How to Log on to Kronos Timekeeper From Home

By Ilene Tatroe

Kronos Workforce Timekeeper is a software product that enables companies to track, plan and manage employee time. Although installations and features used vary from company to company, some organizations allow employees to log in from a home computer, tablet or smartphone to log their time worked or even to review and request time off. Before logging in to Workforce Timekeeper, you should verify that your company allows you to access the software from home or another off-site location.
