CATEGORIZE TRANSACTIONS AND BUILD A BUDGET TO MANAGE YOUR SPENDING
The new online banking system will categorize most transactions automatically (such as a purchase at Trader Joe’s being categorized as “Groceries” or “Food”). You can change the category of transactions that have been automatically categorized, split transactions between multiple categories, and create new categories to meet your needs.
The Budgets system relies on the transaction categories noted above. You can set a monthly income target as well as monthly spending targets for specific categories (such as for groceries, your electric bill, dining out, etc.). The system will track your spending and income versus those targets. You can also opt to receive alerts letting you know you’ve exceeded your spending limit(s).
SET UP SAVINGS GOALS TO HELP STAY ON TRACK
You can tie one or more savings goals to each of your savings accounts. When setting up a savings goal, designate how much you need to save and a target date. The system will let you know the average amount you need to save each month to reach that goal and will track your progress toward reaching it.
CUSTOMIZE ONLINE BANKING TO FIT YOUR NEEDS
The new system supports customization so that you can organize online banking to display the features you use most often.
- Choose up to five widgets and put them in the order in which you’d like them to be displayed.
- Choose from more than a dozen decorative themes in the full version.
- Color code each of your accounts to quickly distinguish between them.
