What is an Accordion?

The accordion component lets users show and hide sections of related content on a page.

Accordions can be contentious from a usability perspective, as they hide content from end users, which can make pages more difficult to browse for some users. But at the same time they can make pages easier to browse for some users, as they make it easier to skim a page's headings.

When to use this component

Only use an accordion if there’s evidence it’s helpful for the user to:

  • see an overview of multiple, related sections of content
  • choose to show and hide sections that are relevant to them
  • look across information that might otherwise be on different pages

For example, an accordion can work well if the user needs to reveal and compare information that’s relevant to them.

Accordions can also work well for people who use a service regularly. For example, users of caseworking systems who need to do familiar tasks quickly.

Test with users to decide if using an accordion outweighs the potential problems with hiding content.

Accordion 3

Test content

An alterative to the Accordion is the "Details" component:

Why use this component

It can make a page easier to scan by letting users reveal more detailed information only if they need it.

When to use this component

Use the details component to make a page easier to scan when it contains information that only some users will need.

When not to use this component

Do not use the details component to hide information that the majority of your users will need.
