UAFR - Banner Page Naming Conventions

Banner Page Naming Conventions

Each Banner page has both a page title and a page name. A page title is a longer description of what the page does. You can type either the page title or the page name in the Search field on the main menu. Page names consist of seven characters. Each character and its position tells you information about the page.

This table is a list of the character position, what the character position tells you, and what characters can be used.
