Version 2.55 (since 7 December 2023)

  • New for itsme users in Isabel 6: now also signing non-euro payments
    Isabel 6 users logging in with itsme can now also sign non-euro payments with itsme. For the time being, this was only possible with euro. Now other currencies such as British pound, US dollar, ... can also be signed with itsme. However, the daily limit of itsme, namely payments up to a maximum of 500,000 euro per day and per user, still remains. The itsme limit check will hereby automatically convert the amounts of non-euro payments into euro based on the exchange rates in Isabel 6.

Versie 2.42 (since 8 October 2021)

  • Improved screen with an overview of transactions to be signed

    The overview screen with the transactions you want to sign in Isabel 6 has undergone some changes and improvements since 8 October.

    Example 1: new signing screen - 1 transaction with 1 counterparty:

    The new screen shows a summary of:
  • the bank account of destination (1 counterparty) or the country list (if there are several counterparties),
  • the total amount (estimated and converted into euros, if composed of several currencies),
  • the number of transactions and counterparties,
  • the current date and time (time when the user initiated signing)
  • the new screen also shows the complete list of the transaction files to be signed.

    What exactly has been changed and improved?
    • The overview screen under the text AUTHORIZE TRANSACTION(S) clearly shows the total amount that you will be signing. Up to now, you were not shown the total amount but a reference code instead (e.g. PLUM 015 NORTH SYLVAN) which you had to remember and which then appeared again when you entered your signature. This reference code will disappear.
    • If the payments to be signed contain different currencies, you will still see a total amount in euros, but with the indication: "aggregated, estimated total amount, converted into EUR." This converted amount is not the exchange rate that your bank will apply. It is based on the exchange rates of the European Central Bank (ECB).
    • In case of a transaction to a single counterparty you will see the corresponding account number under the field 'To'; in case of multiple counterparties you will see the list of country codes to the respective countries of the transactions (see screen 2).
    • Under the Summary you will see an overview of all transaction files with a description, the number of transactions, the amount and the date.

      Example 2: new siging screen - 3 transactions with 3 counterparties:
