KRONOS: Custom reports

Kronos workforce management


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




Hi Syed – I’m a WFC consulting type & only just getting first exposure to WFR (initial thoughts are that it ain’t half bad btloi …), so hope my reply is at least partially correct & of some use.

Seems that for all intents & purposes the WFR application itself is the “Report Writer”, as in each & every screen that you access is in effect a report, or a potential report. As such, to create a new/customized report, you follow the process for designing a new, customized screen with relevant data/columns/layout as required and then save that as a Personal, Shared, or Company-wide default screen (“report“)

This is then your new “report“, and you follow the usual process wrt extracting or exporting this data to your chosen output destination.

RE: Custom Report – Data Reporting Source

Good morning.
I am trying to create a custom report using Visual Studio.  I took the class a few years back and I remember them saying that once you set up the ReportingDataSource in 1 environment you do not have to change it to go from development to test to production.  I can get the report to run in Visual Studio but my problem is that I am stuck on how to set up the ReportingDataSouce so that it works correctly.  I can get it to work if I add the ODBC to a particular environment but when we refresh test I don’t want to have to go in and change the ODBC on the custom report.  Any help would be appreciated.
Kronos v6.3 – sql db.


Kronos is very secretive about how the DSN is created and what the parameters are.  We found it much easier to grab an existing report from Kronos and alter it, rather than build a newreport from scratch.  This might help.
