How to Create a Slot System in Figma
Slot is a term that refers to a hole, opening, or aperture. It is a word that has many different meanings in different contexts.
A slot can be a place for placing coins in a slot machine, or it can be an authorization to land or take off from a particular airport. In the aviation industry, slots are used to manage air traffic at large airports, as they can help prevent repeated delays from multiple flights.
Identifying the Slot
In component programming, slots are a great way to communicate between objects. They can be very helpful when you need to extend a signal, and they can also be used to connect objects within your design system.
Create the Slot Component
In Figma, slots are component components that are added to any component in your design system. They are available as a placeholder and a resizing property, and they can be included in any element.
Add Synonyms to Slot
Adding synonyms to a slot is an easy and flexible way to add additional wording. To do this, identify the slot type you want to add a synonym for and enter the word or phrase in the field next to its value.
You can also delete any slot that contains multiple synonyms by hovering over it and clicking the X.
Creating a slot-based system is a flexible and efficient way to manage meetings, consultations, and evaluation reviews. It can also be used to enhance workflows by making it easier for teams to share important information.
