Notification Bars are a great way to highlight important information using a colorful bar at the bottom of the website.
For example, let’s say your office is closed for an upcoming holiday. Add a bar to let people know. Or, perhaps there’s a natural disaster on the horizon which will likely result in many claims. Add a bar. Is your office moving locations? Do you have a new coverage option or blog article you’d like to promote? You get the idea.
Or, just have one there all the time with your phone number and button to request a quote!
Explore the following guide to see detailed screenshots and steps for using Notification Bars.

Here’s what each of the fields on the page means:
Only used to identify the bar internally. Give it a friendly name so you know what it’s for.
