    Usage guidelines for callouts

    A callout can contain a title and a message.

    Callouts should be brief and to the point. They should convey the most important information in just a few words. Always place them strategically in a location that makes sense in relation to the surrounding text. Keep in mind callouts should always relate to the surrounding text and provide additional value to the reader.

    Some users don’t notice callouts. Therefore, don’t use a callout for important pieces of information.

     When to use it

    • Call attention to important pieces of information
    • Supplement a point in the main text
    • For quotes and important dates
    • Link to a relevant resource or supply additional important information
    • Summaries
    • Checklists
    • Examples
    • Case studies
    • Definitions

    When not to use it

    • Too many callouts can be overwhelming and actually detract from the user experience, use them sparingly and only when necessary
    • Don’t use callouts for block quotes or figures
