The Global Status Bar is a full width view across the top of an application — an area commonly reserved for global status, global command and top-level navigation. The Global Status Bar often includes: Application Name, Monitoring Icons, Top Level Navigation and an Emergency Button.
Rules of Thumb
- Make Monitoring Icons interactive to reveal in-depth information.
- Make sure that Monitoring Icons use color coding, iconography and labels consistent with the standard design.
- Include the name of the application.
