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.
