the time you left work in the corresponding out field to complete your shift entry, you must select the corresponding job for the time, you’ve entered, each of your jobs will be listed in the transfer field, simply click on the drop down arrow and select the job for which you would like to record time, you must remember to select your job each shift.
Even if you only have one job, Kronos will not remind you, this is the only way your employer will know what time you are working in each job, if your job is not visible in the drop down, contact your supervisor, make sure you always save your time sheet by clicking the Save button in the upper left corner of the time sheet.
Kronos does not autosave all data entered, but not saved will be lost, if you are a tutor working for the academic Skills Center or the Toyota Clearinghouse, you must create a comment on each shift that you work to let your employer know which student you are tutoring in which subject to create a comment.
Click on the out field of the shift that you’re recording and select add comment, scroll down in the top section of the pop up screen until you find the tutoring entry or type T to jump directly to the tutoring entry highlight tutoring by clicking on it.
Then click in the note text box below to enter the course number and name of your tutee, click on OK to finish the comment, once a comment has been successfully created in Kronos, you will see a small yellow notepad icon in the outfield Chronos uses military time.
Thus entering one o’clock corresponds to 1 a.m. to enter time worked in the afternoon or evening, you may either enter, the time using normally would with the letter P at the end of the entry or you may use the military form of the time, in this form at 3 o’clock p.m. would enter as 1,500.
After you’ve entered your time in the in or out field, Kronos will change it to the appropriate AM or PM value, check the daily total to verify the year hours match, please note that there are two in/out and transfer columns per date row as long as you select the correct date, it doesn’t matter which field you use.
Kronos will automatically adjust the entry to the first open field for the selected date, if you need to enter more than two shifts for a given date, you can manually add a row by clicking on the plus button on the left of a row.
This will generate a new row with the same date as the one you clicked on, if you’d like to delete all of the data in a particular row, click on the X button on the left end of the row in question.
Some students may work in areas using Kronos time clocks, these students will record, they’re in and out times by swiping their ID card, if you work in one of these areas, your employer will give you additional instructions.
All student employees are expected to record the amount of time that they work, each time they come into work, do not preload shifts even if you have a defined work schedule things, do change and it’s best to record.
As you go to avoid mistakes, that would require an involved correction process, remember recording time that you did not, work is fraud and you may be subject to legal prosecution or an honor code violation by default.
Kronos displays your timesheet data for the current pay period, each pay period is 2 weeks long beginning on a Sunday at 12 a.m. and ending two Saturdays later at 11:59 p.m.
Employers receive reports of time worked after a given pay period ends, your time sheet must be completely accurate before your supervisor will contact you, if Corrections need to be made to your time sheet after Saturday, you will then only have through Monday morning to make the necessary adjustments.
If the changes are made after Monday morning, your upcoming paycheck will be affected, make sure you always save your time sheet by clicking the Save button in the upper left corner of the time sheet.
Kronos does not autosave all data entered, but not saved will be lost to get out of Chronos, be sure that you sign out and then close your browser, this is particularly important, if you are using a shared computer, if you do not sign out and quit the browser, it is possible that your Dartmouth authentication could be used by someone else trying to enter their own time in Chronos.
Finally, your access to the Kronos web entry time system will end either when your employer terminates your employment or if you have not recorded any time worked for six consecutive weeks, congratulations, you are now ready to start using Kronos electronic time sheets, if you encounter any difficulties, please use the resources listed on the screen, thanks.
