Banner 9 Project Update 5/25/2018

New Application Navigator Launching 5/28/18

On Monday, May 28th, you will notice a change to the main navigation bar in Banner 9. 

The navigation bar is on the left hand side of the screen. 

***Note - There are 2 known issues in this version of Application Navigator:

  1. The "?" for help only works on Banner native forms. When accessed from Custom Forms you will receive a 404 error.
  2. Occassionally, when typing a form name in the search bar, the page will take you to an unintended form. To minimize impact, please use the "Personal Menu" for frequently accessed forms. (Instructions can be found in the below article.)
