Preface

Student Affairs is currently upgrading and migrating our Kronos instance from on-premise to the cloud. Our current Kronos on-premise instance uses Adobe Flash to access the website (looking at time cards, web punches, etc). Until the migration is complete, Kronos users (managers, web-punch folks) will need to use the Harman web browser to access Kronos. This is due to Adobe, Chrome, and Firefox removing support for the Adobe Flash Player. This browser can be installed on personal devices and is available on-demand on University computer


The Harman browser needs to be installed first before it can be used. Instructions for those can be found at the bottom of the page.
