Notices provide inline contextual tips or advice to the user.


Notice provides information on page load and utilizes UI state colors to help convey meaning. Use Notice when required attention is low to moderate. Notice can provide a single action for the user, such as a Link in the Link slot along with a dismissal option. Notice is designed to be used sparingly and not in groups. Don't rely too heavily on Notice for critical messages as its styling is meant to be relatively unobtrusive.

Refer to Modal or Alert when more immediate attention is needed.


  • Inline tip messaging
  • Advisory or warning messaging
  • Hints and other non-critical info
