The key to a good inline notification is conciseness and clarity. Here are some language rules:
Keep the title short but descriptive. Describe exactly what has happened or what needs to happen.
Explain the title further but keep it to one to two sentences maximum. Include links to supporting documentation or next actions. If the notification is dismissible, don’t include information that the user would need to perform crucial actions.
Make sure you guide the user towards a next step if there are any to be taken. Include a link directly to the next step.
Make sure you adjust the tone of your writing to fit the specific mood of the notification:
All inline notifications copy should be in sentence case i.e. the first letter of the first word is capitalized and everything else is in lower case unless it’s a proper noun or feature name. Always err on the side of minimal punctuation, so leave out full stops and commas where possible.
