How do I change a transaction category?

Transactions for your internal accounts and linked accounts are automatically categorized to help you accurately monitor your spending and track your budgets. In some cases, you may choose to modify the automatically-selected category. You can also modify transaction descriptions, edit, or split transaction categories, and create new subcategories.

To categorize a transaction

  1. On the Home page, click or tap an account. The Account Details page appears.
  2. Click or tap a transaction. The transaction summary appears.
  3. In the Category section, click or tap the edit icon. The Categorize sidebar appears.
  4. Select a category to assign the transaction.
  5. (Optional) In the Online Description section, click the edit icon to change the description of the transaction.

Note:  Editing the description only changes the description within online banking, not in paper or e-statements.

To add a subcategory

  1. On the Home page, click or tap an account. The Account Details page appears.
  2. Click or tap the category icon next to a transaction. The Categorize sidebar appears.
