Recording Attendance in Banner for Attendance Keepers

Specific employees in work areas are designated as Attendance Keepers as part of their regular work duties. These people record the sick time, vacation time and other absences from work for a group of employees in their area.

The following instructions help navigate you through Banner 9 to record attendance for an employee.


  • For Attendance Keepers to have access to the Banner Attendance pages and Cognos reports, their manager must send a request for BANNER-ATTEND security and Attendance Groups to IT services
  • Once the request is complete by IT, the request will be triaged to an HR Systems Administrator to provide access to the Attendance Group requested.
