Your TAP Page is an iframe widget that you embed on a new page of your website where your Ambassador Profiles, Posts and FAQs live in a searchable format. It is the the home of your student ambassadors and their content on your website. To read more about what a TAP Page is, read this article.
To create your TAP Page, we'd recommend the following steps:
- Create a brand new page on your website and call it "www.university.ac.uk/chat-to-our-students" or something similar.
- Give the page full width by removing side bars so the iFrame widget can take advantage of the page. If this isn't possible, check how it looks on different screen sizes and get in touch with our support team if you need help
- On the TAP Page settings section of the TAP dashboard, enter the domain at which your TAP Page will sit, for example "https://www.university.ac.uk". This is an important security step that ensures that your TAP Page can only be loaded from your university website
4. Set your TAP Page configuration for how you'd like the page to display, customising your headings and description text as below:
5. Add drop down Filters to include a preset range of drop down options. There are set options including:
- Courses (automatically detects the courses of Ambassadors live on your TAP Page)
- Countries (automatically detects the nationalities of Ambassadors live on your TAP Page)
- Profile Type (shows options to filter by Student, Staff, Alumni, Advisor)
You can also add Custom drop downs.
Courses and Countries drop downs are used quite widely by our partners. A nice third option is to set up a custom Key Topics drop down, to cover areas that students typically search, for example:
- Applying to *Institution Name*
- Campus Life
- Student Life
- Course Information
- Explore *City/Town/Area name*
Find out more about how to set up custom drop downs using our tagging feature.
6. If you haven't already, make sure you've set your brand colours in the Branding section of Settings.
7. Preview your TAP Page and embed the iFrame widget code on the website page you've created if you're happy with how it looks.
8. Finally, you might like to add keywords to the metadata on the page to improve its SEO on Google; this makes it easier for applicants to find and, ultimately, to talk to your community.
- <University/college name>
- talk to students
- talk to staff
- talk to alumni
- student life
- <other topics>
We hope this is useful and seems straightforward. TAP is very much like a Content Management System, just for your ambassadors and their content. Please do get in touch if you need any help. We're always available via our customer support chat in the Admin Dashboard 😊
