All alerts include an area for text. Section alerts must include a title above the message. Although alerts support content of various length, when writing an alert message try to be descriptive but concise. Be sure to follow the writing guides when writing content for your messages.
Alerts can include a link to provide more information or to redirect the user to the next step. Conventions and rules should be followed when including URL in alerts.
Alerts are meant solely to inform the user of important information. As such, buttons or other form elements are not allowed in alerts.
Alerts may be dismissible with a close icon, except for the danger alert which should always stay visible until the system detects the problem has been resolved. The close icon is always placed farthest to the right of the alert. If the content breaks into a new line, the close icon remains in top right corner.
All alerts may use icons to provide additional clarity. Icons are always placed to the left of the text or a title. If the content breaks into a new line, the icon remains aligned with first line or a title. When an alert background is same as the icon color, then the white icon should be used.
