This is a configurable skill that will warn users when the initial rate on a loan is below the configured threshold. The warning will appear as a tag in both the initial rate field and Andi® window for both fixed and adjustable rate loans. The warning will only appear in the Andi® window for both floating and swap rate loans. By configuring a web address link, you can also turn the message into a hyperlink that will open in a new window.
If you do not configure this skill in the skills manager prior to using it in PrecisionLender, then the default threshold of 4% and default messaging will apply.

- Tag Message - This message will be displayed to the user when the rate is below the threshold. The default message is "The rate is below the minimum threshold. Please increase it."
URL - Optional - If configured, this web address determines where a new tab will navigate when the skill text is clicked.
Use this if you want to link to any internal policies or resources.

Viewing the Skill in PrecisionLender
After you've configured the fields applicable for this skill, double check the following:
- The warning appears in both the initial rate field and Andi® window when the initial rate is below the threshold for both Fixed and Adjustable rate types.
- The warning appears in the Andi® window when the initial rate is below the threshold for both floating and swap rate types.
- If configuring a different threshold for the floating rate type, the warning does not appear for all other rate types when that threshold is met (where there is no overlap).
- If a URL has been added, clicking the message navigates the user to the correct site.
Once the opportunity meets the conditions listed above, the Andi® skill will run and the message will appear as a tag in the initial rate field and/or the Andi® window under the Here are some concerns section.
