Banner operates in a web-based environment. When in the Banner environment, you’ll use different types of forms which are comprised of a variety of components such as menus, tool bars, blocks, buttons, check boxes, fields, records, and drop-down lists.
Forms are the critical elements in Banner 8. Through forms all information is entered, maintained, edited, and queried. They are visually organized to allow for ease of data entry and readability, and are displayed in a standard design similar to paper forms. Each form has a unique name that distinguishes it from other Banner 8 forms. It also has its own security parameters and monitoring techniques. Information entered into one form, may also be used by other forms, reports, and jobs.
