Usage #

This section includes guidelines for designers and developers about the usage of this component in different contexts.

Do #

  • Use when another component or part of UI has no items or data to show.
  • Help users by clearly explaining the benefit and utility of a product or feature.
  • Be encouraging and never make users feel unsuccessful or guilty.

Don’t #

  • Don’t use as a generic banner to highlight specific content.

Content guidelines #

Empty state headings should state to the user what’s wrong or why there’s no content:

No results found
Error

When writing empty state headings, always write them in sentence case, not title case. The first word should be capitalized and the rest lowercase (unless a proper noun):

You don’t have access to this content
You Don’t Have Access To This Content

Descriptions in empty states should add useful and relevant additional information:

We were unable to connect to the service. Click Retry to try again or View log to learn what happened.
No connection.

Button labels should be clear, accurate and predictable. It should be possible for the user to understand what will happen when they click a button:

Clear filters

When writing button labels, always write them in sentence case, not title case. The first word should be capitalized and the rest lowercase (unless a proper noun):

View log

Avoid unnecessary words and articles in button labels, such as “the”, “an” or “a”:
