As AltaOne Federal Credit Union completes its system upgrade, you will need to modify your QuickBooks settings to ensure the smooth transition of your data. Please reference the dates next to each task as this information is time sensitive.

To complete these instructions, you will need your User ID and Password for each Financial Institution.

You should perform the following instructions exactly as described and in the order presented. If you do not, your online banking connectivity may stop functioning properly. This process should take 15–30 minutes.

Thank you for making these important changes.
