Payroll Roles in Banner and ANA

Employees who are to function in Banner or ANA as a Superuser, Approver, or Originator must have their Banner security access set up by AITS first. Without security access you cannot use payroll forms in Banner and the unit's employees cannot submit timesheets.


The Originator (department time entry) or employee (Web time entry) enters the employee's hours worked (regular and overtime) and benefits usage (sick leave, vacation, funeral leave, leave without pay, etc.) into Banner time entry forms.


The Approver reviews and approves the information entered by the originator or employee. The Approver also makes necessary changes before approving. Approvers cannot approve their own time. If an Approver is also an hourly employee required to submit time, a Proxy or Superuser other than the designated Approver must approve the Approver's time.

If the unit Approver's position changes, the Superuser must set up a new Approver or the unit's timesheets will not progress through the routing queue.


The person who can act on the behalf of the Department Originator and/or Approver. The corresponding originator/approver security profile must be set up for the individual acting as a proxy. An originator/approver can set up their proxy using the banner form NTRPROX and/or Banner Self Service/Proxy Set up.


A Superuser can originate, change, or approve all time transactions and has an extended amount of time to work on them. The Superuser must set up at least one Approver for the Time Sheet Organization on the routing queue form NTTRQUE. The superuser role is a time entry profile and will not transfer over to ANA or other University Applications. For additional information on setting up a new approver, consult Working with Routing Queues in Banner.
