Article summary

This article covers the available end-user email communications that are sent to your Account Opening and Digital Banking users. 

The following conditions apply:

  • Emails are sent via the Narmi system and typically have a "from" address of no-reply@[financial-institution-domain] unless you have a default "from" email address specified in Institution Settings > Default From Email
  • For joint business accounts, communications are sent to the primary applicant only. 
  • For joint consumer and business applications, communications are sent to the primary applicant only. 
  • For security, as of release 2024.5, no usernames are included in end-user email communications. If your institution would like to allow users to see their username in communications, contact your Narmi Relationship Manager to make this change.

Some emails are configurable in our Admin Platform and if so, that is specified below. To configure, go to the Admin Platform sidebar, select Configurations > Institution settings, then use the setting specified. Note: Some communications have separate email templates for Consumer Account Opening (CAO) and Business Account Opening (BAO), specified below.

The following emails are organized by category—Business Banking, Enrollment, Money Movement, Transactions, User Setup, and Other. All Digital Banking emails are automatically sent to end users.

Business Banking 

  • Dual Approval Approved – Sent when a wire the user submitted is approved (dual approvals must be enabled). Configure this email via Institution Settings > Dual Approval Approved Email Template.
  • Dual Approval Denied – Sent when a wire the user submitted is denied (dual approvals must be enabled). Configure this email via Institution Settings > Dual Approval Denied Email Template.

  • Organization Invite – Sent when a business admin invites a new user to join their organization's Digital Banking account. Configure this email via Institution Settings > Organization Invite Template.

Enrollment

  • Welcome Email – Sent when a user's Digital Banking account is activated. It includes a link to confirm their email address within 2 days.
  • Enrollment Code – If your financial institution requires two-factor authentication or has enabled enrollment codes, a prompt displays during enrollment for the user to enter a verification code. This email is sent to the email address associated with the account and includes the verification code.
  • Online Banking Add Account Verification – This email is only sent from institutions where the Memberships "Link another account" feature is enabled in Digital Banking Settings. For more information on this feature, go to Memberships.
    If a user enters the correct details to link an account, we check whether their email has already been confirmed or not:
    • If the email has already been confirmed, we automatically link the account
    • If the email has not been confirmed and your institution supports enrollment codes, rather than automatically linking, we send an email to the core-provided email on the account they're attempting to link. When the user opens the email and selects Confirm, the account will be successfully linked.
  • User Exists without Reset Link – We send this email if we identify that a user has already enrolled, but is attempting to enroll from the "Tell us more about you" page of enrollment. We determine which email is sent based on whether the institution supports core authentication or not.
    This use case is where the core uses authentication, meaning the core also stores a record of the username/password and has its own defined username/password validation. We send the email and display an error to the user.
  • User Exists – We send this email if we identify that a user has already enrolled, but is attempting to enroll from the "Tell us more about you" page of enrollment. We determine which email is sent based on whether the institution supports core authentication or not. This use case is where the core DOES NOT use authentication. We search our own Narmi database for a user with the given core_user_id and user_category (personal or business). If we find that a user already exists, we send an email with a password reset link and display an error to the user.
  • Enrollment Continuation – We send this email when a user has not finished their enrollment and they either 1) re-enter information in the "Tell us more about you" page or 2) try resetting their password. The email includes a link for them to continue enrollment.

Money Movement

  • ACH Transaction Initiated – Sent when a user performs an ACH transfer to confirm the transfer was initiated.
  • Transfer Failed – Sent when a user performs an ACH transfer to confirm the transfer failed.
  • Wire Submitted – Sent when a user requests a wire transfer to confirm the wire request was received.
  • ACH Rejected – Sent when a user's ACH transfer was canceled by staff.
  • Wire Rejected – Sent when a user's wire request was rejected by staff.
  • Loan Payment Rejected – Sent when the user's loan payment is rejected because it is greater than the loan balance.
  • External Account Verified – Sent when an external account has been successfully verified and added to the user's existing Digital Banking account.

Transactions

  • Transaction Alert – Sent when a user has posted transactions that meet their alert criteria. For more information go to Transaction Alerts.
  • Transaction Alert Rate Limited – Sent when a user's transactions are rate-limited. This email asks the user to review their transactions.

User Setup

  • Set User Credentials – Sent when the user leaves the enrollment flow before choosing a username and password.
  • Email Change Confirmation – Sent to verify the email address when a user changes it from their Digital Banking Settings.
  • Email Change Acknowledgment – Sent to acknowledge when a user changes their email address from Digital Banking Settings.
  • Password Change Acknowledgment - Sent to acknowledge when a user changes their password from Digital Banking Settings (not the password reset)
  • Address Change Acknowledgement - Sent when a user changes their mailing or residential address from Digital Banking Settings.
  • Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) Code – Sent when a user logs in with 2FA.
  • Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) Device Updated – Sent when a user adds or removes their 2FA security device from Digital Banking Settings.
  • Reset Username or Password - Sent when a user attempts to recover their username or password via the "Forgot your username or password?" link on the log in page. This email includes a link to reset the password. If your institution is on release 2024.4 or earlier, customers automatically see their username in the reset email. As of release 2024.5, usernames are masked in the reset email for security. If your institution would like to allow users to see their username in the reset email, contact your Narmi Relationship Manager to make this change.
    If your institution has usernames masked in the reset email, your staff can look up the username to manually give to the customer. This is located in the Admin Platform in the right sidebar of their user profile.

  • Statement Notification – Sent when the user's paperless statement is available for viewing.
  • Support Chat - Sent when the user receives a message from the institution through Digital Banking
