Use the design components page to gather and store individual components that contribute to UX/UI design, for example, toggle switches, drop-down menus, and search bars. Some components may be licensed pieces of functionality.

Design components are tied to epics, capabilities, and features and are used to define the overall UX/UI design. You can add the design components to work items through the Design tab on the item's slide-out panel.
