Banner General and Banner Employee Going Live on February 22

Banner 9 General Self Service & Employee Self Service Going Live on February 22

As we announced last month, the University will be transitioning from Banner Version 8 to Banner Version 9 Self Service. This upgrade will deliver a fresh user experience with a modern look and feel, increased efficiencies, new tools and improved capabilities. This upgrade will impact everyone at the university, so please view outlined changes below.

Reminder: Our first release is scheduled for February 22 and includes General Self Service and Employee Self Service!

Banner General Self Service — your personal information hub

What is Banner General Self Service?

Essentially, this is your personal information hub. It is the portion of Banner Self Service that you are used to going to view and edit your information, such as your address, phone number, emergency contacts, etc. You may recognize this from your IIT Portal under the Banner Self Service Channel.

Banner Employee — timesheets & job-related information hub

What is Banner Employee Self Service?

This is where Faculty, Staff, and Student Employees go to submit and approve timesheets, view/edit their benefits, view pay and job information, and more. While we are currently used to seeing our timesheets as a Time Reporting Channel in the IIT Portal, this will be changing with the upgrade. You’ll be able to see a new Portal Channel that will take you straight to your new Employee Dashboard.

What’s new in Banner Employee Self Service?

A newly consolidated, easy-to-use dashboard that makes key personnel information readily available, including a new Employee Profile that is an intuitive entry point for employees to access their personal, employment, and job-related information. See below for a sneak peek of what your new Employee Dashboard will look like.

The OTS, HR, Payroll, Finance, Registrar and Grants departments are working hard on this upgrade and on making the transition as seamless as possible. Training materials will be made available and the Help Desk will be prepared to assist with any questions. As the upgrade progresses, OTS looks forward to sharing more information with you about Banner Self Service Version 9. Please keep an eye out in Illinois Tech Today for updates, details about each module and training materials.
