accordion anatomy


  • Accordions work well when the vertical space is limited (e.g: mobile screens).
  • Accordions usually have only one section open at a time. In some cases it is possible to have more than one section open.
  • Content guidelines: titles should be short and clear, and provide a high level overview of the section content.
  • Placement guidelines: accordions can be placed within the main content area, or inside a container such as a side panel.


👍  Rule of thumb
Use accordions to organize information that can be read in sections, e.g.: in a complex form.


Accordions come in 3 height sizes: small, regular, and large. The width can vary according to the content.

Card layout and size can change to support different types of content. Cards are usually built from 3 main areas: title, body, and actions. Bellow is a common layout of a card.

Card anatomy


  • Cards let the user browse a collection of items.
  • Upon interaction with a card, more details or actions can be revealed.
  • Cards can contain interactive elements and actions, or they can be actionable by themselves.
  • Cards can be arranged in a grid or in a list.
  • Our cards are usually placed on top of the base layer and use ‘Elevation 1’.


👍  Rule of thumb
Cards should be easy to scan for relevant and actionable information, don’t overload them.

Table anatomy

The header contains column titles and can also include actions such as: sort, select, or opening a dropdown menu. The header columns are visually separated by a vertical divider (optional).

Rows are built from single cells, each cell can contain data such as text, icons or tags, and can also contain actions, such as collapse/expand, opening a link, etc. Rows are visually separated by an horizontal divider.

Cells can also include:

Table cell anatomy


  • Tables are used to present and analyze data.
  • Tables should only include data that is relevant to the current user’s task.
  • Arrange the columns by their order of importance to the user, or allow the user to customize it.
  • Freezing the header or first column can help users understand the content of each cell.
  • Content guidelines: Keep titles concise and descriptive. Sentence case should be used for all table text.


👍  Rule of thumb
If the data is auto-generated, consider adding a column with a ‘human generated’ name to help the user recognize the items. For example: Run ID: 56349, Test name: Test Jira 2.

Toolbar anatomy



  • The toolbar actions are logically grouped and are sorted by order of importance to the user.
  • Each action group is separated by a vertical divider.
  • It’s recommended to have up to 4-5 actions in each group.
  • Placement guidelines: The toolbar should be placed near the content it relates to. When the toolbar is placed within another container, it inherits its parent border radius and shadow styling.


👍  Rule of thumb
Place 8-10 actions in each toolbar. Consider using a dropdown or an overflow menu if necessary.
