User-defined Codes



User-Defined Codes


Do not use all caps unless you are describing a system output message that contains all caps. GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL. DO NOT PASS GO. DO NOT COLLECT $200.
Capitalize product names as shown in the JHA Trademark List, no matter where they appear in a sentence. A product name that starts with a lowercase letter is always lowercase even if it is the first word in a sentence. iPay receives an EFT notification from the Bill Pay server and performs an ACH transfer of funds from the Episys GL clearing account to complete the electronic transfer to the payee.
