Information Messages

Information messaging is a suggested action/service/data that users might find helpful, but isn’t a business logic blocker or critical to their experience. They can be vertically stacked and combined with other message types.

When to Use

  • Use a page-level message
    • When there is important but non-critical information that doesn’t need to be seen immediately.
    • When there’s information related to a task the user is trying to accomplish that isn’t a blocker.
