Is it possible to email my class or advisees from Self Service Banner?

The Email Class and Email Advisee features in Banner do not always function as expected. While the work rounds below explain how to e-mail your advisees using Google Chrome, these same steps also apply to e-mailing your class.

Google Chrome Workaround

If you are using Google Chrome, follow these steps to e-mail all of your advisees:

1) Login to Banner and bring up your advisee list (Faculty and Staff Advisee Listing > Select a term from the drop-down menu > Submit).

2) Scroll down to the bottom of your advisee list, right-click on the envelope icon next to Email your advisees and select Open link in new window.
Context Menu > Open link in new window

3) Click inside the address bar at the top of the Chrome window. The e-mail addresses appearing in the address bar should now be highlighted.

4) In the address bar delete mailto:?Bcc= at the beginning of the list.

6) Open a new message in Outlook. If the Bcc field is not visible, click Options, then Bcc. Right-click inside the Bcc field and select Paste from the menu. You should now see a list of e-mail addresses.

Now that you've copied and pasted the addresses into Outlook, you can continue with creating your e-mail message and sending it.
