Oakland A’s giving all fans free tickets.

Oakland Coliseum

As exhibited by the empty seats during the LA Dodgers (a.k.a “Los Doyers”) World Series vs the Chicago Cubs, attending baseball games may not be a top priorities for Californians. With the decrease in Major League Baseball over the years and the fact that some teams are just going to suck sometimes, it would be unfair to single out Cali on this. As a way to get fans in concession stand lines, The Oakland A’s have decided that they will be offering free tickets for their matchup against the Chicago…

Kronos workforce management

Hi Does anyone knows on how to create custom reports for Workforce Ready? Any document will be helpful.

KRONOS: IP Address Display on Clocks

Kronos workforce management

My company types the Clock Number and the IP Address into the Alternate Message field on the General Device Setting so that each clock displays it’s IP Address and device number. Is there a setting to display the IP Address and/or Device Number or other identifying information without having to have so many general device settings and text fields to maintain? Thanks, Mary ——————- We put a label on each clock with Name, IP and Device ID.  Works for our environment.

KRONOS: Duration Pay Codes

Kronos workforce management

Q: A questions for those that use duration pay codes –  Do you utilize the Always process duration as separate shift? I have been using Duration Pay Code edits a lot recently and found the feature robust and useful. I generally use the “Always process duration as a separate shift” as my default because a Duration Pay Code Edit typically is expected be behave like a Standard Pay Code Edit (which is not attached to any existing punched span of time).  Remember, a Duration Pay Code Edit is very much like…

Eastern Puma declared extinct

It finally happened on January 23, 2018. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service declared the eastern puma officially extinct, removing it from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife. Yes, in many ways that’s devastating news. Somehow we let another incredible creature disappear from the world. Here’s the thing, though — the last sighting of this particular big cat occurred some 80 years ago. The eastern puma has been gone for a long, long time. So why is the cat only being removed from the list? Source: The Eastern Puma Is Officially Extinct, But There’s…
