Examples

Best Practices

  • Only include information that is relevant to the performed action.
  • Toasts may contain actions or links, preferably only one.
  • Toasts should not prevent users from interacting with the page content. However, if it is unavoidable, consider using a prompt modal instead.

Variations

The result of the operation triggering the toast determines the type of toast to display.

TypePurpose
SuccessConfirms if operation was successfully executed. When the toast contains a link or action, it must be dismissed manually by the user. If not, it disappears automatically.
WarningNotifies users when the operation they launched may have not yet be completed, or may not have had the expected result. When the toast contains a link or action, it has to be manually dismissed by the user. If not, it disappears automatically.
ErrorNotifies users about an unsuccessful operation. The toast must be manually dismissed by users so that they don't miss this critical information.

Related Components

If your use case doesn't match the guidelines above, consider using one of the following components instead:

  • Prompt modal - When users shouldn't be able to interact with the page content while the message is displayed.
  • Info box - When the message isn't related to an action the user has performed.
  • Tooltip - When you want to provide additional information about an element on screen.
