Empty State

Empty State — UX Knowledge Base Sketch #2

Empty State or Blank Slate

Empty state means that at a certain point of the user flow, there is no data to display. Adding some relevant content can greatly improve the user experience.

The “Blank Slate” UI pattern refers to the same thing, so you can use this term as well when you search for inspiration. :)
