When I logged in for the first time I was asked if I want to register the computer. Is this something I should do?

Registering the computer means that it will 'remember' you for future sessions and therefore not require the use of a security access code each time you log in.  Registering the computer is only recommended for computers you control (such as your home computer).   It is not recommended when using a public computer.

I have logged in several times and each time I am prompted to obtain a secure access code, even though I registered the computer. How can I keep this from happening?

This typically occurs if your browser is set to remove all 'cookies'.  The system recognizes you by your browser's specific cookie, and if this is absent, the system assumes you are a first-time user.  Generally, some minor changes to your browser settings will correct this issue.  Please refer to our Optimal Browser Setting Guides.

I am trying to get a secure access code and have requested that it be sent to my email. However, I have waited several minutes and it hasn't arrived yet.

When you choose to receive your access code through email, check you spam or junk folders as sometimes it might be in there. The best option for receiving the code is to request to receive it via text or phone.

For some reason, my account history appears to be displaying with the oldest transactions on the top, instead of the newest. How to I correct it so that the top is the most recent transactions?

It appears that you may have inadvertantly sorted your history from oldest to newest.   This can happen by clicking a heading in online banking.  If you want the page to revert back to original, simply click 'overview' and then open your history again.  This will restore the default view of newest to oldest transactions.

I thought I completed a transaction but it is showing as 'Drafted'. How can I complete this?

Go to Online Activity, where you will see options of Approve, Draft, Cancel at top of page.  Choose 'Approve' to complete the transaction.  In addition, you can always check the status of any transaction created online by going to Online Activity.  To view all transactions, simply click drop-down box next to Transaction Status and change to 'All' and hit 'Submit' button.
