Can you believe it’s already almost June? I, for one, am so excited for the summer months to finally start and am looking forward to our release at the end of the month! Remember that the June release cycle is when the new timesheet experience will officially be implemented and the classic retired. 

We are here to help you through this change and have plenty of resources to make this transition as seamless as it can be. Check them out below! 

 

Timesheet experience

 

Working Smarter Café Posts

In addition to this post, we have two other blogs detailing new timesheet updates: 

The Feature Toggle 

The toggle button is still available until the June release, so make sure you take advantage of it! Use the toggle button to take screenshots and update any training material you may need to in order to prepare your employees for the June release. While some new features are being released in June, many features are available under the toggle! 

New Timesheet Experience Demos 

Our product managers have put together two new timesheet demos to detail the changes coming during our June release. The first demo gives insight into the changes coming from an employee’s perspective, while the second demo shows the changes from a manager’s perspective. 

Each demo is around 10 minutes long and great for preparing your employees for the upcoming changes happening in the June release. Below are two of the main enhancements: 

  • Exception tab: A separate tab has been added in the timesheet to allow managers to quickly add/edit exceptions for the entire timesheet instead of one day at a time
  • Display employee default cost center: The option to display the employee default cost center(s) next to their name at the top of the timesheet has been added, allowing managers to quickly reference the employee’s default cost center

“Comparing Experiences” PowerPoint 

This PowerPoint is a brand new resource available today for you to download via the UKG Kronos Community! Customer success manager and former HR practitioner Kristen Hug put together this training PowerPoint to show all the differences between the classic and the new timesheet experience. Complete with screenshots and explanations on each change, this is a resource you definitely want to take advantage of ahead of our June release. 

Release Spotlight Videos

Make sure you are checking out our workforce management release spotlight videos that come out two weeks before each release! In these spotlight videos, we highlight some of the upcoming feature enhancements, and for the past two releases, we’ve made sure to highlight the updates to the new timesheet experience. 

The June release spotlight video will be published the week of June 7, so make sure to keep an eye out for it! You can find links to the spotlight videos in the readyConnect panel and the release readiness page.

The Release Readiness Page 

The release readiness page is a MUST-use resource. It houses most of our timesheet resources in a central location. You can find links to the blog posts, demos, the “Comparing Experiences” PowerPoint, and spotlight videos listed above. The release readiness page was recently revamped to provide you with more insight and information on UKG Ready™ releases! Make sure to bookmark the release readiness page today.
