Achieve Next-level Scheduling with Kronos Advanced Scheduler
Kronos Workforce Central comes with a standard scheduling tool referred to by most as “Basic Scheduler.” It helps organizations create schedules while taking compliance, budgets, and employee preference into consideration. But for more complex scheduling needs, Kronos offers an add-on product: Workforce Scheduler. Also known as “Kronos Advanced Scheduler,” it provides extra features and is ideal for multi-shift organizations. (Read more about the difference between Kronos Basic and Advanced Scheduler and how to choose the one that’s right for you.)
While it offers almost limitless customization options, it’s not a “plug-and-play” solution. To get the most bang for your buck, there are important Kronos Advanced Scheduler setup prerequisites to address first. For example, planning and creating a Kronos organizational map, configuring Workload Planner, defining rules, and more. This can be a resource-intensive, timely, and frustrating task—particularly if you don’t work in the back-end of Kronos often.
