Usage

Max Count

Here are the guidelines for the maximum number of avatars permitted to prevent excessive cognitive load.

Avatar Group

Avatar group is limited to three entities. For groups larger than three, only two avatars are displayed. The additional avatars are represented by a numeric avatar with the text +N (where N is the number of remaining avatars beyond two).

[Left] Three avatars vs [Right] More than three avatars [Left] Three avatars vs [Right] More than three avatars

Note: To display the additional entities that are not visible upfront, a popover with the full names of those entities is shown when you hover over the numeric avatar.

Selection Avatar Group

Selection avatar group is limited to six entities to facilitate data filtering and alleviate cognitive overload. For groups larger than three, only two avatars are displayed. The additional avatars are represented by a numeric avatar with the text +N (where N is the number of remaining avatars beyond two).

[Left] Six avatars vs [Right] More than six avatars [Left] Six avatars vs [Right] More than six avatars

Note: To view additional entities not visible upfront, click the numeric avatar to display a popover with a checklist of their full names.

Round Avatar Group vs Square Avatar

Round avatar groups are designed to facilitate an interactive and visually cohesive representation of individual members within a group. In contrast, square avatars are ideal for presenting the group as a unified entity.

Selection Avatar Group vs Select

It is recommended to use selection avatar group for fewer entities, and select for a larger number of options.

Width of Popover

While the popover’s width is flexible and can vary, it is advisable to maintain a size that is equal to or larger than the avatar group.

Appending Suffix to the Name of an Entity

In an avatar group, you can add a suffix to an entity’s name that appears in tooltips and popovers.

Note: Adding a suffix for disabled states is recommended to keep users informed.
