BJC | BJC will launch the newest version of MyTime, BJC’s scheduling and timekeeping software, the morning of Dec. 3. To prepare for this upgrade, MyTime will shut down starting at midnight, Nov. 30, through 7 a.m., Dec. 3. Team members can still use time clocks during the shutdown to clock in and out. Time clocks will hold the in and out punches and will post to time cards when MyTime is back up
As with past MyTime upgrades, training is required for those with manager-level access to schedules and/or time cards. For all other team members, training is recommended.
Online training will be available for all employees, including those with manager-level access, and will be assigned to transcripts in Saba on Nov. 8. For those with manager-level access (those who edit/review schedules and time cards), the required online training will cover the new features and new navigation. It is expected to take about 80 minutes to complete.
Carol D’Agostino, MyTime scheduling manager, says the online training will be sufficient for most leaders. However, for those with manager-level access who feel they need additional training, MyTime will offer a few classroom sessions (lasting about three hours) beginning Nov. 16.
For all other employees, only online training (about 30 minutes) will be available, along with printable quick reference guides. There won’t be any classroom sessions for employee-level training.
The new MyTime version has a more intuitive design and new navigation for all-employee functions such as schedules, time cards, attendance review and PTO requests. Google Chrome will be the recommended browser, instead of Internet Explorer, making access to MyTime from outside of the BJC network more reliable for all BJC team members.
“We’re pleased to bring the newest version of MyTime to BJC this fall,” says D’Agostino. “Team members will find it easier to use, and having quick, reliable access from outside of BJC’s network is a big positive as well.”
For more information about the MyTime upgrade or training, using time clocks during the shutdown, or accessing needed information in MyTime after the upgrade, contact your immediate supervisor or email email@example.com.

Will remote colleagues be able to log in and out or will they need to email managers their timesheets for this period?

From Carol D'Agostino, MyTime scheduling manager:
Employees will have much improved ability to use MyTime remotely, although it will depend on the settings on each computer. The upgraded MyTime is compatible with Windows, 7, 8, 10 and OS X (Mac) with browsers Google Chrome, Internet Explorer (minimum of version 11), Firefox 55+, Microsoft Edge and Safari 11. Adobe Flash player is also required.

I like how the article pretty much says the only reason why BJC is upgrading MyTime is because they're being forced to by the vendor.

Since it no longer works on mobile devices that do not support Adobe flash, will the Kronos android app be supported?

How is my ability to use it remotely much better when it doesn’t work on my phone or IPad? This is how I access it at home and now I have nothing.

According to Carol D'Agostino, myTime team member: MyTime was never supported on mobile phones. We knew some employees were accessing via the web browser on their phones but it was not authorized. Flash is required with the upgrade which makes it unable to be used on most phone.
There is better access to MyTime from outside the BJC network at https://mytime.bjc.org. So employees can use browsers on PC’s to get to their information in MyTime from home.
