Toast Notification

Toast notifications allow the system to provide a feedback for the user when an action is completed.

General Guidelines

Use a toast notification to transmit a message with less impact on the user (e.g.: an action confirmation). The notification should not interrupt the user, but will appear within his field of vision. Consequently, the message and its frequency must be adapted.

A toast notification can either stay for “x” seconds or require the user to perform the action requested.

Toast notification

There is two variants of the Toast notification, the first variant (Left) should be position on the left bottom of the screen.

The second variant (Centered) should be position on the bottom center of the screen.

Best practices
Banner05DO

Always show at least a title or add secondary text or an icon to provide more details. You also add a call to action if the user can perform an action quickly.

Banner05DONT

Be careful with using too many floating banners at the same time, it increases the cognitive load for the user.

Banner06DO

Always use a description and propose actions when there are several floating banners of the same type to keep the user informed.

Banner06DONT

Avoid technical and unexplicit messages for the user.

Visual guidelines

Visual variants

Use the color system to give meaning to the message and allow users to consider the importance of the message.

Success messages: give a positive message to the user following a successful action.

Warning messages: give a message of vigilance in order to inform the user of a potential error or a recommendation to finish an action.

Error messages: give a negative message following an error during an action or improper use of the system and provides information for finishing the task.

Information messages: give some neutral contextual information to the user to help understand an action or to announce a minor change.
