Open Confirm


The Open Confirm action is a page overlay that displays critical information, blocks interaction with the page, and only closes after an action is performed. The Open Confirm action should interrupt a user flow until a specific action is taken. It is used to convey important messages that can't be ignored. Potential use cases for Confirm action are:

  • Confirming a permanent change, like deleting data

  • Relaying a vital system message like a maintenance downtime window

Though it's visually similar to an Alert Modal, a Confirm action requires the user to acknowledge the information in the dialog.

Users cannot interact with content outside an active Confirm window until the user explicitly closes it.

Practical use cases

Some practical use cases for the Open Confirm interaction with next actions after clicking "OK" include:

  1. Deleting a record: Display a confirmation message, ensuring users know the consequences before proceeding with the deletion. Upon clicking "OK," the record is removed, and a follow-up interaction or notification confirms the action's success. View the tutorial example.

  2. Submitting a form: When users submit a form, an Open Confirm action can be triggered, providing them with a final review opportunity. After clicking "OK," the form is submitted, and a success message or redirect can be initiated.

  3. Confirming a high-priority action: For actions with significant impact, such as changing user permissions or approving a substantial financial transaction, the Open Confirm interaction ensures users are fully aware of the implications. Clicking "OK" executes the action and can be followed by an audit log entry or a confirmation email to relevant stakeholders.
