About Banner Workflow

Banner Workflow provides the university community with the ability to manage a paperless approval process without having to route paper between offices. Banner Workflow can pass electronic documents, information, and tasks from one person to the next for action, following your department’s processing preferences. 

We currently support business automation solutions using Banner Workflow for several departments at Virginia Tech. including the Graduate School, the Controller's office, and the Human Resources office. These workflows allow users to process requests and route them to the appropriate approvers electronically.
