Banner Creating A Personal My Menu

You can create your own personalized "My Banner" menu in Banner Admin Pages using the GUAPMNU form. The My Banner menu can be helpful for forms you use all the time and also forms you use occasionally (e.g. once per semester) but have a hard time remembering. Favorites is the easiest method, but GUAPMNU can give you a second set if you find the need to organize your important pages used in performing your job.

Reasons To Use My Banner Menu

  • Place to Store Pages you use less frequently and have a hard time remembering the name or Ellucian page description in order to search.

  • You can organize your My Banner menu with submenus by your own categories.

  • You can copy menus to other users.  This can be handy to get new hires up and running quickly.
