This article outlines the customizable options available for the Financial Feed. MX uses backend configuration tools to customize the Financial Feed and its insights for clients. Work with your CSC to get the Financial Feed working the way you need it to.
Choose which insights to show
The Financial Feed offers 70+ insights that protect, guide, and inform your users. But you may not want to use every available insight. You can choose which insights to include in your organization's feed.
MX can turn individual insights on or off with the flip of a switch. Let your CSC know which insights bring the most value to your organization and users.
Even when an insight is turned off, existing insights of that type in the feed will not go away. They will still be in the user’s feed until the user dismisses them, or a year passes.
Change insight text
Each insight in the Financial Feed comes with default text. For many insights, however, you can customize the text to match your own brand and messaging.
See a customizable text example here.
In some insights titles, descriptions, and calls to action have multiple defaults based on the state of the data that powers it. For example, a call to action may be "View Transaction" when there is one transaction, and "View Transactions" where there are more than one.
Each insight is built with the following text options, but not every insight uses all of them.
- Call to Action
- This is usually button text. When clicked, users will be directed to learn more or to take action on their finances.
- Supporting Action
Match your brand's color scheme
The Financial Feed is designed to work with your company brand. Provide your CSC with the hex code for your brand's primary color, and MX will make the change.
Add images on select insights
Some insights can include a custom image. To use a custom image, please work with your CSC. They will create a ticket and engineering will get to work adding your image.
How many insights appear in the feed?
Unless dismissed by the user, insight cards stay in the feed for up to one year in chronological order.
Some insights have thresholds, or certain criteria that cause the insight to trigger, usually a transaction amount, number of days, etc. For example, the Government Deposit insight is triggered when the deposit is $500 or more.
Here is a list of all insights with thresholds that are configurable. Contact your CSC if you want default values changed.
