January 19, 2017

On March 30, 2017 the CalTime system will be upgraded to Kronos version 8.  Updating CalTime to the latest software will secure system performance and will improve the overall look and feel of CalTime while eliminating a few steps to accomplish tasks.  

Key enhancements include:

  • Java free application
  • One timecard view for all CalTime users eliminating access to CalTime via Citrix
  • Guided tutorials, icons, and color alerts to guide users to the next task
  • Easy access to view leave accruals and balances

What these enhancements mean for CalTime Users:

These changes simply alter the look and feel of the CalTime system. There will be no change to your existing CalTime procedures, There will be no change to existing pay rules, or union configuration within CalTime including friendly names.    

In order to familiarize yourself with the enhancements, please view the preview video to demonstrate the improvements you can expect to see this spring.  Updated brief and concise training videos designed based on user role (Supervisor and Employee) will be available in late February 2017. In addition, instructor led trainings for Timekeepers and Supervisors will be announced and posted on the learning center in the next few weeks.

Please review the frequently asked questions.  For additional clarification or assistance with the transition, please email
