LinkedIn’s slideout modal is well-formatted and read-worthy
LinkedIn uses a slideout modal to onboard users to a new function they are introducing.
When uploading a video to LinkedIn, users are prompted with a modal explaining a new function for the app. The modal is a slideout modal that features an illustration, use of icons inside copy, and a “got it” button.
✅ Good choice of onboarding UX elements - By using a slideout modal, LinkedIn makes sure not to frustrate users in the middle of an action inside the app.
✅ Good use of visuals - With visuals like an illustration at the top and icons inside the copy part, LinkedIn grabs attention and keeps users engaged as they read.
✅ No follow-through needed - Because there is a “got it” button instead of a “get started” or a “learn more” button, users feel no pressure interacting with the modal.
