Administrative Banner – The Updated Interface Has a New Look
July 13, 2018
Information Technology Services (ITS) has implemented an update to the Administrative Banner (Banner 8 Admin Forms) application because support for the old version will end this calendar year. Banner 8 Admin Forms will be updated with a new release called Banner 9 Admin Pages that is easier to use and has a modern look and feel. The new Banner 9 Admin Pages application is already being tested and will be in use in October. Anyone that currently uses Banner 8 Admin Forms is encouraged to log in to the test site and explore the new updated application. Familiarity with the updated application will make the transition on October 1st a smooth one.
A major benefit of the new version is that it is Java free, which means it will work in any browser without requiring periodic Java updates. ITS will install patches until August 24, 2018 when the system will be ready for more user tests. Subsequent releases will replace the self-service functions hosted through VandalWeb. This university-wide adoption process is moving along as expected. Information and FAQ on this topic can be found on the Banner 9 Admin Pages Implementation Project webpage.
