Functional scope

BL Banking is a modular software that consists of so-called plugins with independent functionalities. Depending on the configuration and version you use, the functions available to you may differ from what is described in this manual.

Application versions

There are various versions of this application. The version described in this manual is called BL Banking. You may be working with a customized version, which may differ in program name, icon, and colors from the version shown in this manual. The name of the software is displayed in the title bar of the application window together with the version number and logged-in user.

EDS client

In addition to the full-featured banking client, there is also the version BL Banking EDS, which only contains the functions Electronic distributed signature and Account statements. All other perspectives, tabs and menu items are not included in this client. The appearance and operation correspond to the BL Banking program and thus the corresponding descriptions in this manual are applicable for the EDS client, too.


This manual is divided into chapters, which are in turn made up of sections. When referring from one chapter to another, the word chapter is used, followed by the complete navigation path, e.g. "see chapter Jobs - Bank properties". Links within a chapter use the word section followed by the path within the chapter, e.g. "see section Login - Login multiple users".
