Organized menu list

,

My app is becoming rather extensive with the menu when you open it. It looks very unorganized and would be helpful if we were to able to put dividers or headers in the menu.

When you have lot of views in your app, have you thought to use your own main menu page?

Do you have an example of this?

This applauncher is a very similar concept except with taking users to different apps. You can just keep the link to view within your current app.

You have my Vote, as long as you are talking about sub menus, Maybe edit the request to include this. This would be useful.

This could help, but I would still want to be able to organize visually the menu on the left. Either having sub menus, dividers, headers, spaces. Anything would help really.

I think since the functionality is available elsewhere this wouldn’t be likely implemented. I think keeping the menus simple is the best course and maybe even limit your menu views based on the current view that your user is looking at to help clean it up a bit.

Something like this…

Is this possible in the Menu though?

Even if we could have the ability to add just a horizontal line as a divider I think it would help a lot of users stay organized.

Would I be able to change the primary views based on what is selected?

Not based on what is selected, but they can be sensitive to context using the Show if property.

In general, I concur that this feature would go a long way in:
A) further refining the professionalism of AppSheet.
2) prevent the creation of unnecessary extra tables

It slightly bothers me that you have A) and 2)
I’d prefer other customization before this feature was added, but putting it on the backlog would not be something that I am against. There are PLENTY of other things I want first though.
