INTERFACE TO OTHER BANNER SYSTEMS Interface to the Banner Finance System The Advancement Interface to Finance provides an automated flow of pledge and gift information from Banner Advancement to Banner Finance. It also allows pledges, gifts and dues data to flow automatically to a site-specific finance system via a generic feed table. Interface to the Banner Human Resource System This interface allows for deductions from payroll in Banner HR to become gifts/installment payments in Banner Advancement. The interface runs two ways: Banner Advancement first feeds pledges to Banner HR, and then Banner HR feeds the deductions back to create the gift/installment payment records. Interface to the Banner Student System This interface adds records to Banner Advancement from Banner Student that define individuals as constituents, and updates information on existing constituents. The interface selects individuals who meet criteria based on the values entered.
SHORTCOMINGS OF BASELINE BANNER ADVANCEMENT No automated process to create constituent records in Banner Advancement from Banner HR Inability of Alumni to be able to upload their CVs Inability of alumni officers to search and submit graduates CVs to employers The Employment History Form in Advancement is very basic
