In addition to the redesigned app, you now have a new tool to help manage your mobile banking preferences inside online banking.
Log in to your online banking account. Under the My Profile tab select the Manage Mobile Banking option.
Select Accounts and Payees
Now you can add account suffixes and ePay payees to your mobile account. First you need to log in to the mobile app before these settings can be edited.
Your entire list of payees set up inside online banking will transfer to the mobile app. However, you may want to disable some payees that you don’t pay very often - especially if your list is very long.
Nicknames for Payees added here cannot have spaces and they must be unique.
If you have multiple deposit accounts, it can be helpful to name them something that makes more sense to how they're used. Now you can. Choose which accounts you want to appear in the mobile app and call them what you want.
Nicknames for accounts edited here cannot have spaces and they must be unique.
You can enroll in a variety of alerts both from here and from the mobile app. Multiple alerts can be set at individual account levels and sent on more than one channel - push notifications, text alerts, etc.
However, you can only register another device for text banking and email alerts here. Select Add Alert Channel to enable another device for text banking.
