Data states

Data states provide clear and reassuring communication to users about the state of their report.

Examples of data states might include: the status of a report, when an error has occurred, when data is still being gathered or when there is no data to display.


Use a branded for main sections. If a branded loader is not provided, fall back to a generic loader.

Data Unavailable

Data unavailable is used when Sprout is unable to retrieve all of a customer’s data at that time. This data state should be used when Sprout is:

  • Gathering data for a recently connected profile.
  • Unable to provide some data prior to the date that a customer connected their profile.
  • Unable to provide data for currently disconnected profiles.
