What kind of communications does the Trust Site push out?  

You have the option to subscribe to three different types of communications through the Trust Site. These include incidents, maintenance, and announcements. Ease serves a different purpose to ensure you get all the information you need for success. 

  • Incidents – These are unplanned or emergency events, outages, performance degradations, etc., that are only sent as needed. Opting into incident communications means that you will receive timely and critical notifications via email each time Kronos identifies an issue impacting the availability of your solution. We recommend that IT staff, operations employees, and project team members subscribe to Incident communications.
  • Maintenance – Maintenance communications are about planned events. You will be notified whenever a maintenance event is scheduled. These notifications will inform you of what tenants are impacted and how the scheduled maintenance will impact access to your solution. As for Incidents, IT staff, operations employees, or project team members should consider signing up for Maintenance communications.
  • Announcements – Announcement communications educate and inform you about upcoming enhancements, improvements, and new features within your Workforce Dimensions solution. They also highlight helpful resources to ensure you and your team are fully prepared for changes. Any Workforce Dimensions Trust Site user who wants to stay informed about enhancements in new releases should opt into Announcement communications.
