3. What are the Default eAlert Settings?
Email Addresses, Cellular Phone Addresses, Notification Times, Detail Level, and Nickname can all be assigned default
values by defining your account's Default eAlert Settings. These default values will be pre-filled each time you add a
new eAlert to your account, making the process even quicker and easier.

4. Will all eAlerts I set up use my Default eAlert Settings automatically?
Once you define your Default eAlert Settings, any future eAlerts you add will have the default values you specify pre-filled
wherever they are appropriate. You can overwrite these defaults on any eAlert at the time of addition if you'd like.

11. When will I receive an eAlert?
On most eAlert setup screens there are two fields called "Send eAlerts From" and "Send eAlerts
Until". Enter the time range you would like your eAlerts to be sent. If an eAlert is triggered outside
of your chosen time range, your eAlert will be sent the following day. The exception to this is the Daily
Balance eAlert. For this eAlert type you need to choose a "Notify Me At" time to be notified once
a day. If you would like to receive all of your eAlerts at a specific time every day, simply set "Send
eAlerts From" and "Send eAlerts Until" to the same time, making sure to choose a time during
normal business hours.

Back to top

12. What does 'Notify Me At' mean?
In the case of the Daily Balance eAlert, you will need to choose a single time during normal business hours to be
notified of your balance(s). If you would like to be notified of your balances multiple times a day, then you can
set up multiple Daily Balance eAlerts.

Immediately. eAlerts are processed and sent in real time. You will not receive any eAlerts for transactions
that occurred prior to when you set up the eAlert.

at the bottom of the Setup screen. Enter a date range in the "From" and "To" boxes, select an
eAlert type, then click "Show" to see your past eAlerts.

16. How many eAlerts am I allowed to sign up for?
There is absolutely no limit to the number of eAlerts you can sign up for. You can sign up for multiple
types of eAlerts as well as sign up multiple times for each type of eAlert.

For example, you can set up a low balance eAlert to be notified at home anytime your checking account balance
drops below $200.00. You can then sign up for another low balance eAlert and have it email your cellular phone
anytime your account balance drops below $50.00.

17. Are all eAlert types available to all people?
No. The types that are available to you depend on two things, the first being the types of products you have. For example, if you
have no loans then the Loan Payment Due eAlert will not be offered to you. Second, the process that triggers some eAlerts will not
always work correctly for everyone. If there are any that will not be sent properly 100% of the time then it will be disabled.
