Use ‘KRONOS’ for All Your Timekeeping Needs
The “Kronos WFC” link in the Partners application menu has been renamed “KRONOS.” You can now use this menu option to access all Kronos functions. If you are a Kronos Self-Service user, use the “KRONOS” link to clock in and out. The “Kronos Self-Service” link has been removed. The eForm link will remain in the Utilities menu. Kronos can still be accessed from outside the Partners network by going to kronos.partners.org. There is no change in procedure for employees who clock in and out using the Kronos timeclocks.
