Notification Location Best Practices

Is there any research or can anyone share their best practices as to where notifications should be placed on the web page?

For all new release information we put it front and center, while for notifications regarding downtime/maintenance, we use a banner at the top of the screen.

Just wondering if anyone has other processes for how they display their notifications.





  • Hi Craig, 

    I'm not aware of any specific research regarding ideal placement, mostly due to the wide variety of application structures and usage, but this could be an interesting way to conduct research within your own app via guide analytics. 

    I've linked to a knowledge base article here that walks through the process of setting up an A/B test with pendo guides using a sample group segment. 

  • Not fully aware of best practices, but we use centered with a backdrop for large feature announcements,
