November 28 Project Update

Welcome back from the Thanksgiving holiday. We hope that you had a relaxing and enjoyable one. Last week was short, yet progress continues as we march forward toward the end of the year.

We have engaged a consultant to assist with deploying Banner 9 Self Service Benefits for New Hires and Open Enrollment, which we expect to have available by the end of March 2023.

Salary Planner will be made available in Banner 9 Self Service in the early part of 2023.

We welcome any questions or comments you may have on the various functions that will be available within Banner 9 Self Service.

Much appreciation to the entire project team and the university community for supporting our efforts. We’ve done a lot and still have more to go – but it is gratifying to recognize how far we’ve come.

November 21 Project Update

Almost Thanksgiving… and we are grateful.

What was done this week:
As of November 16, these BannerWeb pages are upgraded and replaced with Banner 9 Self Service:

Employee Services Online menu

  • Leave Reporting
  • Leave Balances

Pay Information submenu

  • Deduction History
  • Pay Stub
  • Earnings History

Benefit and Deduction Information submenu

  • Medical and Dental Benefits
  • Flexible Spending Accounts
  • Other Benefits and Deductions
  • Retirement Plans
  • Miscellaneous Employee Data

Direct Deposit – with training videos and associated job aids being made available. There is direct access from MiamiOH.edu/DirectDeposit.

The good news is that accessing these new pages will not change much for you. They will still be accessed from the main BannerWeb menu the same way they always have.
We are in the process of developing some training materials that we hope will help ease the transition. These materials offer guidance for a variety of learning styles via short instructional graphics, detailed step-by-step instructions, and how-to videos. All of the guides we are developing have the purpose of answering most “how-to” questions.
There are additional modules that are currently available in Banner 9 Self Service as well. These include the following (with a link to the actual tool):

One of the other nice features of Banner 9 Self Service is that it supports preferred names, which is a change from the previous version. This means when you are logged in, you will see your preferred name shown at the top of the screens.

We welcome any questions or comments you may have on the various functions that will be available within Banner 9 Self Service.

Much appreciation to the entire project team and the University community for supporting our efforts. We’ve done a lot and still have more to go – but it is gratifying to recognize how far we’ve come.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday – enjoy your family and friends, be safe, and have fun!
