Self Service Banner 8 for Employees to be Sunset April 1

As announced back in December in The Dome and posted in the Need to Know of the portal, ITS will be shutting down Self Service Banner 8 for Employees on Monday April 1.  Now is the time to get familiar with the Employee Dashboard and begin using it.

To assist with campus training, we have recorded 2 Ellucian videos.  They can be found in the Banner wiki documentation page found here:  (Scroll down to find the Self Service Banner 9 for Human Resources heading, in order to view the Employee Dashboard Overview and/or the Hourly Timesheet Overview).

Using the “My Team” functionality is a great way to review information about staff that report to you, including mailing addresses, phone numbers, Emails, leave balances and emergency contacts. We encourage you to review this information and advise your staff to keep their Canisius emergency contact information current via the Campus Alert/Update Emergency Contacts or Personal Information apps. Both apps are available in the portal, under CAMPUS SERVICES.

Please consider adding the Employee Dashboard to your favorites in the portal, just drag and drop the link located under PAYROLL or HUMAN RESOURCES!
