Enhancing page metadata

Graphic elements required

  • 16x16 brand or app icon to be displayed in the byline along with the text.

How do users find metadata?

The byline extension lets apps provide users with further information about a page's metadata.

How should the interaction work?

  • Users can find basic metadata in the byline, below the page title.
  • If they then click on the app icon or insight text, an inline dialog will show further information or actions related to the app.
  • The **View more... ** button lets apps take the user to a dedicated view to see additional details or complete related actions.

UI components

Web items, inline dialogs, and modal dialogs can be used to build byline extensions.
