The HR/Payroll Team has commenced testing Banner 9 in preparation for a February Payroll and Position Control implementation. The Ellucian delivered bug fixes for the Banner 9 Financial Aid module were not successful and the problem has been escalated with our Ellucian customer service manager. Screen compression fixes have been delivered by Ellucian, however, so that the Banner 9 pages look a little more like Banner 8 pages without as much scrolling.
At present, approximately 46% of the modifications and custom objects will go back to baseline or be deprecated. 13% of the modifications and custom objects are still being reviewed. The development team has requested and received agreement in establishing protected time on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays to work on reapplying changes and recreating custom objects in the new software.
