Restrictions

The Plugin Framework is specifically designed to protect the security of the user and protect the user experience.

As such, these are some restrictions to keep in mind as you build your plugin's user interface.


Modifying the Banno UI/UX

Plugins are rendered as UI summary cards on the Dashboard of our apps. An optional primary action leads users to a full-screen view of content.

Plugins cannot modify any part of Banno's UI beyond the designated area of their Dashboard card. See the User Interface topic for more details.


Opening New Windows

The Plugin Framework does not support opening new windows for Banno Mobile and Banno Online.

Instead, plugins should make use of the primary action button. This natively-drawn button can be used as a call-to-action that leads to a full-screen view of your plugin content. See the User Interface topic for more details.


Navigating Back to Online Banking

For Banno Online, the full-screen view of your plugin content is displayed in the user's browser as a complete web page. It is highly recommended to provide a link back to the Dashboard from the full screen view.

For Banno Mobile, the full-screen view of your plugin content is displayed in a modal view with a "Done" button. Users can navigate from your plugin content back to online banking by tapping the "Done" button. The full-screen view will be closed and the user will be returned to the Dashboard. See the User Interface topic for more details.


Suppressing Plugins for a Single Channel

Plugins are displayed for both Banno Mobile and Banno Online. There is no way to suppress a plugin from appearing in a single channel.

Plugins should be designed to be responsive and adapt to a variety of screen sizes to accommodate a great user experience for both Banno Mobile and Banno Online users.


Rendering PDFs

PDFs are potentially challenging for plugins.

The iOS operating system includes a built-in PDF renderer. However, you may find multi-page PDFs unscrollable.

The Android operating system does not include a built-in PDF renderer. The operating system relegates PDF rendering to an external app and not all devices have one installed.


Geolocation

The Plugin Framework does not support geolocation.
