Kronos Pay Period Group Post Tips

by | Feb 11, 2016

Do you have multiple locations that post at different times, or have numerous payroll personnel who post your payroll? There is a new Kronos post process which allows you to create post groups. This feature lets you pre-post, post, un-post and close your pay period all from the same screen. It also gives you the benefit of being able to review who processes which function, and at what date and time.

Turning on Kronos Post Process Groups

Go into Company Maintenance, then look for the option to Activate Time Post by Group. Turn it to a Y in green screen or put a checkmark beside it in the Web Interface.

Using Kronos Post Process Groups

To use the new feature, go into the post process just like before. Be aware the screen will look different. You will create groups based on the locations/divisions that you post. For example, if you have a salary group and an hourly group, you would create two new post groups: HOURLY and SALARY. When you create the group you will have the same selections screens as you would have if you were posting the old way. Set up your groups with the selections that you want.

Once the groups are selected you will have several options:

  • R = Pre-Post report
  • P = Post
  • U = Un-Post
  • I = for Interface
  • Close and Roll

If the new Pay Period Post Group would be beneficial for your company, Surety Systems would love to discuss it with you.
