Workforce Central Suite


Feature Chronology Overview I Purpose
The purpose of this document is to assist you in the process of upgrading to Kronos Workforce Timekeeper v6 from an earlier version of Workforce Timekeeper (formerly known as Timekeeper C/S). The document outlines the majority of new features and enhancements that have been added with each release, beginning with v3.0.

II Overview
If youre considering an upgrade to Workforce Timekeeper v6, youll want to understand the major differences in functionality and system architecture that this platform offers. The information that follows describes these differences at a high level. In addition, the feature chronology chart lists the majority of features introduced with each new version.

System Architecture
Initial releases of Timekeeper C/S v1 and v2and subsequently, Workforce Timekeeper v3operated in a traditional client/server environment. This architecture involved distributed, two-tiered processing between thick clients networked to a central database server. With the introduction of Workforce Timekeeper v4, Kronos made available an entirely Web-based, three-tier architecture consisting of browser-enabled clients communicating over the network with Web and application servers on the back end. Released in June 2007, Workforce Timekeeper v6, when running on Oracle, can scale to handle from 100 employees to more than 1 million. Whats more, Workforce Timekeeper v6 is J2EE compliant, making it an open and scalable platform language. On the desktop, Workforce Timekeeper v6 uses Java applets and HTML to deliver the user interface. Your power users will typically need sophisticated display functions with a highly interactive user interface that can efficiently access multiple employee records. To meet these needs, the Kronos solution provides Java applets. While the thin Web client offers a low bandwidth option for remote usersor for those with low-end desktops or Macintosh computers. In versions 2 and 3, apart from time entry and timecard approvals, which were licensed via Workforce Web, access to manager functions was available from Windows desktops only. Now, with Workforce Central v6, access for both employees and managers is browser-based. Workforce Employee licenses are required for employees who enter their time and leave via the Web. Workforce Manager licenses are required for employees who need to access manager functions such as timecard approvals.

Feature Updates
The feature chronology chart that follows includes a list of features and product components associated with the version and date of release.
