WaveNet, Kronos: Trouble with Internet Explorer

Information Technology (IT) would like to share with you information regarding WaveNet and Kronos:

A number of people in the Pepperdine community have had issues while using the Internet Explorer browser to access WaveNet and Kronos. These issues range from modest inconveniences such as visual inconsistencies to more significant obstacles including the inability to use some services.

Please understand that the IT division is doing everything that it can to ensure compatibility between Internet Explorer, WaveNet, and Kronos, but until these vendors collaborate on a solution, Pepperdine’s IT division recommends the Firefox browser for use with WaveNet and Kronos.

Should you insist on using Internet Explorer, the following steps may improve your experience:

1.       Delete your browser history

2.       Add Pepperdine.edu as a trusted site

3.       Add Pepperdine.edu to the pop-up blocker

4.       Add Pepperdine.edu to the compatibility list

If you need help with any of these steps, then please follow these instructions: http://community.pepperdine.edu/it/tools/wavenet/faculty-staff/clearcachepeoplesoft11.htm
