Banner Application Navigator 3.3 Webinars

As part of the August maintenance, a new version of the Application Navigator landing page in Banner 9 Admin Pages will be implemented. The new landing page will provide the UIW community with a technical currency refresh and several highly anticipated improvements to the user interface. In addition to the feature noted, several change requests are included to improve the overall quality of the solution.

The landing page changes are primarily cosmetic of course, some of the functionality is the same as in the previous version. To help everyone become familiar with the new changes, Banner resources are available by clicking on the link below.
