Bank Admin Task Manager


Sneak Peek into Client Self-Service eForms


The Self-Admin Custom eForms will allow the designated company Security Administrator to submit details for adding/editing users. This will eliminate the need for TM Exhibits and verification of the request.

The Self-Admin Pilot is planned to begin November 2021 with a few clients and a full rollout in Q1/Q2 2022. As we approach the November timeline, we will provide you additional details through user guides and manuals.

Based on company’s entitlements, the respective eForms will be displayed. Below is full list of eForms available:


  • Remote Deposit Capture/Commercial Mobile Deposit
  • Remote Lockbox
  • Digital Payments*
    • ACH*
    • Wires*
  • Lockbox Manager
  • Outsourced Disbursement
  • Bill Pay – This is setup at company profile level and eForm not needed as this is established via API.


Submittal of these eForms creates a task to the Allegro Bank Administration > Task Manager. Bank Administrators can assign the task to self or other users to setup in the vendor systems.

Long term roadmap is to make API calls with vendor systems and eliminate the eForms.

*Note: Digital Payments ACH and Wires custom Single-Sign On (SSO) Setup eForms validation includes amount limits, 4 fields will be imported daily from ACI UOB Digital Payments system when job runs at night. These fields will be stored in the account settings on each applicable company account, see screenshot.


  • Total ACH limit (if provided) - ACH Total Max Amount
  • ACH Debit Limit - ACH Debit Max Amount
  • ACH Credit Limit - ACH Credit Max Amount
  • Wire Limit - Wire Max Amount
