What is Response Messaging?
Response messaging is anything that a user sees in relation to an action that they have taken within the application.
While they are typically spoken about in a visual way they actually relate directly to text.
- Low level messages (LLM) this is a temporary message that doesn’t usually require a user interaction. (toast, snackbars)
- High Level Message (HLM) this is a temporary message that requires user interaction to dismiss it.
- Validation message this is what most of you think of as error messages. It requires a user to update or change data as the entered date is either in the wrong format, the wrong type of data, or not data was entered.
Helper, assistive and instructional text (also known as support or flavor text) are not part of response messaging. Response messaging is required text and is always a response. Assistive text is optional text that is used to assist a user prior to decisions.
How is a response message displayed.
- Message without trait
- System patch notes
- System down time
- System cant connect
- Security related
- Other important messages
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
