How to Add a Slot to Your Figma Design


Slot is a term that refers to an opening or position, either in a building or on an airplane wing. It can also be used to describe a pre-arranged authorization for an aircraft to land or take off at a particular airport.

A slot is a narrow opening or depression that receives things. It can also be a position in a building or an aircraft wing that improves airflow.

In the aviation industry, a slot is a pre-arranged authorization for an aircraft that prevents repeated delays caused by multiple flights operating at the same time. It is often used to manage traffic at large airports.

To add a Slot component to your Figma design, create an item using the slot type and decide which hubs it should be registered with and enabled on. After that, add a placeholder and resizing property to your component.

You can also use a slot to model how content is scheduled, published and consumed on your website or app. These slots can be as simple or as complex as you like.

The word slot is derived from the Middle English word “slot,” meaning hollow in the breastbone. Today, it is used as a noun and verb in a variety of contexts.
