RDP access

Download an access application called a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to your desktop and use it to log in to the system. Supervisors may prefer the RDP version because with the Web access method, hyperfinds are limited and you won’t be able to modify your hyperfind query. Also, the RDP version offers supervisors the ability to set up schedules for their non-exempt employees. Timekeepers need to access ALL CalTime functions, available ONLY via the RDP.

CalTime Unavailable Sunday Morning, Dec. 14

CalTime will be unavailable Sunday, Dec. 14th from 7:30–10:30 a.m.

If you use a terminal to log into CalTime, you will not be affected and can swipe in and out as usual.  If you use a computer to access CalTime, and you need to log in or out during the time the system is unavailable, you will need to use a paper timecard instead, and give that to your supervisor.  Click here for instructions and to download a paper timecard.

If you need to do anything else on CalTime, please use the system before or after those hours.

Our apologies for any inconvenience that may you experience as a result of this maintenance work on the CalTime system.

(Access to CalTime through Citrix will also be unavailable on Saturday, Dec. 13, from 7-7:30 a.m., but no other users will be affected then.)
