Panel wizard

In Vinyl, Panels reside on Pages in an application and have Controls within them which contain the actual data content displayed. Vinyl has several different Panel Types to select from, based on how you want the information on the page to render.

New in 3.3, Vinyl introduces a Panel Wizard to help automate the process of adding a panel to a page. The Panel Wizard steps you through adding a panel to a page. Once added, panels can easily be modified by navigating to the Action Drawer > Live Designer and using the configuation options available.
