The Navigation and Financial Query Class is designed to give departmental users a brief overview of Administrative Banner and how it is used at Mississippi State University. This introductory class offers users the opportunity to become acquainted with navigating through the system and learn some of the querying capabilities available. Several pages are covered showing users how to obtain fund balances, budget and expenditure activity, vendor information, track the progress of a purchase and much more. This course is separated into several modules which will begin with a PowerPoint presentation and an introduction to Administrative Banner. Next, we will cover navigation skills and setting up a personal menu. Finally, we will explore the options available for viewing the status of departmental budgets and financial transactions. All modules must be completed in the order listed and the quiz must be submitted. To follow the examples in the course and become a user, an Admin Banner Production account must be setup. This account will allow you to access Banner and view data in the system. For more information on setting up your Admin Banner PROD account, visit the Administrative Banner: Getting Started site page found in the Service Desk Knowledge Base. NOTE: This class is a one-time prerequisite (requirement) for all other Banner Classes. If you do not complete this course, you will not be able to register for other Banner courses.
