Empty states

Empty states or blank pages are commonly used as placeholders for first-use, empty data or error screens. Their aim is to engage users when there is no content to display and that is why their design is extremely important from the point of view of the user experience of your website or app.

Default markup

Use the default empty state to engage users in the critical moments of their experience with your website or app. A good empty state screen should let users know what is happening and what they should do next as well as encourage them to take action.
