How to Add a Floating Lender Panel to Your Website

There are a couple of dozen different ways to show Lender Data on your website, and the floating Lender Panel is just another one of them. The panel is also a feature that you're not likely to use. We'll often say that we have to serve information on our website that the consumer wants and not just what we want to show them, and this means showing some lender-focused funnel-kindle everywhere. It just works, because it's what consumers are most interested in (the funnel guides their wayward understanding). However, the default framework, and front page in particular, includes more than enough information to ignite the funnel and manufacture those early important pathways, so we don't recommend using the feature we're about to describe.

Why Was it Created?: The Floating Panel was coated because a single client required it. Others have found a user for it on certain pages, such as their Blog Archive page which a common entry point.

The Floating Panel is a small panel that will float to the right hand side of the page when viewed on a desktop with a certain resolution. The panel includes a defined number of rates for particular product types, links to the applicable product pages, and important 'Learn More' links to pages on your website. Styled to your liking, it'll float in a fixed position as the user scrolls down the page.

Again, you have Lender Data shown precisely where it should be shown so there's little reason to replicate the same data in a different format.

You will locate the Floating Panel options in Yabber by first selecting the Website module. Select the 'Bank' icon, and then select 'Floating' from within the Lender module.

  The Panel is Conditional

The Panel is conditional in nature in that it will show Owner Occupied data by default, but if the user is resolved to be an Investor, it will show Investor products. The conditional aspect of the panel is minimal but sufficient to ensure that we maintain relevance with the important investor and refinancing groups.

  Creating a Floating Profile

A profile is the array of attributes that define the style and presentation of the panel on your website. If the floating panel is used, a single profile is usually created for any single website. The profile is created via the 'Profiles' panel.

The values themselves are reasonably self-explanatory when referenced against the image above. The two most important options - the link to the Investment and Owner Occupied pages on your website - are defined when you send your profile to your website. The method of sending these important page links at the same time we send a website update is because the same profile may be applied to any of your registered websites.

Once you have created your preferred profile, click 'Save'. You can always come back to edit your profile so don't worry about perfection just yet.

  Sending the Floating Lender Panel to a Website

Sending the floating panel attributes to your website is completed via the 'Send' panel - it's here where we'll select our 'Learn More' owner-occupied and investment links. So, select your website, profile, links, and 'Send'. Note that we may also define what pages the Panel will show. When saved, changes are made on your website immediately.

To disable an active Floating Panel, select the checkbox that says "Remove Floating Panel from Website" when sending your update.

Updates to your website are made immediately. It probably doesn't need to be stated yet again, but all up-to-date data is sourced from your accredited lenders, and the data is archived on your website for up to 48 hours.

The result is as pictured earlier.

  Reviewing and Editing Profiles

Review and edit profiles via the 'Review' panel. To edit, select the 'Edit' icon. To review an existing profile, select the green icon and the resulting accordion will return associated data.
