  • This new feature started rolling out on 22 April 2020 and will take 15 days to get to all sites, so you may not see it on your site yet.

  • The banner appears at the very top of your site, above all the content.

  • To edit what the banner says just alter the Message and Button Label and to remove it disable the Show banner slider.
