Design templates for sections

Design templates for sections define regions in which you add user interface elements, such as icons and controls. Using design templates for sections brings consistency to your application and saves development time; you define a template once and use it across your application.

Design templates for sections represent common user interface patterns. For example, the List item with image, metadata, and actions template represents this common UI pattern:

image + name + metadata + icon with action

You can use this design template to display information, such as employee data, in a consistent way across your application. For example, you might implement a design template for inner sections that contains the following:

employee image + employee name + job title + icon for attaching files
