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 Superuser must set up at least one Approver for the Time Sheet Organization. For additional information on setting up a new approver, consult Working with Routing Queues in Banner.
