Information: Banner Search Change
October 1, 2019
What do I need to know?
We have made some changes to how Banner searches for person records prior to ID creation.
What do I need to do?
This will require no change on your part; users who create person records in Banner may notice that GOAMTCH has a new matching source: “2019 REVISED WEBADM” as the default. To ensure these new rules have the desired outcome, the ability to alter the matching source has been restricted.
This change has been made to follow current industry best practices with the goal of reducing duplicate identities in the system. This new set of rules work behind the scenes to narrow the results, making it easier for the user to locate potential matches and increases confidence when creating a new record.
