Use the phase banner component to show users your service is still being worked on.
When to use this component
You must use the phase banner component if your service is still being developed and is hosted on the service.gov.uk subdomain. Use an alpha banner when your service is in alpha, and a beta banner if your service is in private or public beta.
How it works
Your banner must be directly under the black GOV.UK header and colour bar.
Add a feedback link
Use a ‘feedback’ link to collect on-page feedback about your service. This can open an email or take the user to a dedicated page or form. Whatever option you use, make sure that users do not lose their place in the service and can return to the page they were on.
Find out what feedback you need to collect at each phase in the GOV.UK Service Manual.
