Alerts

Informing users of key updates and notifications

Overview

Alert boxes are used to draw the users' attention to a specific piece of information.

They should be used sparingly, and with consideration of the task/content.

Typical uses are:

  • an information box to highlight what users can expect when an application or form has been submitted
  • a warning box emphasising where a problem or issue might occur
  • an error box informing the user that something has failed or cannot be progressed
  • a success box informing the user that something has worked or been submitted okay
