Banner Finance Users,

The options menu on FGITRND (Detail Transaction Activity Form) is grayed out. This is used to drill down into the transaction detail. This is a defect. We will obtain, test and implement the patch for this issue. We hope to have the issue resolved next week and will send out a follow-up communication once it has been.

Banner Finance Users,

We are aware of the POST-TEXT-ITEM error message that is appearing when users are attempting to query in FAAINVT using an Account Manager ID or Business Manager ID. We are working on a solution and hope to have it implemented by the end of the week. In the interim, the Cardholder ID or the Responsible Organization can be used to query without receiving an error. We will send out a follow-up communication once the POST-TEXT-ITEM error has been resolved.

A reminder that due to the Banner 8x upgrade, the Banner Finance/HR system will be unavailable to users from 5 PM tomorrow night, Thursday, September 23rd, through start of business on Monday, September 28th.

Banner 8x for Finance

There are not many changes that will be brought up initially for Finance as a result of Banner 8x. There are field size changes, underlying character set changes to support international characters and some repositioning of items on forms to accommodate the new field sizes. Overall functionality is not significantly impacted. There is a new form to support seeing a lot of detailed information regarding a fund and grant combination, see FRIFUND. There are also a number of items that we will be implementing at a slower pace, see "Enhancements to be enabled in the future".

As a preview of some of these items in Banner 8x for Finance users, a document has been prepared, please see "What's New in Banner 8x for Finance" for more details.

  • Update on Banner 8x upgrade

Banner 8x cut-over is rapidly approaching. We are a just under 12 days to go live!

Payroll/HR have issued a detailed set of dates related to cut-offs and deadlines. That can be found at 2010 HR & PAYROLL Deadlines

To reiterate the overall schedule - which you have probably all seen 100 times now. But just to be sure.
