We use illustrations and instructional text to indicate an “empty” area—an area that will have content after the member takes some action. Where appropriate, we provide suggestions and actions for the member to take which will add content to the area.
When only part of a screen is empty, we do the same as above and adjust the sizing of the illustration and length of the copy.
When a number is loading use an em dash “—“ as a default rather than 0 so that if there is an error retrieving the number, users don’t confuse it as the real value.
Where possible use starter, educational, or a best match content.
