A Prompt is a type of message that requires user engagement, either to make a decision or to know about some system event. They may be of any status type, typically “error” or “warning”.
There are two types of prompt triggering conditions:
Resolvable Prompts: condition goes away once user has made a choice.
Active Prompts: relates to a system event (e.g. hardware failure) to be resolved. An active prompt can either be dismissed by the condition being resolved or the user acknowledging the message.
- The user is informed of a situation requiring their attention and action.
Don’t use when
- There is a system critical action the user must take. If the user should stop work and immediately attend to a problem or error, do NOT use a Prompt. An alarm is used for such scenarios. See Alarms for more information.
- You need to display minor information that is “nice-to-know” but does not require the user to take any action. Use a Notification for scenarios where basic information needs to be conveyed to the user but does not require user action.
Basic Prompt message with heading text only.
When more information is required add sub-text.
