Please read important updates below regarding the CalTime upgrade, Adobe Flash and mobile users. Beginning Thursday, March 30th to March 31st, CalTime will be unavailable online to all campus users in order to process the technical updates for the CalTime upgrade.   An email announcement will be sent on April 1 notifying the campus the system upgrade has completed.   

What to Expect?
During the scheduled outage, employees that use a timeclock may continue to do so and will not be impacted by the outage. Employees that use a computer and are required to record their start and stop time daily on these two days will need to check-in with their supervisor when the system is restored. The supervisor will need to enter these hours in CalTime on behalf of these employees only for those two outage days.  An email announcement will be sent on April 1 notifying the campus the system upgrade has completed.  The upgrade will not impact employee’s historical information in CalTime prior to the upgrade.

What will Change?

  • When the upgrade is complete on April 1st, all employees who access CalTime on their desktop must have Adobe Flash Player installed in order to access CalTime (Kronos version 8). Most campus users have this plugin installed on their desktop computer already and no action will be required on your part to access CalTime as usual. But, if it’s not already installed, please review the FAQ for additional information on how to install Flash.
  • Although it is not recommended, we are aware that some CalTime users access CalTime via their mobile phone. This will not be supported with the new version of CalTime.  Kronos is working on replacing Flash later this year and we are hopeful that we can provide a mobile solution at a later date.

Training offered:
To help prepare for this change, please view the concise training videos and revised job aids based on employee role available on the CalTime website.
