Exciting Banner Milestone:
HR/Payroll Launches December 6
By Stephanie Brim
The next Banner ERP Project milestone, implementation of the HR/Payroll module, is scheduled for on Monday, December 6.
What this means:
From past issues of Keep the Change, the HR/Payroll Team’s monthly newsletter:
“…The Banner version [of ePAF] will be completely electronic! Departments will not only generate the document, but will also send it forward for approval online. The signature approval sequence can be predetermined or modified based on the activity being taken with the PAF. Just imagine – no more hunting for people to approve personnel actions!”
“…Another “electronic opportunity” will be web time entry for student employees and online leave reporting for faculty and exempt employees. Initially handled by a department designee, time entry can be tailored to allow for individual log-in/log-out. For both web-time entry and online leave reporting, the employee and their supervisor will be able to approve the document online. Just imagine – no more hunting for people to approve timesheets and leave reports!”
“…While you have had the opportunity to see your check stub through Sam Web for several years, Banner’s Self Service System (SSB) will offer that and more! In SSB you may have the opportunity to complete a timesheet or leave report (if your department decides to allow employee entry), check your benefits and deductions, verify your tax status, determine your leave balances and confirm your direct deposit. In the future, we also plan to offer our W-2’s for 2011 online! Just imagine - no more waiting in line to pick it up or for the postal service to deliver it!”
With the success of time entry and ePAF training in November, we’ve identified the need for more! The next version of ePAF I and ePAF II will be offered in a slightly different model that will include a two-hour block for Time Entry followed by a one-hour block for ePAF Processing. We’ve designed the sessions so that trainees who only need Time Entry training don’t have to sit through ePAF training. But, if someone needs both, they’re offered back to back for convenience.
The next round of Time Entry and ePAF training will be offered for individuals who need, but have not yet attended training. We also hope to have additional space available. Check the HR Training Calendar for availability. There is no General Navigation Training prerequisite for these particular classes.
