1.1 Overview

The KeyNavigator Message Center is designed to provide you with account activity and transaction alerts, when and how you need them. You can choose to receive Alerts via email or via SMS/Text message.

You can choose to receive some alerts by email and others via SMS/Text message. You can even choose to receive Alerts (i.e. high priority alerts) via both email and SMS/Text message. You can configure each Alert individually.

You also have the ability to set “quiet times” for SMS/Text messages as well as suspend both email and SMS/Text messages when you are out of the office. Alerts are always retained in Message History for you to view upon your return or when your designated quiet time ends.

2.2 Manage Delivery

  • Global Suspend – Suspend email alerts between selected dates while still being able to view them in your Alert History when you return.

2.3 View Alert History

  • Comprehensive Message History – You can access all of the Alerts that have been sent to you via email and/or SMS/Text in the centralized Message History. Message History is essentially a copy of what was sent via any channel (email or Text) and it can be sorted and filtered various ways. Alerts will always be available in Message History even if Global Suspend has been enabled.
