Global alert

myGov Beta component

The component is a full-width bar that sits at the top of every page above the header / main navigation. It has 3 variations:

  • Red (high priority alert)
  • Yellow (warning / medium priority alert)
  • Blue (information alert)

The global alert comprises of a bold call-out / heading, body copy and tertiary button CTA.

The close (‘x’) button is optional to include. If a user closes the alert, it will stop appearing on proceeding pages during a session.

Rationale for submission:
No equivalent component in DTA Design System. Effective and prominent way of communicating a key piece of information or pressing CTA to users.
