System Purpose

Kuali Time is an automated system that plays an important role in ensuring paycheck accuracy for Indiana University’s hourly and biweekly staff. It collects time and attendance data each pay period, and automatically routes timesheets for review and approval. That data is then fed to the payroll system, where paychecks are calculated.


Types of Users

  • Hourly/Biweekly: staff for logging hours worked, attendance data, and viewing available leave time.
  • Supervisors: for reviewing and approving their employees’ timesheets.
  • Payroll Processors: for providing secondary approvals of timesheets.
  • Payroll Managers: for establishing system rules and settings for their departments.

Kuali Time kiosks are configured through group policies (GPOs). Currently, there are two main types of Kuali Time Kiosk configurations:

Kiosk Type GPO URL
Magtek USB Swipe reader bl-uits-tk-prod-edge-64-kiosk
Schlage Proximity reader bl-uits-tk-prod-prox-64-kiosk

Kiosks may give employees the choice to swipe/tap their ID card or log in using the login button on the kiosk screen.

  • The employee swipes/taps their IU ID card in card reader and their timesheet opens.
  • For kiosks without a card reader or if experiencing card problems, the employee clicks the login button, enters their Username and Passphrase and their timesheet opens.
  • During 2023, we will be transitioning the card swipe readers over to proximity readers. To order a proximity reader, follow the instructions here.
  • Detailed instructions for setting up a kiosk can be found here.
