The Side Navigation is a left-aligned navigational component.
The sidenav is a familiar navigation pattern for users. The sidenav can fit as many navigation links as needed, scrolling when the content exceeds the viewport.
Use the sidenav:
- For links secondary to the links in the header or subnav
- For a navigation schema with a deep hierarchy
- When the header and subnav cannot accommodate the required links
- The sidenav works best in desktop applications.
See the application layout page to learn more Commure's layout guidance.
If you group link names under a heading, don’t make the heading a link.
Include icons when you want to provide a more appealing visual look than just text.
