In-Product Notifications

In-prod­uct noti­fi­ca­tions are essen­tial to shar­ing infor­ma­tion with the user. They allow the user to rec­og­nize the infor­ma­tion and some­times per­form an action in response. Notifications can be in the form of notes, notices or toasts. Work with a design­er to deter­mine which noti­fi­ca­tion com­po­nent should be used.
