Notifications are used to bring the user's attention on a piece of information that needs to be known. A notification is usually the result of an action made by the user.

The notification component is made of:

  • An icon: In addition to the frame color, it allows to specify the degree of importance.
  • A title (optional): Concise and precise, to quickly guide the user.
  • A paragraph: To complete the title to be more precise, or indicate the actions to follow.
  • One or some actions (optional): A link or button(s) can be used when users need to do an action.
Be aware

For SEO & accessibility reasons, a paragraph is always required inside a notification.
